In late November/early December 2016, Magellan & Marco Polo were in the port of Amsterdam as part of their routine annual docking. This was to prepare the vessels for the new season.
Mike Hall, Head of Marketing at CMV said “Magellan was completed ready for her Christmas Markets cruise on 6 December from Tilbury which has been on waitlist now for sometime”. Meanwhile, Marco Polo sailed back to Bristol in time for her on board Festive Celebration Events and Christmas cruise which is also on waitlist.

Both these CMV ships have many loyal followers and as a result our overall 2017 programme is now more than 70% sold. So, if you haven’t booked your cruise for next year, now is the time to do so.”

Malcolm says: These are ‘real ships’ which are being lovingly maintained. Well done CMV.
