ROL Cruise customer experience rating 4.8/5 


Based on 3094 reviews

Energetic, but just not sure of some of the details when asked.

19 Nov 2018

Generally very good - had to be prompted about a few things, hence the 4 stars rather than 5

Excellent service.

They were very helpful. Gave me good information. Happy to advise about cabins and not being near a lift. I would be definitely recommend them.

Oriana May 2019 - something to look forward to!

18 Nov 2018

I initially made the enquiry prompted by a Daily Mail advert for a cruise in May 2020. However, after speaking to Gerald and thinking about it, my husband and I decided to book a cruise for next year ie 2019!! Upon contacting Gerald's phone again, it was his day off, but a colleague, Stacey, rang me back and we discussed options for May next year. We have now booked for the Oriana 19 days. Both agents were really helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and confident with their knowledge. Well done!

Spot On.

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.
