For the first-time next summer, Cruise & Maritime Voyages is to sail from Plymouth.
There will be a series of five itineraries that will sail from Plymouth on Marco Polo. The cruise fares will start from just £69pp for an overnight weekend from Plymouth to Portsmouth on 11 September.
Marco Polo is a smaller traditional-style cruise ship and is very popular with British cruise passengers with a high repeat level.
Other itineraries include:
- A six-night cruise around the Isle of Wight on 19 August before sailing along the Seine to Rouen
- A seven-night sailing visiting Antwerp, Rouen, Honfleur and Rotterdam
- 14-night Baltic itinerary which offers an overnight call into St Petersburg together with a transit of the Kiel Canal
Mike Hall, marketing director, said:
We are delighted to put Plymouth on our cruise map, for our first operating season in 2021. We appreciate that many of our passengers prefer to cruise from their own local port, so our focus on regionality is key. Passengers in the local area can take advantage of less travel time and the expense of having to journey further afield to start the holiday.
