Bob McGowan, Head of Customer Services said: ‘We are thrilled that CMV has been ranked highly in two of the Cruisers’ Choice Awards. CMV is well known for an excellent standard of entertainment and the evening performance in the Show Lounge has been said to be worthy of the West End theatres. Themed cruises and celebrity guests add to the glittering CMV entertainment line up. The variety of Shore Excursions available is extensive; from kayaking in the Norwegian fjords through to a jungle trek in the Amazon and from a chance to stay at the Igloo Hotel through to discovering the Great Barrier Reef.’

Entertainment highlights for the 2016 season on board Astoria include the themed Easter Cruise featuring a cast of international entertainers, pop star Yazz, Comedian Tommy Cannon, Electric Light Orchestra pop legends Dave and Mandy Scptt-Morgan and BBC TV presenter Pam Rhodes.

Highlights of the Magellan Shore Excursions programme include the once in a lifetime excursions offered during Magellan’s Maiden Round the World Cruise such as visiting the paradise islands of French Polynesia, exploring all the must-do sights of Australia and New Zealand, the rainforests of Borneo, the vibrancy of Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Madras and Jordan with the chance to visit the lost city of Petra.
