Astor’s future secured

Cruise and Maritime Voyages’ parent company, the Greek Global Maritime Group, has acquired the 1996-built cruise ship Astor from her bankrupt owners. The ship was operating for CMV during 2014 after that company took over Germany’s Transocean Cruises, together with the ship. Astor is currently undertaking a season of cruises from Australia and will return to Europe in the spring.

CMV seems to becoming something of a force in ex-UK cruising, and now has a fleet of four ships, although Astor still spends some time sailing for German passengers. The latest addition to the fleet, Magellan, previously Iberocruceros’ Grand Holiday, will begin sailing for the company in March.
