The Astoria is a more intimate, cosy ship, and a contrast to the last cruise we did on the larger Magellan & Marco Polo. The Astoria even has its own small Chapel and we are grateful that Cruise and Maritime Voyages continue to offer a Christian Cruise as part of their commercial operation.

I hope to welcome you aboard!
