Rediscover the golden era of cruising with Cruise & Maritime Voyages

Sponsored by Cruise & Maritime Voyages

Ready for exceptional cruise value? There’s never been a better time to sell a traditional boutique cruise experience.

Whether enjoying a close to home short break or embarking on a grand voyage to more than 280 destinations, a holiday with Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) offers countless unforgettable experiences and all the comforts of home, and more.

It also gives your clients the chance to travel traditionally, with an intimate cruise experience that takes guests off the beaten path, to destinations usually only visited by premium and luxury lines like Ushuaia Argentina; the Faroe Islands; and Semarang, Indonesia.

Your clients will also experience the quaint intimacy of a smaller ship that only packs the essentials, including friendly service staff, a range of onboard facilities, and choice lounges, bars and restaurants; as well as the chance to dock in more ports and encounter fewer crowds.

Specialists in Australian cruising, extended voyages and Northern European cruises, CMV is preparing to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2019. The cruise company is inviting agents to enjoy a heap of benefits when booking, including:

  • Commission paid on full cruise fare, inclusive of fees, taxes and port charges
  • Ship tours and famil opportunities
  • Special travel agent cruise fares
  • Exceptional group benefits, including enhanced commission and free cabins
  • An experienced local sales and business development team
  • A local Australian reservations team; and
  • A local marketing support team.

To ensure you do not miss out on any of the above benefits, register as a CMV Agent Insider, here.

CMV also recently welcomed Vasco da Gama to its fleet, a 1,200-passenger ship able to nose into harbours off-limits to many other ships, cruising close to home and to exotic faraway lands. The ship complements the company’s portfolio of four other ships: Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria – capable of taking between 550 and 1,400 guests.

Each of the vessels offers a traditional cruse experience; there are no waterslides, rock-climbing walls or ziplines. Instead, agents can expect their clients to have attentive friendly service, a relaxed country-club ambiance and exceptional value for money.

CMV also offers options for solo travellers, with special programming and accommodation, as well as both multi-generational and adults-only ships.

Another neat feature of CMV for Australian travellers visiting overseas ports is that Vasco da Gama uses Australian currency; while Columbus, Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria use British Pounds on board.

So, what are you waiting for?

Prepare your clients to explore Australia and the world with like-minded, distinguished travellers aboard CMV’s classically styled, small to mid-sized ships.
