To celebrate the ship being 222 days away from arriving in Australia, CMV is offering $222 of free on board credit.
The Vasco da Gama is the the latest addition to the fleet of Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), and last week set sail on her maiden voyage from Singapore to London Tilbury.
The ship will arrive in Sydney in December and its destinations in the region will include South Australia, Tasmania, the North West and Southeast Asia.
Vasco da Gama is the fifth ship in CMV’s fleet.
Managing Director of Cruise & Maritime Voyages Australia, Dean Brazier, is looking forward to having Vasco da Gama as CMV’s primary Australian ship during the summer months.
“The ship will offer an extended range of amenities and dining options on board, while retaining the intimate country-club feel that our guests know and love us for,” Mr Brazier says.
“With Vasco da Gama, we will become the first cruise line ever to visit Wallaroo, and our other maiden visits for us will include Kuri Bay, Broome, Portland, Phillip Island and Sandakan in Borneo.”
The ship is named after Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, famous for being the first European to reach India by sea.
The maiden voyage is fully booked with half of the guests on board travelling from Australia and New Zealand.
After spending summer in Europe, the Vasco da Gama will then set sail from London Tilbury on October 9 on a 53-night voyage to Australia, concluding in Sydney where it will cruise for the Australian summer season, home porting in Adelaide and Fremantle.
To celebrate the ship being 222 days away from arriving in Australia, CMV is offering $222 of free on board credit until May 6 in Oceanview cabins and above, on selected Vasco da Gama bookings. Discounts also apply on select cruises.
