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.

Excellent Service

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

  • Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    Day 4

    Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    09 Oct 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.

  • Tobermory, Isle of Mull

    Day 5

    Tobermory, Isle of Mull

    10 Oct 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.

    Honfleur, France

    15 Oct 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.
