Last-Minute Cargo-Passenger Ship Opportunity Taken Up: Owners Cabin From London Tilbury to Sydney in May 2012 Now Booked


Three ships run in cargo-passenger service from Tilbury to the US East Coast, the Pacific islands of Tahiti, Fiji and New Caledonia and on to Australia. A twin Owners cabin and two double cabins are offered on each of the CMA CGM Manet, CMA CGM Matisse and CMA CGM Utrillo from Tilbury, Rotterdam, Dunkirk and Le Havre to Australia. Each carries six passengers but they are all fully booked through to 2013 so bookings have to be made a year or more in advance.

However, due to a cancellation, the Owners Cabin is once again available on board the CMA CGM Matisse from Tilbury, with departure on or about May 18, 2012. But book it now if you want it as it won’t be available for long.

The fare is €4,730 (£4,095) per person including full board, port charges and complimentary French wine with lunch and dinner. Sole occupancy of the same cabin is €5,160 (£4,465). Non-US and Canadian citizens will need full US visas as cargo ships are not included in the various visa waiver programs (also known as ESTA).

The Owners Cabin has twin beds and its own door into the Passenger Lounge. Common areas include a Gymnasium and Library on Deck B, Passenger Lounge on Deck E with TV, video, DVD and indoor Swimming Pool.

Port rotation for this voyage is Tilbury – Rotterdam – Dunkirk – Le Havre – New York – Savannah – Kingston (Jamaica) – Manzanillo (Panama) – Panama Canal – Papeete (Tahiti) – Lautoka (Fiji) – Noumea (New Caledonia) – Sydney.
