Review of Astoria

MV Azores was originally built as the Stockholm and launched for Swedish America Line on September 9, 1946. At the time she was the largest Swedish passenger ship, best known for a collision in 1956 which resulted in sinking of Andrea Doria ship.

NEWS: The shipowner Grand Circle Corporation announced that the cruise vessel leaves CMV's fleet in the end of 2018.

History - construction & ownership

The 16,144-ton, 556-passenger cruise ship Astoria  was built in 1948 and is operated by Portuscale Cruises. The first name of the vessel was Stockholm and was constructed by Götaverken in Gothenburg for the Swedish America Line (SAL). The Portuguese cruise ship was in the fleet of Classic International Cruises, sailing under the name Athena until 2012 when it was acquired by Portuscale Cruises (2013).

CMV Astoria cruise ship

Over time, the vessel sailed under many different names - Völkerfreundschaft, Volker, Fridtjof Nansen, Italia I, Italia Prima, Valtur Prima and Caribe and became famous as Stockholm because of its collision with Andrea Doria in 1956. The latter vessel sadly sank because it was seriously damaged. The collision of the two ships became one of the most notorious maritime disasters in history.

Stockholm (Azores), with her 525 feet (160.02 m) was at the time known to be the smallest passenger vessel sailing on the North Atlantic route. A curious fact about the cruise ship is that she was the largest passenger ship constructed in Sweden. In the beginning, Azores was planned to sail with 395 passengers, but the capacity was increased to 548 after a refit.

MV Azores entered service for CMV in 2015, under long-term charter from Portuscale Cruises (Portuguese cruise ship line), and is aimed at the English speaking cruise market. The vessel is “adult only” (child-free) for passengers 16-years plus. Cruise & Maritime Voyages announced that after its 2015 summer season, the cruise ship will be renamed to “Astoria”.

In July 2016, CMV announced that the ship leaves the fleet in 2018. Following the spring 2017 season for CMV (Tilbury roundtrips March 9 through April 27, 2017), the ship was chartered for 1 year by the French company Rivages du Monde.

All CMV 2017 bookings were “buy one get one free” cruise deals - if booked by the end of July 2016. On 2017 bookings made by August 31, 2016, were offered free or half-priced car parking at Port Tilbury, plus free cabin upgrades and up to GBP 1000 in onboard credit.

Cruise itinerary program

MV Astoria itinerary program is based on cruises departing from UK ports to European destinations, such as the Mediterranean, Iberia (Portugal and Spain), British Isles, Norwegian Fjords, Iceland. Departures are roundtrip from England (Hull and Tilbury-London).

  • During its last CMV (2-month 2016) season, the ship operated on roundtrips from Bristol (Avonmouth), following the winter docking in Greece. On March 11, the ship sailed up to Avonmouth. On March 21 started a 7-night "Scottish Islands and Emerald Isle" itinerary. On March 28 started a 15-night itinerary "Azores, Madeira and Portugal", visiting LeixoesLisbon, La Coruna and two Azores Islands.

Cabins

CMV places a high priority on the comfort of its guests and Astoria offers a wide variety of well appointed, comfortable cabins which are graded according to size, facilities and position within the ship, and designed to suit all tastes and budgets. Each of the 277 cabins is air conditioned and has private en-suite facilities, such as marble floored bathrooms with a bath and shower, ample wardrobe and storage space. The staterooms also have music channels and a TV for in-house movies and information channels, fridge with a mini bar, a hairdryer, and a personal safe. The owner’s presidential suite, junior and balcony suites and also have a jacuzzi and a seating area.

Dining options - Food & Drinks

The Olissipo Restaurant offers sumptuous meals served by Astoria's attentive restaurant staff. Dining is always a special event on board and passengers will experience high levels of gastronomic delight. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Olissipo or alternatively in the Lotus Buffet which also provides the choice to eat "al fresco" on the Pool Deck.

Entertainment options - Fun & Sport

Astoria offers traditional maritime experience in comfortable surroundings. Discover a wide range of cosy lounges and stylish leisure facilities. On sea days passengers may join a craft session, listen to one of CMV informative guest speakers, work off a few pounds in the gym or relax with a good book. The Calypso Show Lounge is the evening spot for cabaret performances, a show of song and dance or guest acts.  For the night owls, there is dancing in the Night Club.
