First booking

19 Sep 2018

My first booking with ROL. My call was answered quickly and in a friendly manner. However, when I asked about whether there would be choices for dinner on the ship booked for the expedition voyage (not my experience on previous voyages with Hurtigruten), I was told that there would be. I have since rung Hurtigruten who say that most dinners will be set menus, so they will need to be informed about any specific food needs by ROL. I have now informed ROL. I trust they will pass it on. It's best for staff to admit they don't know the answer to a question, but will find out, rather than misinform customers, no matter how well-intentioned. A payment receipt was sent immediately, but I was warned that it might take up to 14 days to received my booking confirmation documents, which is fair enough, but I've not experienced such delays with other companies. There was no mention of the size of the deposit required (30%) until I was asked for payment. It would have been useful to have this information in the brochure, as it is considerably bigger than I have been used to with other companies.

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.
