Stress free holiday

14 Nov 2018

Having booked with ROL before and received a good experience, two years previously my husband (who recently passed away) was hospitalised the night before we were due to sail around the med so my son and I thought let's do it for dad and so that is what we are going to do as he enjoyed the last med trip enormously.

Easy booking process!

14 Nov 2018

When I rang Rol cruises I was immediately put through to John, he answered all of my questions about the cruise in a very pleasant and efficient manner, he had full knowledge of everything about the cruise. If the cruise is as good as the booking process, it will be amazing, top marks up to now

A good experience

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.
