    Luxury cruisers urged to use agentsAustralians have much to gainfrom the services of Virtuoso,

    an elite group of travel advisors. LUXURY travel network Virtuoso has

    appealed to Australian travellers to work with

    its 'in-the-know travel advisors' when planning

    a holiday involving a cruise.

    Speaking with Cruise Weekly, Albert Herrera,

    senior vice president, global product

    partnerships, said: Each trip from Australia is

    a long trip, so a cruise is always combined withsomething else, such as a rail adventure, a

    beach resort or an extended stay in a villa.

    The experiences we curate are truly best

    handled by a knowledgeable advisor, especially

    for the savvy cruiser looking for something

    unique, something special.

    Herrara said the main trends in luxury

    cruising were a growth in river cruising,

    particularly experiential cruises, such as the

    Amazon, extended families booking adjoining

    staterooms and earlier bookings to secure

    preferred suites.

    The company is set to launch a newparticipative website that connects travellers

    with the most relevant local advisor.

    It will be a collaborative tool that allows

    people to look through our product catalogue

    and then look through our advisor catalogue to

    see who matches what they want, Herrara said.

    Because it can be as much fun to plan a trip

    as to take one, people like to engage with

    someone, talk about their aspirations and

    work together to come up with the best

    possible personalised holiday.

    Meanwhile, in a survey of Australia-based

    travel advisors, Myanmar was named 2013's

    must-see destination, followed by South

    America, Morocco and Bhutan.

    Virtuoso's network comprises more than

    7,200 travel specialists, including 31 member

    agencies in Australia and New Zealand, who

    work closely with luxury lines such as

    Seabourn, Silversea, Regent Seven Seas,

    Crystal Cruises, Paul Gauguin Cruises and APT/

    AMA Waterways.

    CMV cancels first cruise CRUISE & Maritime Voyages, the company

    bringing Astor to Western Australia at the end

    of the year, has been forced to cancel the

    inaugural sailing of its other recently acquired

    vessel, Discovery, after passengers had already


    According to reports by British media, the

    ship was detained by the UK's Maritime and

    Coastguard Agency following an inspection inPortland, Dorset.

    MCA said the detention notice would remain

    in place "whilst the owners and crew

    undertake revisions to their safety

    management system".

    Discoverywas supposed to set sail on a 15-

    night cruise to the Northern Lights, in Norway,

    but the 657 passengers have been sent home.

    The last-minute change comes after an earlier

    hitch when the departure was delayed and

    switched from Avonmouth in Bristol, apparently

    due to bad weather in the Bay of Biscay.

    According to CMV, passengers on thecancelled cruise will receive a full refund, 250

    compensation and a 40% future cruise discount.

    After the technical issue is addressed,

    Discovery is expected to sail its next scheduled

    cruise on 15 March.[email protected]://
