Cruise into or out of Australia on a Cruise & Maritime Voyages repositioning cruise.  These cruises range from 20 to 80 nights and take you as far as (or from) Europe!


As part of her world voyages, Columbus navigates the culturally diverse region of Asia, featuring stops in iconic cities including those in Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia and India.


Being a European-owned cruise line, Cruise & Maritime Voyages have a number of itineraries that explore the diverse region.  Cruise & Maritime Voyages have an extensive range of options when it comes to cruising Northern Europe and the Western coast of mainland Europe.  Cruises depart from a range of locations with the most popular being Tilbury for London and Amsterdam and Rotterdam on the mainland, however there are a number of cruises departing from other ports in England and Scotland.

When looking at itineraries in Northern and Western Europe, cruises up to 7 nights tend to explore ports in the UK or west coast of France, while cruises up to 21 nights can integrate Norway and even Iceland into their itineraries.   Some itinerary options include visits to the Baltics and St Petersburg, cruises around the British Isles, cruises to the French River Seine or explorations of the Fjords of Norway and stark landscapes of Iceland.

World Cruising

Columbus operates one world cruise each year with departures from either Tilbury (for London) or Amsterdam in January.  Visit our world cruises page for more information on upcoming Cruise & Maritime Voyages world cruises or contact us.

Vasco da Gama

Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) offer a more traditional and leisurely ‘country house’ style of cruising and maritime experience aboard their classic-style cruise ships.  They have an emphasis on providing attentive service within a friendly ‘home from home’, traditional British atmosphere. CMV’s small to mid-size ships are accessible to more ports of call than the larger resort ships, meaning they are able to offer some truly innovative itineraries. Three of their ships are also ‘child free’ – Magellan, Marco Polo and Astoria – meaning you are able to enjoy the pleasures of cruising in the company of adult passengers only.

CMV spends the majority of the year cruising out of a variety of ports in the UK, offering a great tack on cruise option for those embarking on a European cruise holiday.  If you would like to try CMV’s cruising experience closer to home however, they also offer a limited Australian season throughout our summer.

As a testament to their service standards, CMV are proud to boast that 95% of their clients have awarded their cruise with a ‘good’ or ‘excellent’ satisfaction rating, and they also have a repeat passenger rate of 40%.
