Originally built as a trans-Atlantic ship in 1948 named Stockholm, Cruise & Maritime Voyages' Astoria (nee Azores) has been stripped bare and re-constructed. After a $150 million restoration project, the ship started sailing from Bristol in 2015 to the Caribbean.

Replacing Discovery as CMV's second UK-based vessel, the 550-passenger Astoria will be in the same fleet as Marco Polo and Magellan.
The adults-only ship is in an Art Deco style. The 277 cabins are minimalist in design; 85 percent have an ocean view.
Onboard facilities include a sauna and steam room, hairdressers, a health and beauty centre and a treatment room for facials and massages. Other onboard features include guest speakers and arts and crafts events.
