The CMV Travel & Leisure Group has announced the acquisition of Pacific Eden from P&O Cruises Australia.

Pacific Eden’s new name will be announced on March 20 and the vessel will join CMV’s expanding fleet with delivery in Singapore in early April 2019 followed by a short docking period to include livery change, re-brand and some preparatory works before she positions westbound to Northern Europe via the Suez on her inaugural voyage.

Continuing the explorer theme, four distinguished explorers have been shortlisted for the ship’s new name and the travel trade and Columbus Club Members will be invited to cast their vote.

The shortlist includes Vasco da Gama, Pytheas, Henry Hudson and Amerigo Vespucci.   

The new ship will be deployed and dedicated to both the German and Australasian cruise markets. During the northern summer (May-October) the ship will operate under CMV’s German brand, TransOcean Kreuzfahrten, homeporting from both Bremerhaven and Kiel and during the Australian summer season (December-March) from Fremantle (Perth) and Adelaide offering a more traditional scenic cruise experience.

CMV’s UK, North American and wider global markets will also be marketing the voyages between Europe and the Antipodes and the wider Australian season.
