Helpful and friendly

13 Nov 2018

Spoke to Liam who was very helpful and not at all pushy (unlike a rival company I also got a quote from). Asked loads of questions on the first call as I hadn't cruised with CMV and didn't really know them, he knew his stuff, I then did a bit of research and called back to book. Called back a third time to add a drinks package, no problem.

Excellent friendly courteous and professional

Overview


Your ‘home from home’ during a cruise aboard Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ fleet is your comfortable cabin accommodation, a restful haven that you look forward to returning to after an exciting day ashore or a busy day at sea. Their ships offer a number of different categories of accommodation in varying sizes and in different deck locations around the ship. Whichever well-appointed cabin you select, you can rest assured that they all offer an impressive array of features as standard.

Enjoy the on board facilities like the pool, whirlpools, spa and fitness centre, and activities, deck games and lectures. However, you may prefer to just relax, read or do absolutely nothing at all. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included together with afternoon teas and late night snacks. And at night, enjoy a production show, relax to music in one of the lounges or dance the night away.

Cruising is a great value holiday. Remember your cruise fare includes your accommodation, full board meals, on board activities and day and evening entertainment – and with this incredible BUY ONE GET ONE FREE promotion there has never been a better time to book.

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.
