CMV cruises changes itineraries due to ongoing Hong Kong political unrest

Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) is introducing a number of revised itineraries in 2021 for their classic ship Marco Polo following passenger concerns over visiting Hong Kong.

Marco Polo will now sail on a 42-night cruise to the Amazon departing from Bristol Avonmouth 5 January 2021.

New cruise offers are now available to search for the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis, one of nature’s most wonderful sights, in February and March 2021. Cruising from London Tilbury either 18 February or 5 March Marco Polo spends 15 nights cruising along Norway’s remarkable coastline.

Another alternative to search for the Northern Lights is on 20 March sailing from London Tilbury for 12 nights to Iceland staying on board overnight in Reykjavik while also visiting the Faroes, Orkneys and Shetland Islands.

Commenting, Marketing Director, Mike Hall said “The current situation in Hong Kong has adversely affected sales of the 110 night Oriental Odyssey Cruise and two shorter Hong Kong fly cruise sectors where we had planned to fill half of the ship’s capacity.

“We do not know what the situation will be in Hong Kong next year so we have decided to amend the programme of this much loved ship now. Passengers will be delighted to see among the new itineraries an Amazon cruise. A popular itinerary with our regular cruisers.”
