Based on 1209 reviews

The person I spoke to was clear, helpful and very professional.

21 Jul 2018

The offers were explained clearly and I found it a pleasure to choose the right holiday for me.

Very good service

21 Jul 2018

I did not expect to pay the full amount when booking, this was a problem as the credit card we use has a low limit and was used close to its limit. We are just back from the Baltic and intended to pay off the card. This caused a delay in us confirming the booking but was handled very well by Natasha.

Appalling!

21 Jul 2018

This booking was NOT supposed to have any communication by email! This was told to you by EMMA who did the booking. This has wrecked the surprise that this was to be! You were told after I received a confirmation on my email shortly after booking not to send anything else.Then I receive THIS! THIS IS A DISGRACE!!!!!

A caring, well organised company.

21 Jul 2018

Excellent service from Natasha. Would recommend the company to anyone. Will continue to use FO.

Always a good service

21 Jul 2018

I've used ROL several times before and have always received efficient and good service from them. They phone back when they say they will and will look into any queries that you may have. Cruise Miles is a good incentive to use ROL for another booking. I would recommend them to others booking a cruise.

Quick and easy.

21 Jul 2018

Everything was fine and the booking was handled efficiently. Promised callbacks came within minutes and everything was done with the minimum of fuss.

First class service.

21 Jul 2018

The experience from start to finish was first class. Ensuring that every bit of our forthcoming experience would be to our needs and personal requirements. Also giving us really good advice and the benefit of her knowledge and expertise. I felt that I could really put my trust in the representative because of the way that she handled every detail of our booking. Thank you.

Simple and efficient service.

21 Jul 2018

Excellent and helpful. Booking done with minimum of fuss.

Realistic and helpful

21 Jul 2018

My questions carefully considered and realistic and helpful suggestions made. An excellent booking outcome too. Thank you!

I've never had any problems with Readers Offers in booking cruises.

21 Jul 2018

Very professional and helpful.

Prepared to spend time sorting out a problem

21 Jul 2018

I needed to rebook after original cruise was cancelled. ROL spent a lot of time arranging new booking and ensuring all requirements were met. I was pleased with the time and trouble taken

Very helpful

20 Jul 2018

I spoke to a very helpful young lady when making my booking. Answered all my questions with patience.

The Ship


Columbus became the proud new flagship of Cruise & Maritime Voyages five ship ocean fleet in 2017 taking over the reign from Magellan. At 63,786grt and with an impressive space ratio, she carries approximately 1,400 passengers accommodated in 775 cabins and also accomodates for the solo traveller with 150 cabins allocated for single use. Given her size she provides a very generous, spacious and relaxing feel.

The ship was originally launched under Princess Cruises in 1989 and christened by Hollywood actress Audrey Hepburn on 23rd March 1989. In 1997 she was transferred to the P&O Cruises fleet and was the former Arcadia, where she stayed until 2003 when she was reassigned to Ocean Village, before returning to P&O Cruises in 2010. She was last refitted in 2015 and also underwent refurbishment in April 2017.
