CMV announces epic voyages from Liverpool in 2016

Liverpool Cruise terminal is delighted to announce that in 2016 Cruise & Maritime Voyages plan to operate their traditional and elegant cruise ship Marco Polo on five different dates. The programme offers an epic voyage for 28 nights to Canada, the Norwegian fjords, Iceland & Northern Isles, a mini-cruise to Dublin and the Canary Islands and Madeira.

Mike Hall, CMV’s Head of Marketing said:

“We were the first cruise line, back in May 2012, to offer turnaround cruising from the revitalized Liverpool Cruise Terminal. That day remains one of the most memorable experiences in my career. Since then the people of Liverpool and in the North West have demonstrated that they prefer travelling from closer to home, rather than go on lengthy journeys south to join a ship.”

“We have launched a ‘Buy one get one free – BOGOF’ campaign for 2016 with the release of our latest brochure. It includes a selection of cruises from Liverpool. Among the selection is a voyage to Canada mirroring the golden days of transatlantic liners. Our research also tells us that our customers like to benefit from a great value deal by booking early. This current campaign ends on 31st July 2015.”
