The md of Cruise & Maritime Voyages Australia, Dean Brazier, told Seatrade Cruise News his new head office in Wayville, an inner-southern suburb of Adelaide, is up and running.

As reported here last month, Brazier, who took up his appointment in August, decided to close the Sydney office and move it to Adelaide, a major port for the Fremantle-based Astor which arrives Friday for her fifth 2017/18 season in Australia.

On February 12, 2018, the 600-passenger Astor departs Fremantle to cross the Great Australian Bight to Adelaide via Esperance. On February 17 she makes an eight-night round cruise from Adelaide to Melbourne and the Tasmanian ports of Burnie and Hobart.

On February 25 she makes a three-night round ‘Coastal Experience' cruise from Adelaide to Port Lincoln and Kangaroo Island and on February 28 she makes a seven-night round cruise to Port Arthur, Hobart (where she will overnight) and Burnie.

On March 7 she returns to Fremantle via Albany for her 39-night repositioning voyage to Tilbury via South Africa, departing March 12.

CMV Australia has moved to Level 1, 10 Greenhill Road, Wayville, South Australia 5034. The telephone number is 1300 307 934. The website is www.cmvaustralia.com.
