Ocean Countess farewell cruise details revealed

Details of the final cruise by the Cruise and Maritime Voyage’s Ocean Countess have been released ahead of the ship leaving the fleet this autumn.

The former Cunard vessel, which originally entered service in 1976, has been chartered by CMV for three years.

The 780-passenger ship is being replaced by Voyages of Discovery ship Discovery in 2013.

The 14-night farewell cruise to the Canary Islands, Madeira and Barcelona will depart from Liverpool on October 9.

The ship will now include a visit to Malaga before reaching Barcelona where passengers will fly back to the UK.

CMV commercial director Chris Coates said: “It should be a great experience on board the farewell Ocean Countess cruise and a fitting way to end our operation of this elegant lady.

“We have enjoyed three highly successful summer seasons operating Ocean Countess from regional ports around the British Isles and now look forward to operating the upgraded Discovery in 2013.”

Prices for the cruise from Liverpool’s Pier Head start at £759 per person.
