2021 CMV Fleet Parade and Rotterdam Regatta

CMV Fleet Parade 2021

A Maritime Celebration

Rotterdam will play host to the highlight of the Summer 2021 Cruise Programme, where the entire CMV seven ship fleet will join together for a special parade and regatta in Rotterdam on Saturday 28 August 2021.

Part of a unique maritime celebration of CMV’s traditional style of cruising, the introduction in 2021 of the latest classic ships to join the fleet Amy Johnson and Ida Pfeiffer, and to celebrate Cruise Port Rotterdam’s 25th Anniversary, CMV’s classic and traditional ships will sail in convoy in both directions, up and down the Maas River for twenty-eight nautical miles.

The iconic Marco Polo has been chosen to spearhead the parade in recognition of being CMV’s first ever deployed vessel and her illustrious maritime career spanning over half a century. Following in her wake will be CMV’s new flagship, Amy Johnson followed by Magellan, Columbus, Astor and sisterships, Vasco da Gama and Ida Pfeiffer.

This unique maritime celebration and event will bring together over 8,000 cruise passengers onboard the fleet from four British, two German and one French home port to Rotterdam, Europe’s largest commercial cruise port, which has a rich maritime heritage and seafaring tradition.

The CMV ships will be arriving in Rotterdam between 0900-1000hrs, stay in port all day and depart early evening between 1700-1800hrs. Complimentary shuttle buses will operate between the ships to transport local residents and tourists alike to view the ships and join in the fun and celebrations, with quayside folkloric events planned. Special celebratory events are also planned in the city of Rotterdam with complimentary shuttle buses available for the passengers.
