On 21st March 2016, I’ll be boarding a familiar ship, disguised by a new name, in Bristol’s Avonmouth. I’ll spend 7-nights onboard Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ Astoria, currently known as Azores. I previously spent 2-nights onboard the ship for a short sailing from Liverpool to Bristol.
Launched in 1948, Astoria is the world’s oldest cruise ship still in service today. She is famed for sinking the Andrea Doria in 1956, when she was known as Stockholm. Astoria is a classic ocean-going liner, filled with lots of charm and character.
I’ll be live-tweeting throughout the cruise using #CConboard, sharing photos and impressions of the ship, as well as daily reviews from the ship and the destinations along the way.
