Cruise & Maritime Voyages will expand by another ship in 2017, as the Pacific Pearl will start service for the British brand and be re-named the Columbus.

The new vessel will increase CMV’s UK capacity up to 95,000 passengers, according to the cruise line.

The ship is larger than the recently added Magellan, which joined the CMV fleet in 2015.

Deployment will be announced later this month.
