Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is a passenger shipping company headquartered in Essex, United Kingdom.[1][2][3]

History

Cruise & Maritime Voyages was formed in 2009, by parent organisation Cruise & Maritime Services International, after their German based Transocean Tours (for whom they were the UK representative) filed for bankruptcy.[4]

Cruise & Maritime Voyages has positioned itself as "Providing ex-UK 'no fly' cruising holidays aboard smaller and medium sized classic and more traditional style ships".[5] Cruise & Maritime Voyages serves an adult market, with an onboard style of traditional entertainment, dining and rooms using a fleet of older tonnage.[6]
