Very good top marks. For a good deal

23 Jul 2018

Very good service from John.got us a good deal

good service all round

23 Jul 2018

very precise and efficient on the phone sorted out my arrangements in a straight forward manner. The only criticism i can make is that their 'non refundable' deposit seemed twice as high as that required by Cunard on their direct booking web site hence the lose of a star.

Well done!

22 Jul 2018

Always a pleasure phoning ROL

agreement on charges for singletons.

22 Jul 2018

your rep was informative and agreed with my thoughts that most cruise lines over charge for solos.i told him I did not really want to spend more than £1500 on a cruise. he gave me a choice of cabins and price. I said I will only go on cruises if the quality and price was rigfht.

Better than all the rest.

The agent was excellent . She took us through all the possibilities and the costs. We also had help with visa's and locations. We felt that the service was first class and better than we were expecting. Well done ROL

Help personified

22 Jul 2018

Could not have been more helpfull. Nothing was too much trouble. Their advice and actions were outstanding.

Finally straight forward

22 Jul 2018

John was helpful, knew his subject and was able to make suggestions without being 'pushy'. All my questions were answered well But the initial telephone system of clicking on numbers was maddening, after three separate tries when clicking achieved nothing I finally got through.

So far so good exelent!!!

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.
