UK-based cruise operator Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) has announced the sub-charter of the 550 passenger cruise ship Azores from summer 2016 onwards to Rivages du Monde, the Paris-based specialist cruise and tour operator.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages also said that Azores will be re-named Astoria when it completes its UK summer 2015 season. Prior to the start of the 2016 French North European, Adriatic and Mediterranean summer season, Astoria will operate a two-month UK-based spring season.

In 2016 Astoria will commence its French business on May 11 under the Rivages du Monde brand as a home market product operating 14 North European, Greenland, Adriatic and Mediterranean sailings from Le Havre, Dunkirk, Ostend, Bordeaux and Marseille.

CMV’s summer 2016 program goes on sale next month.
