On board Entertainment
At Cruise & Maritime Voyages, we recognise the importance of offering a very high standard of evening entertainment brought to you by our experienced Cruise Directors and entertainment hosts. It is their aim to ensure that you have an unforgettable cruise holiday and present a truly wonderful and varied entertainment programme. With ‘big show’ productions, guest acts, cabarets and classical interludes, there’s something for everyone on board.
After a busy day ashore, many passengers look forward to starting their evening with a pre-dinner drink before making their way to the restaurant. Following dinner, the highly acclaimed entertainment team invite you to join them in the Show Lounge where they will display their talents in a glittering and colourful ‘big show’ accompanied by the ship’s live orchestra. These stylish performances are complemented with our carefully chosen speciality acts and guest entertainers to add variety to the evening entertainment on offer throughout your cruise.
Highly Acclaimed Big Shows and Cabarets
Our variety of popular cabarets are for your listening pleasure and also offer the chance to step onto the floor. And, if the night is still young, enjoy tracks from our late night DJ. If however it is quieter pleasures that you prefer, how about a liqueur and good conversation; listening to a classical interlude from our resident pianist and violinist; a few hands of cards; or making up a table for a syndicate quiz. And whenever you decide to call it a night, round off a perfect evening with a stroll on deck knowing that the welcoming haven that is your cabin is just a short walk away.
Daytime Activities
During days at sea, you may choose from a work-out in the gym; a make-over in the beauty salon; a swim in the pool or something a little less energetic in the form of curling up with a good book. Perhaps listen to a speaker or learn a new skill from one of our arts and crafts specialists. The choice is yours!
The Dining Experience
Whether you are cruising in the Baltic Sea or the Pacific Ocean it is guaranteed that nothing whets the appetite like sea air. You’ll, therefore, have even more reason to anticipate the feast of delights freshly prepared by expert chefs and served by attentive restaurant staff. Opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a sumptuous five-course dinner each and every day of your cruise.

Restaurants

At the Waterfront Restaurant you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five-course dinner. Breakfasts and lunches are generally served on an open seating basis. However, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner when your attentive waiting staff will welcome you each evening.

London Tilbury Port Information
London Tilbury Port Information

Tilbury became the only port in the Port of London Authority to serve cruise liners from 1916. With the need for expanded facilities, a large new passenger landing stage was constructed in the Thames with rail connections in May 1930. In 1992 the port was privatised to be part of the Forth Ports organisation that is currently restoring the Grade II Listed terminal to its former glory.


Many people who embarked on to ships such as RMS Mooltan from Tilbury set off for a new life in Australia during the 1960s and was known as the 'Ten Pound Poms'.


The London Cruise Terminal at Tilbury, Essex is situated on the River Thames just 25 miles east of London.


Approximate journey times in good traffic conditions from central London and London City Airport is one hour, from London Gatwick Airport and from London Stansted Airport is one hour fifteen minutes and from London Heathrow allow two hours.


Postcode for Satnav is RM18 7NG
