Cruise & Maritime Voyages is a privately-owned British cruise line that has offered "no fly", "adult friendly" cruises from the UK for the last several years. The line's original oceangoing ship in Europe is Marco Polo, a former transatlantic liner of Baltic Shipping Lines that entered service in 1965 and was rebuilt as a cruise ship in the 1990s. Other CMV ships include Magellan, Astor, Astoria, and Columbus.

  • Nostalgia note: We crossed from Bremerhaven to Montreal on the Marco Polo, then named Alexandr Pushkin, in 1978. We were accompanied by our Old English Sheepdog, Muffin, and our Wire-Haired Fox Terrier, Yodel, who stayed in a large doghouse when they weren't enjoying the Sun Deck with the passengers and Soviet crew.

In 2017, Cruise & Maritime Voyages has an extensive calendar of cruises from London Tilbury and other British ports. European destinations include ports in the British Isles, Scandinavia, the Baltic, and Southern Europe.

The company also operates river cruises on the Danube, Rhine, Moselle, Rhône, and Saône.
