CMV reports success for new 2015 brochure

CMV reports success for new 2015 brochure
Cruise & Maritime Voyages reports its busiest and most successful booking week last week, following the launch of a new brochure for 2015, including new fleet addition Azores.

The UK-based cruise operator has recorded sales of 25% of 2015 capacity.

Lisa Jacobs, head of retail sales at CMV said, ‘launching our new programme on July 1 has proved a winning formula for us. Agents have welcomed the ‘Buy One Get One Free’ offer on early booking deals and feedback tell us that their customers are trading up and this is reflected in the bookings we have confirmed.’

Top sellers, to date, are the Marco Polo 50th Anniversary cruise next July which is now 80% sold, and the new Solar Eclipse & Northern Lights cruise of Azores is 65% sold, she added.

Many of the popular regular itineraries particularly Round Britain and Baltic cruises are already booked up on many cabin grade categories, CMV confirmed.

The CMV ‘Buy One Get One Free’ campaign continues until August 31, 2014 subject to availability.

CMV’s 2015 brochure includes over 50 sailings through until October 2015.
