In early February 2020 Cruise & Maritime Voyages announces the maiden voyage of their latest ship, Amy Johnson.

Following her delivery and a refurbishment programme, Amy Johnson sails from Singapore on 15 April 2021 on a 43-night cruise through Asia, the Middle East, transiting the Suez Canal, before visiting exciting ports in Europe on the way to London Tilbury. The ship will be adult only.

Announcing Amy Johnson’s Maiden Voyage and her 2021 programme, CMV’s Marketing Director, Mike Hall said:

‘Amy Johnson will be the flagship of the CMV fleet. A real step up for us whilst still maintaining our key brand values of a more traditional style of cruising and maritime experience. CMV passengers and our trade industry partners will welcome the similar style on board to Columbus and Vasco da Gama. Amy Johnson’s maiden voyage will be an epic adventure in the spirit of her pioneering namesake.’

Inaugural guests will fly from London overnight to join the ship in Singapore. The maiden voyage includes ports in Malaysia, then to India, visiting Egypt and a chance to see Luxor and Jordan.

From the Suez Canal, there is the opportunity to explore Cairo followed by other interesting and ancient sites in Greece and Italy.

The South of France, Southern Spain plus Portugal’s Lisbon and Oporto are towards the end of the journey with La Coruna and Amsterdam the final calls on the way to London Tilbury.

Cruises in Amy Johnson’s inaugural season include a cultural odyssey sailing from London-Tilbury on 9 October 2021 cruising the Black Sea and the Mediterranean.
