No more Astoria
CRUISE & Maritime Voyages (CMV) has revealed it will not be renewing the charter contract for Astoria, with the ship set to retire towards the end of this year after her farewell season.
CMV Australia is offering up to 65% off Astoria’s final sailings, including the nine-night Autumn Fjordland voyage, scheduled to depart 09 Oct, with the price now $1,169pp, down from $2,339.
Sale fares for Sep and Oct departures are valid until 30 Jan.
“Although we will be sad to say farewell to Astoria, we are excited at the prospect of Pacific Dawn (to be renamed) joining the fleet in 2021,” said Group Commercial Director Chris Coates.
MEANWHILE, the cruise line will restructure its sales team in Australia and New Zealand, with Damien Wolff and Greg Morris to join over the next two months as Business Development Managers (for South Australia and Queensland, respectively).
