Thanks to a very helpful employee of ROL

20 Oct 2018

I was called initially to cancel a holiday booked for Nov. 2019 which was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were going to Myanmar which had long been a dream for us. On hearing our disappointment, Shannon Crick, who called us pulled out all the stops to find an alternative which she did. We were unable to have the same dates, but are very pleased to be going. Not so happy about additional costs, but we have accepted this. Well done to Shannon

Professional and friendly the perfect mix

The cruise we inquired about was booked with no problems, all our queries were solved. Having dealt with Readers Offers in the past I knew I would get satisfaction.

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.
