Connections to and from Singapore are now made by four 5-passenger ships of the Hanjin Asia class
Now that so many European container services sail to Malaysian ports such as Port Kelang and Tanjung Telepas, there is only one regular cargo-passenger service left between Europe and Singapore.
These fast express voyages are now available on a 63-day round trip (speeded up from 77 days) from Hamburg, Rotterdam and Algeciras to Singapore and China. The voyage from Algeciras to Singapore takes only 18 days. In the reverse direction, a fast and frequent 22-day cargo-passenger service is available from Singapore to Hamburg.Calls after Singapore are made at Yantian, Pusan, Shanghai and back to Yantian and Singapore again.
These particular cargo-passenger services are offered by four Peter Doehle-owned ships on the Hanjin route (Hanjin Africa, Hanjin Asia, Hanjin Blue Ocean and Hanjin Harmony), with bookings by Frachtschiff-Touristik Kapt Peter Zylmann. Each of the 2012-built ships has one Double Owners cabin and three single cabins.

Following the 2017 Word Cruise planned by its 1,250-berth Magellan this winter, CMV will upgrade its World Cruise ship in 2018 to the 1,550-berth Columbus, which it is acquiring from P&O Cruises Australia. This vessel was launched as Sitmar Cruises’ Fair Majesty in 1988 before becoming Princess Cruises’ Star Princess in 1989 and P&O Cruises’ UK-based Arcadia (ii) in 1997-98. Before heading for the P&O Australia fleet as Pacific Pearl in 2010 she traded for a time in the Mediterrean as the Ocean Village. As P&O’s Arcadia, this ship served as the replacement for the longstanding P&O flagship Canberra and is back once again to trade in the UK Market. Meanwhile, in Russia, plans are unveiled for a new 310-berth PV300VD class Sea and River cruise ship.

A last-minute round voyage has been announced by NSB for its 68,800-ton m.v. Buxcoast, a vessel equipped with an Owners Cabin, Double Cabin and Single Cabin. Fares start at €90 per person per day double and €85 per day single (a negative single supplement!) plus port charges, deviation insurance and booking fee. Single occupancy of a double cabin is €105 per day.
Dine with the officers in a ship equipped with a passenger lounge, indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness room. Intending passengers who are not US or Canadian citizens require a full US B1/B2 Visa to enter the United States this way as cargo ships are not party to the various visa waiver schemes. Act now in order to secure space.

The latest news from CMA CGM brings good tidings for those looking for a single voyage round the world. Round-the-world voyages will now be available from Houston, Mobile, Miami and Jacksonville, which has not been available since Rickmers stopped carrying passengers through the Suez Canal in 2011.
Because of a change in the way the Pacific Express 3 Line is operated we can now offer the service as a full 77-day Round-the-World freighter cruise from four US ports as well as Singapore or Hong Kong. Ships in this line have been trading both ways via Panama but will now return to Asia via the Cape of Good Hope, with a call at Durban on the way to Singapore and Hong Kong. The transit time from Jacksonville to Durban is 22 days, while Durban to Singapore is 14 days.
The full round-the-world voyage takes 77 days and seven passenger-friendly ships on the run means an average frequency of about every 11 days. The fare for the full 77-day circumnavigation is €8,470 per person double occupancy or single, or €9,240-10,010 for sole use of a double cabin (depending which ship). Sample one-way fares are Miami to Durban in 25 days at €2,7500 (€3,000-3,250 single), Hong Kong to Houston in 29 days at €3,190 (€3,480-3,770 single) or Houston to Singapore in 44 days at €4,400 (€5,280-5,720 single).
Passengers are carried in seven of the eleven ships employed in this service as follows: m/v’s CMA CGM Alcazar and CMA CGM Chateau d’If (1 Owners and 1 Single, maximum 3 passengers), CMA CGM Virginia (3 Double cabins, swimming pool, maximum 6 passengers) and the CMA CGM Blue Whale, CMA CGM Florida, CMA CGM Georgia and CMA CGM Tarpon (3 Single cabins, swimming pool, maximum 3 passengers).
The full itinerary is Houston – Mobile – Miami – Jacksonville – Durban – Singapore – Hong Kong – Chiwan, China – Shanghai, China – Ningbo, China – Pusan, South Korea – Houston.
