Explore the world - from Bristol!

Have you cruised from Bristol? Our award-winning travel agent Joe Teixeira from Norad Travel Gloucester explains why you might want to consider it!

Sailing from Bristol, you’ll board a smaller, classic cruise ship, like the beautiful Magellan of Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV). These are designed to deliver an intimate, leisurely style of cruising, perfect for those who don't want to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of larger cruise lines. With CMV, there’s a great emphasis on providing excellent and personal, attentive service throughout your journey.

Perfectly packaged

Their special size also enables access to unique ports of call which larger ships are unable to reach. From witnessing inspirational landscapes in floral Guernsey to relaxing in tranquillity along the beautiful River Seine, panoramic vistas will slowly glide by on every voyage. One day you could be golfing in Gran Canaria, the next exploring fossil-studded cliffs and coves in Malta.

Sought-after destinations with exceptional value savings

Relax in the knowledge your accommodation, full board cuisine, afternoon teas, daytime activities, evening entertainment and full use of all the on-board leisure facilities are all included in the fare. And with a complimentary coach service from a local pick-up point escorting you right to your cruise, you can start your holiday before you even arrive.

For any extra treats, sterling is the on-board currency on most of CMV's ships - so no need to worry about exchange problems!

Right now, there’s also incredible savings on these high-quality cruises to some amazing destinations – including dramatic coastlines of Scotland, the sunny shores of the Canary Islands, and expeditions beneath the magical skies of Norway...
