This year, experience both a passenger-carrying container ship and a cruise ship on your voyage from Europe to Australia and spend six days in between (November 16-22) in Malaysia or Singapore under your own arrangements. Your first ship is CMA CGM’s 10-passenger container ship CMA CGM Magellan (left), where we have double cabins available for the 37-night voyage leaving Rotterdam on October 8 for Port Kelang (for Kuala Lumpur).
Passengers dine together with the officers and are allowed to visit the bridge. The 150,269-ton UK-flag CMA CGM Magellan was built in 2010 and is equipped with a passenger lounge, indoor swimming pool and gym with rowing machine, home trainer, darts and ping ping table. The spacious cabins are en suite and equipped with two or three windows, a sofa, easy chair, coffee table, office desk and chair and refrigerator. And in the ship’s dining room, table wine is included with lunch and dinner.
Dates with cargo ships are always subject to change but the itinerary is planned as follows:
Date Port Times
16-Oct-15 Le Havre
29-Oct-15 Jeddah (no shore leave)
16-Nov-15 Arrives Port Kelang
Fares for 37 Nights Rotterdam to Port Kelang (including port charges)
Outside €3,700 (about £2,740) per person double, €4,070 (about £3,015) single. Note: Embarkation is also possible at Hamburg, Antwerp or Le Havre, with pro rata reduction in fare.
Passengers taking advantage of these two connecting sailings are responsible for their own land arrangements in Malaysia and Singapore. Then six days after arriving in Port Kelang, it is time to catch Star Cruises’ once-only sailing of the 75,338-ton 1,870-passenger SuperStar Virgo (right) for onward connection to Sydney. She is due to arrive there on the morning of Wednesday, December 9, well in time for Christmas. As a bonus, there is also a choice of a drinks package or a dining package on the SuperStar Virgo .voyage between Singapore and Sydney.
