Cruise & Maritime Voyages champions Australian domestic travel in new 2020-21 Season

Cruise & Maritime Voyages will cover all corners of Australia in its 2020-21 season, with a range of new destinations announced today.

This season, Vasco da Gama will make compelling domestic destinations even more accessible to Australians, with new ports of call including Darwin, Geelong and Port Arthur. The ship will also return to unique cruising destinations such as Wallaroo on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, offering travellers a chance to experience parts of Australia that they may not have considered before.

“Our new season on Vasco da Gama will really shine the light on domestic cruising for Australians, as we have found that many of our Australian guests are passionate about exploring their own backyard,” says Managing Director of CMV Australia, Dean Brazier.

“At CMV, we have a very high number of repeat guests, so we want to ensure that we are providing them with new, diverse destinations and varied itineraries each season within Australia and also across Asia. We offer short-break domestic cruises, local extended escapes and exotic cruises close to home.

“These new itineraries allow our guests to immerse themselves in the wildlife and nature of the Northern Territory, delve into the rich colonial histories and breathtaking landscapes of Tasmania, or enjoy a day exploring the relaxed coastal towns of Victoria. Vasco da Gama will also homeport out of Adelaide and Fremantle, giving travellers the opportunity to explore some very distinctive destinations in SA and WA.”

Vasco da Gama will also host guests on board for some exciting festive cruises, which have proven to be extremely popular in the 2019/20 season. These include a 10-night Christmas Cruise to Hobart from Adelaide visiting the stunning, rugged coastlines of Tasmania. This cruise will visit the world-class food and wine regions of Tasmania as well as the beautiful coastline of the Great Ocean Road, and prices for this cruise start from $1,485 per person twin share (Guest 1 from $2,969 with Guest 2 FREE).

In addition, Vasco da Gama will cruise Sydney to Adelaide via Melbourne, allowing East Coast guests to take only one flight. Prices for this cruise start from $535 per person twin share (Guest 1 from $1,069 with Guest 2 FREE). Other highlight voyages include a 14-night trip along the North West coast of Australia from Fremantle to Singapore visiting Geraldton, Broome, Darwin, Bali, and Java, and a 7-night Tasmanian Explorer cruise, which will head from Adelaide to Melbourne, Burnie, Portland and Port Lincoln before heading back to Adelaide.

Those wanting an immersive cultural journey through Asia can also take a Singapore roundtrip on a 15-night voyage through Asia, exploring Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Prices for this cruise start from $1,995 per person twin share (Guest 1 from $3,989 with Guest 2 FREE).

“Our short-break domestic cruises in particular have always been very popular for Australians,” continues Mr Brazier. “Many travellers enjoy the opportunity to take a week or so off and explore new areas within Australia, while also experiencing the wonderful facilities on board our ships.

“Some of our voyages within Australia are just three nights long, so travellers may not even need to take a day off work in order to take a relaxing cruise to world-class destinations.

“In addition, with our Buy One Get Free early booking special, short cruises like our 3-night New Year’s Indulgence cruise provide fantastic value at just $540 per person (Guest 1 from $1,079 with Guest 2 FREE),” continues Mr Brazier. “We have chosen to return the New Year’s cruise to Fremantle in 2020-21, due to overwhelmingly positive feedback from our guests, who loved the celebratory nature of the cruise.

“No matter the length of the cruise, we’re proud to offer an intimate atmosphere on board all of our ships, which keeps our guests coming back.”

Feedback from guests currently on board Vasco da Gama for her Singapore to London maiden voyage has been extremely positive, with guests particuarly enjoying the luxurious facilities in the Jade Wellness Spa, the variety of cuisine onboard and the flexible open-seating dining arrangements.

Vasco da Gama also provides a great opportunity for guests to “go it alone” with 40 cabins for solo travellers, guest meet-ups and a ship full of like-minded guests and friendly staff. Guests can get a taste of Vasco da Gama when she arrives in Australia for her first CMV season this December and enjoy her warm and personable atmosphere for themselves.
