In late November 2019, Cruise & Maritime Voyages announced the expansion of their ocean fleet, with the acquisition of two new ships formerly part of the P&O Australia fleet. During dry dock, the ships will be increasing capacity to 9000 berths and passenger capacity will be growing by 30%.
In keeping with CMV tradition of naming their ships after explorers, she will be named after the famous Amy Johnson, who was a pioneering English pilot who was the first woman to fly solo from London to Australia. Flying solo she set many long-distance records during the 1930s.
Amy Johnson’s maiden voyage will be a huge 44 night Asia cruise departing from Singapore on 13th April 2021. This long haul Asia cruise will be highlighted with ports of call such as India, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Greece and Italy. Over the total 44 nights, there will be plenty of days at sea giving you the opportunity to really experience the ship.

At lunchtimes, when the weather is fine, the Alfresco Grill adds more choice. They will also have speciality restaurants for you to choose from including The Fusion, Grill and Chef’s Table which present truly intimate and delightful settings and outstanding classic menus.
Amy Johnson will have a total of 11 different lounges and bars including Raffles Bar, The Orient, Dome Observatory, Ocean Bar and Taverner’s Pub, so there’s a wide choice of contrasting venues to choose from at any time of day.
