The requirements for two friends were a little complicated, but at all times we were treated politely and courteously by the members of ROL staff that we both spoke to. We would recommend ROL to other friends and look forward to our cruise experience.

They were friendly and kept me informed as promised

Excellent service

22 Sep 2018

Leona was excellent in her help, attitude and service. this is the second time I have booked with ROL and both times they have been superb. Would definitely recommend them.

Efficient and friendly staff let down by “the system”.

22 Sep 2018

It was good that you transferred my deposit to the same cruise 12 months later, even the same cabin. One negative aspect is that “the system” sent me a special delivery letter to remind me I owed the balance just a few days before the transfer was arranged. That was a worry. I suggest that a covering letter be sent in future to explain that the letter should be ignored once the transfer is agreed.

Booking experience with rol cruise.

Very courteous explained everything and I got the very best available. I am looking forward to the experience very much and experiencing the Calypso.

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.
