Fleet growth at CMV and TransOcean cruises

It is then taken over by CMV in Singapore and subjected to a short stay in the shipyard. It starts its first voyage with CMV guests through the Suez Canal to Bremerhaven.

The ship is measured with 55.820 GT and offers space for 1.160 passengers in 630 cabins; 100 of the cabins are intended for single use. CMV emphasizes an “impressive” passenger-space ratio. The 24-year-old ship comes from a time when ship balconies were still considered an indispensable luxury. Only 149 suites and cabins have a balcony. This makes the Pacific Eden a perfect fit for the CMV fleet, because the other ships also only have a limited number of balconies and terraces.
