Vasco da Gama

Cruise & Maritime Voyages' newest explorer.

Read more
Combining beautiful, contemporary décor with a more traditional cruising style, Vasco da Gama is the newest member of the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet.

Named after the Portuguese explorer and carrying 1,220 passengers, Vasco da Gama is on the smaller end of the scale when compared to the mega ships of today, yet she is still big enough to boast an array of exciting onboard entertainment and activities.

At the Waterfront, Waterfront Mediterranean and Waterfront Eurasia main restaurants, you are free to dine at your leisure, without the seating times that you are often restricted to onboard other ships. There are also two delightful specialty restaurants – The Grill and Chef’s Table, where you can enjoy a more intimate dining experience, or if it’s a casual bite you’re after, you can make your way to the Club Bistro.

On the entertainment front, Hollywood’s is the fabulous two-tiered show lounge where you can catch ‘big show’ entertainment with talented singers and dancers or even one of the special guest acts. With its panoramic seascapes, The Dome is a delightful venue to relax and watch the world sail by or to chat with fellow passengers, and at night, this is the place to be to dance the night away. By contrast, head to the Blue Room, the perfect venue to enjoy some musical entertainment after another wonderful day ashore or a nightcap before taking that final stroll on deck and retiring to the comfort of your cabin.

Vasco da Gama offers extensive deck areas and in keeping with her tradition, starboard and port side promenades with timber style decking. There are two swimming pools with the main top deck pool benefitting from a retractable roof so that you can relax in this stylish setting, whatever the weather. If you're feeling more active, then why not team up for a game of tennis or basketball. Be pampered at the well-appointed wellness centre with its beautiful spa amenities, make use of the hairdressing and beauty facilities, or work out in the well-equipped gym.

Setting sail for the first time in April 2019, Cruise & Maritime Voyages can’t wait to welcome you onboard Vasco da Gama.
