CMV Astoria set sail on an 11-day “Treasures of the Sea of Cortez” cruise. Over the course of the voyage, the vessel will take passengers to 8 ports along the Sea of Cortez.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages arranged ground transportation out of Phoenix and Tucson to Rocky Point. Most of the guests are anticipated to be Arizonans as well as people from surrounding western states.
