Special discounts on cruises are being offered to customers affected by the collapse of Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery owner All Leisure Group.

Cruise and Maritime Voyages is making price cuts of up to 10% available to those affected by the failure of the company.

The offer, which also includes a £50 per person low deposit, is being made for a limited time, until January 16.

Customers are being a offered a 5% discount on inside category cabins and 10% on ocean view cabins on CMV’s current saver fares which already carry discounts of up to 50% on sailings in 2017-18.

Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery had 7,000 forward bookings with 13,000 passengers affected by the failure of All Leisure Group

Those with forward bookings for flight and cruise packages will be able to make claims to the Civil Aviation Authority for full refunds.

Approximately a third of the future bookings are UK departing cruises that are financially protected by Abta.

CMV is advising agents that there is some availability across its winter and summer 2017 cruise programmes. CMV operates small to mid-sized ships providing a traditional British cruise experience from 11 UK departure ports.  

“Some of CMV’s ex-UK sailings closely match both the Minerva Swan Hellenic and Voyager Voyages of Discovery brand cruises and we also have availability on Magellan’s Far East, Asia and Indian Ocean World Cruise sectors between February and April 17,” a spokesman said.
