Cruise and Maritime Voyages announced that line's 600-passenger ship Astor would return to Australia for her fourth season from 2016 October through March 2017.

The company also announced that following Astor’s success in 2015 with London to Fremantle 53-day cruise via Panama, which had been sold out in 9 weeks, the vessel would once more sail out of London to Fremantle in 2016, via Panama Canal.

On October 16, 2016 the ship will depart Tilbury, calling at Antigua, St. Lucia and Bridgetown, before transiting the Panama Canal.  She will then visit Acapulco, Papeete, Nuku Hiva, Auckland and Moorea before arriving in Sydney.

The voyage will then continue to Kangaroo Island and Adelaide before reaching ship's home port, Fremantle, 53 days after departing from London, on December 9.

Early booking fares, available until the end of October, promote savings of up to 40%. A 10% past passenger reduction is also available.
