Astor, the 20,606 gross ton cruise ship that has spent Austral summers with Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) in Australia and Boreal ones with Transocean Kreuzfahrten in Germany, will remain on the German market year round from the spring of next year.
Information on the Transocean website shows that the ship will start cruising from German ports 24 April 2019 following its final season in Australia. In the winter of 2019-20, the ship will offer a 122 night cruise around the world from Hamburg.
Vasco da Gama, the former Pacific Eden of P&O Cruises Australia that will enter service with CMV in the spring of next year, will split the year between seasons in Australia and Germany once it enters service with the UK based CMV. Transocean is part of the CMV group.
