On August 28, 2021, CMV's 7-ship fleet gathers in Port Rotterdam (Holland) during the annual (port's 25th) Rotterdam Regatta. In both directions (up and down Maas River), the seven CMV ships will navigate in convoy for approx 32 mi (52 km).
The fleet parade will be led by Marco Polo (CMV's 1st vessel), followed by Amy Johnson (Pacific Dawn), Magellan, Columbus (Pacific Pearl), Astor, Vasco da Gama (Pacific Eden) and Ida Pfeiffer (now Pacific Aria). The 7 boats will be carrying 8000+ cruise tourists. They will arrive in Port Rotterdam in the morning, stay all day and depart in early-evening.
The cruise port will provide complimentary shuttle bus services between the ships and downtown Rotterdam. Live entertainment events (folkloric performances) are planned dockside.
