Astor’s return voyage to Australia a sell-out

Astor’s return voyage to Australia a sell-out
99% of cabins aboard Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ 620-passenger Astor were sold before she left Tilbury on her 54-night sailing to Fremantle.

Astor, under the command of Captain Emmanouil Psarrakis who has brought the 20,606gt ship to Australia for her three previous extended local summer seasons, arrives in her homeport of Fremantle on December 9.

Following the success of her 2015 voyage from London to Fremantle via the Panama Canal which sold out in nine weeks, Astor is heading for the Panama Canal again and then Mexico, French Polynesia, Auckland, Sydney, Adelaide and Kangaroo Island.

Highlights of her fourth season Down Under will be two relocation cruises from Fremantle to Adelaide, departing February 19, 2017 and Adelaide to Fremantle, departing March 9. During that time she will operate three round voyages from Adelaide.

She will depart Fremantle on March 15 on her 39-night repositioning voyage to the UK.
