Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) has announced today (Tuesday 31 October) a new Fly/Cruise option to their forthcoming Cuba, Central America & Caribbean cruise.

Passengers can now fly British Airways from London Gatwick to Antigua on Saturday 11 November and join the cruise ship Columbus for 20 nights of the cruise, before flying back when the ship reaches Barbados. Fares from £1599pp based on an inner cabin, an ocean view starts from an extra £300pp.

Columbus is the latest ship to join the CMV fleet and visits include overnight in Havana, Cuba and calls at exciting ports in Mexico, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Aruba, Tobago and Grenada.

Passenger wishing to stay on board for the remaining part of the cruise (13 nights) after Barbados can sail back to London Tilbury and pay just £399pp extra for an inner cabin, and £499pp for an ocean view.

Offer goes on sale today at 16.00 until close of business Monday 6 November.

The fare quoted is based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin and includes delicious full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late night snacks, Captain’s Cocktail Party, complimentary tea & coffee 6am to midnight, big show entertainment, cabarets and classical interludes, daytime activities and leisure facilities, guest speaker and arts & crafts, porterage of luggage, port to cabin and port taxes. For greater convenience CMV operate an automatic tipping system on board, so instead of worrying how much and when to tip, an amount of £4pp per night will be debited to the passenger’s on board account. We will take care of your Cuban Visa for British Passport holders on board, which currently costs approximately £11.00pp.
