Arts & Crafts-
With Arts and Crafts growing in popularity, they are including sessions on all CMV cruises of five nights or more. Specialists will be delighted to demonstrate their talents replicating many of the growing number of new crafting skills now witnessed on dedicated TV channels.

This offers you a great chance to become involved and be a part of the fun. Audiences love them, hopefully you will too.
