ROL convenient and reliable service for cruises

24 Mar 2019

They provide an efficient and knowledgeable booking service for a range, but not all, cruise lines. Have used them in the past and expect to use them again sometime in the future.

ROL certainly is a 5 star company

24 Mar 2019

Katie was so helpful and patient and made me feel special. She was extremely professional and we got there in the end after her having to make phone calls and I'm sure I'd provided her with a challenge. Fantastic service - my first impression of ROL wonderful. I'd heard from others that ROL was a great company to go with - they weren't wrong! I'd definitely recommend ROL to others. ROL certainly is a 5 star company.

Great service.

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

  • Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    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.

  • 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

    This pretty little town, at the mouth of the River Seine, makes a perfect finale to a spectacular cruise. The old harbour and marina are just delightful and the narrow streets and alleys of the old quarter are little changed since French medieval times. Claude Monet’s famous garden at Givenchy, the Normandy Landings beaches and even the Bayeux Tapestry are all within reach.

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.
