With the recent announcement of their acquisition of a new flagship- in the shape of the 46,000 ton Magellan- Cruise and Maritime Voyages has been shuffling the deck chairs with regard to their 2015 itineraries.

For the first time ever, the line is offering a short season of dedicated, Mediterranean fly-cruises during the autumn, using the intimate, 550 passenger Azores. The 16,000 ton ship, chartered from Portuscale Cruises, will offer a series of five fly cruises, inclusive of one voyage that embarks in Bristol and ends with a flight from Genoa to the UK.
