Ship Facilities

For many people, the amazing array of cuisine available at their fingertips is one of the highlights of embarking on a cruise. Whether you prefer a relaxed, poolside buffet or a more formal sitdown affair, Astor has a restaurant to suit all cruisers.

  • The Waldorf Restaurant- with an open-sitting at breakfast and lunch and two fixed dinner sittings, this restaurant offers diners flexibility and superb food at every mealtime.
  • Club Bistro- head here for an expansive self-service buffet in a casual dining setting
  • The Romantic- a speciality restaurant serving classic dishes such as roast lamb
  • Toscana- Astor’s second speciality restaurant, delivering fresh Italian fare no matter where in the world you are

After enjoying a perfectly prepared dinner, what better way to carry on the evening than watching a live performance at the Astor Lounge, followed by late-night cabaret shows that mean the fun doesn’t have to stop once the sun has gone down.

Alternatively, for a more mellow evening, enjoy live music from the resident pianist or your favourite drink expertly made at the Hanse Bar.

Whether you choose to take part in one of the many activities on offer or simply luxuriate in the pleasure of doing nothing, Astor has all you need to make this holiday one to remember.


If you like to stay in shape, Astor has everything you need to get that blood pumping. Featuring a fitness centre, swimming pool and a fitness team who will take you for a walk or a jog around the sundeck, there’s an array of ways to fit your workout into your cruise.


Make the most of your free time by listening to a guest speaker or learning a new skill from one of the onboard arts and crafts specialists. There is also a popular Card Room, where guests enjoy meeting up with new found friends for a catch up and to play a board game.


Cruise and Maritime know that an important part of any holiday is the opportunity to enjoy some rest and relaxation, which is why guests can make the most of massages, hair styling and body treatments at the Oasis Spa and Wellness Centre.

Customer reviews for Astor

Very clean and most impressed with that. Spent three relaxing days at sea from Fremantle W. Australia. I think this ship would be good for a first cruise but after experiencing other cruises we found: Price reasonable Entertainment excellent Restaurants few and no set bookings Food mediocre Cabins small with few balconies Facilities mediocre Staff reasonably friendly Star rating overall 3

Our Cruise in March a number of passengers (30) got food poisoning on the Astor and had the most unpleasant experience of being taken off the ship in Albany and Fremantle and taken to hospital. No follow up support from the cruise company and an information sheet of who to contact - you are left to your own devices. The cruise company has been a nightmare to deal with and get information from. Good luck if your cruise goes well, because if it doesn't, don't expect their customer service to respond - they are appalling. All the sick passengers from this cruise feel the same way. Some big lessons needed to be learnt from their appalling public relations from this cruise to not even answer emails with a standard response to very sick passengers leaves a lot to be desired. They are happy to take your money, but wont admit fault when they have to. We are still waiting for a further response, 3 months down the track. Lift your game Astor. The TV stations are still following up on this cruise with the sick passengers...

Travelled from Sydney to embark on the Astor for the return cruise southbound. I had a 46 day party meeting new friends including the friendly crew. It was such fun enjoying the tropical sun from our first port of call Madeira. Perfect cruise for anyone who loves good food, entertainment and fabulous destinations. Well done to all who sailed and next time will be on my to do list again .
