    On completion of her summer 2015 season, Azores will be re-named Astoria in line with our smaller ship offering alongside the similarly named 600 passenger Astor. This is in contrast to our larger mid-sized vessels; the Marco Polo and Magellan, adopting the explorer theme. In March 2016, Astoria will operate a two month spring season sailing from Bristol Avonmouth prior to the start of her summer season of cruising operating on the French market.

    The Bellejour is a premium river cruise vessel and inviting wellness area. The spacious Bellejour offers particularly impressive river panoramas of the Rhine for your enjoyment. However, the light-filled cabins and covered walkways are not the only benefits that the ship has to offer. This delightful river cruise ship plays its trump card everywhere, with a beautiful wellness area, the culinary delicacies in its restaurant or on board the extensive sun deck: harmony for all the senses.

    At 63,786grt, with a draft of 8.20 metres and overall length of nearly 250 metres, Columbus was purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising and we believe is ideally suited to the type of exciting scenic cruise programme we operate. She underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and will be upgraded further in April 2017 before the start of her maiden CMV season.

    Columbus has 775 passenger cabins including 64 de luxe balcony cabins and junior suites which will please many of our customers who have been asking for more balcony accommodation. Following the successful trial on board Magellan, and recognising the needs of single travellers, 150 cabins will be allocated for solos.

Completing the quintet is Scott’s Bar, located on Amundsen Deck, an ideal spot for night owls.

    At 46,052grt she will carry about 1250 passengers accommodated in 726 cabins spanning nine passenger decks serviced by eight lifts. Her wide corridors and stairways and expansive deck areas with wood type decking in many areas exude a real feeling of spaciousness with a wide range of comfortable well appointed lounges and panoramic seating and observation areas ideally suited to our scenic cruise programme.

    Combining expansive, comfortable surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment
    and delicious cuisine, Magellan is the perfect choice for those looking for a greater range of on board facilities. However, she still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the ‘mega’ resort style ships built today. No climbing walls or ice-skating rinks and no kids!

    Magellan has two beautifully appointed dining rooms; the Waldorf and Kensington Restaurants and the more informal bistro for casual dining. The magnificent tiered main show lounge spans the height of two decks and affords wonderful viewing opportunities complemented by a host of superb lounge bars and public areas.
