Following the great success of many guest acts from the field of comedy Cruise & Maritime Voyages are launching ‘A Laugh on the Ocean Waves’ where, on selected cruises, you are invited to enjoy the talents of one of their guest comedians. Laughter is the best medicine so enjoy the talents of their comedy acts with their dedicated evening shows, hear them talk about their life experience and listen to their Comedy Corner interviews with the Cruise Director.


Cruise & Maritime Voyages operate an automatic tipping system whereby an amount of £5 per person per night, which will be distributed to your cabin stewards and restaurant personnel, will be debited to your shipboard account daily. For cruises greater than 16 nights, the amount is £4 per person per night. On the last day of your cruise, you will have the opportunity to adjust the amount to be charged to your account in order to reflect the level of your satisfaction. This can be done by contacting the Reception Desk.
