Great Service.

Friendly and knowledgeable. Callum was helpful with his advice. The booking went smoothly. So up to now I’m very pleased. However, we would like to receive less material through the post. Not interested in Asia or China or Australia etc. Thank you.

Liam was very helpful and very professional and I got a good deal. My first booking with ROL and I will use them in the future.

Good overall service

21 Jan 2019

Service this time was a bit slow coming back to us which was frustrating I do understand it was the weekend and the representative Zach was very busy , The main thing is that our interest in a particular cruise on a Particula cabin for example is on hold or reserved immediately until ROL Are able to get back to us to communicate especially being not in the UK at the time of booking. It is also very important that every single question is answered accurately , Most people including us are spending life savings here and spending a lot of money

Making our cruise experience even better!

21 Jan 2019

If you want to enhance your cruise experience it starts with the booking agent you use, ROL by far exceeds any other agent we have ever booked with. Give them a go, you won't be disappointed!!

Excellent service

Excellent service from ROL as ever.

21 Jan 2019

I have used ROL on several previous occasions and this time - as ever - I received excellent service. Karen was helpful, friendly, and even called me back when she had sorted everything out to save me holding on.

Excellent

    Torshavn, Faroe Islands

    19 Jun 2019

    Capital city of the Faroe Islands, “The harbour of the god Thor”, is a modern town that retains a unique character; although the islands - a green home to birds, sheep and about 46,000 people - would still be recognisable to the early Viking settlers who arrived on their transatlantic trail from Scandinavia to North America.

  • Day 6


    Seydisfjordur, Iceland

    20 Jun 2019

    This period piece, late 19th century town on Iceland’s East Coast nestles in a bowl of mountains in the Seydisfjörd and is one of the country’s finest natural harbours. Nearby attractions are the ‘reindeer territory’ of the eastern interior, the Vatnajökull glacier and the Lagarfljot lake, said to be home to a mythical monster that guards treasure thrown into the water in Viking times.

  • Akureyri, Iceland

    Day 7

    Akureyri, Iceland

    21 Jun 2019

    The second largest town in Iceland, at the head of the country’s longest fjord, the thriving Botanical Gardens and the fascinating museum are well worth seeing, but the real attraction is the awesome landscape of volcanoes, waterfalls, canyons and geysers. Take a polar flight across to Grimsey, watch for whales or visit Godafoss - the ‘Waterfall of the Gods'.

  • IsafJordur, Iceland

    Day 8

    IsafJordur, Iceland

    22 Jun 2019

    The main city on Iceland’s north west coast, known as the Westfjords region, provides the starting point for a number of fascinating excursions into this sparsely populated area, which, geologically, is the oldest part of Iceland. Here, land meets the sea in the most dramatic way imaginable. The sheer basalt cliff of Latrabjarg is home to one of the largest seabird colonies in the world and a wonderful place to go puffin spotting. Elsewhere, the rugged beauty of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve hides all manner of unusual vegetation, scenic walking trails and wildlife that includes seals and Arctic foxes.

  • Reykjavik, Iceland

    Day 9

    Reykjavik, Iceland

    23 Jun 2019

    Welcome to the world’s most northerly capital! A modern, smokeless city with an old town, lovingly preserved, Reykjavik lies close to an astonishing region of lava fields, spectacular geysers and steaming geothermal springs. Attractions abound, but the Blue Lagoon, with its warm mineral rich waters, and the magnificent Gulfoss Falls should not be missed.

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.
