Cruise & Maritime Voyages is a privately-owned British cruise line that has offered "no fly" cruises from the UK for the last three years. The line has two oceangoing ships in Europe:

  • 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. (We crossed from Bremerhaven to Montreal on the ship, 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).

  • Azores, a vintage ocean liner (originally the Stockholm of Swedish America Line) that was rebuilt in 2013. The ship carries 550 passengers in 277 cabins.

In 2015, Cruise & Maritime Voyages has an extensive calendar of cruises from London Tilbury, Newcastle, Leith, and Rosyth. 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.
