Cruise & Maritime Voyages offers a range of multi-generational cruises for families to enjoy, with no age restrictions and during the school holidays. These cruises enable the whole family to enjoy quality time together, though there aren’t any children-specific activities available on-board.
Both Marco Polo and Astoria operate as adult-only ships, where the minimum age is 16 years, though they must be accompanied by adult passengers.
During days on-board your Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ ship you can choose from a range of activities to keep you occupied. Visit the gym for a fitness workout, enjoy a make-over in the beauty salon, or take a relaxing dip in the pool. Why not head to the spa for a spot of ‘me time’ and indulge in a soothing treatment or two.
Enjoy learning a new craft or skill from one of the specialist speakers on-board, experts in their own areas. You can also enjoy bingo, knitting, Jakkolo and retail therapy in the duty-free shops on-board.
With a range of delicious meals freshly prepared by expert chefs, you are certain to enjoy a dining experience like no other with Cruise & Maritime Voyages.

Speciality dining varies by ship, where venues feature a more intimate setting with even more dining options – perfect for that special occasion or just a holiday treat! There is a supplementary charge for dining in these venues and you may need to reserve beforehand. Just some of the speciality restaurants include Fusion, offering Indian dishes; The Grill, for a choice of prime cuts; and Commodore’s Salon, for Mediterranean cuisine.
