Pleasant negotiations

18 Jun 2018

Discussions were plain and straightforward, and the responses to questions were clear. Not being particularly computer literate, \I don't know that I shall be able to download the information,- I have yet to try. A package in the post would be more reassuring !

Recommended by a friend, as good as she had said.

Very happy with the experience. Great customer service and very knowlegable without being pushy

Very effective service from both Customer And Transfer Depts.

15 Jun 2018

Although we have just been forced (through changed personal circumstances) to cancel a cruise, the transfer Dept were extremely efficient in re-booking for 2019 and at least ensuring that we did not lose all our money! Follow up emails were swiftly despatched. Many thanks indeed

  • Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Day 2

    Amsterdam, Netherlands

    06 Jun 2019

    Although equally famous for its rebellious contemporary edginess, Amsterdam is a picturesque city with a fascinating history and rich artistic heritage.

    At Sea

    07 Jun 2019

  • Day 4


    Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    08 Jun 2019

    The capital and administrative centre of the Orkney Islands, set on the principal island known as Mainland. The Orkneys comprise 70 or so islands, rocks and skerries that cover an area of 376 square miles. You can still detect the Norse influence and the Stone Age settlement at Skara Brae, older than either the Pyramids or Stonehenge, is fascinating.

  • Portree, Isle of Skye

    Day 5

    Portree, Isle of Skye

    09 Jun 2019

    Portree, capital of the Isle of Skye, is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, renowned in history and song and well known for its iconic castles and natural beauty. Pay your respects to one of Scotland’s real heroines, Flora McDonald, who rescued Bonnie Prince Charlie and took him ‘over the sea to Skye’.

  • Tobermory, Isle of Mull

    Day 6

    Tobermory, Isle of Mull

    10 Jun 2019

    Genteel describes the lovely Georgian harbourfront architecture of the little town of Tobermory, whilst rugged is a more apt description for the wild moorland and mountainous interior of the Isle of Mull. Take a trip on the Mull Railway or visit tiny traffic-free Iona, where St Columba first brought Christianity in 563 AD.

  • Dublin, Ireland

    Day 7

    Dublin, Ireland

    11 Jun 2019

    Head to the Irish capital to see some of the world's finest Georgian buildings, to enjoy the freshest pint of Guinness from a rooftop bar, and to learn about the many great writers who once called this charming city home.

    12 Jun 2019

  • St Peter Port, Guernsey

    Day 9

    St Peter Port, Guernsey

    13 Jun 2019

    The cobbled streets and relaxed style of Guernsey’s picturesque main town introduce you to the unique Channel Islands. Certainly more Anglo than French, but with enough ‘je ne sais quoi’ to make you think otherwise. Guernsey has a captivating island history, wonderful beaches, miles of coastal walks and tax-free shopping for the less energetic!

  • Honfleur, France

    Day 10

    Honfleur, France

    14 Jun 2019

    The port at the Normandy city of Honfleur sets the standard for picturesque ports everywhere.

The Ship


At 63,786grt, with a draft of 8.20 metres and overall length of nearly 250 metres, Columbus was purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising and we believe is ideally suited to the type of exciting scenic cruise programme we operate. She underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and will be upgraded further in April 2017 before the start of her maiden CMV season. Columbus has 775 passenger cabins including 64 de luxe balcony cabins and junior suites which will please many of our customers who have been asking for more balcony accommodation. Following the successful trial on board Magellan, and recognising the needs of single travellers, 150 cabins will be allocated for solos.
