Cruises from London Tilbury

London Tilbury Fri 08 May 2020

Cruises from London Tilbury

Choose from a selection of cruise lines such as Cruise & Maritime Voyages and set sail to some of the much-loved destinations of the world without the hassle of flying

Cruises around Europe

Rotterdam Sat 09 May 2020

Cruises around Europe
Columbus, Cruise & Maritime Voyages

At Sea Sun 10 May 2020

Columbus, Cruise & Maritime Voyages

Kirkwall, Orkney Islands Mon 11 May 2020

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.

Columbus, Cruise & Maritime Voyages

At Sea Tue 12 May 2020

Columbus, Cruise & Maritime Voyages
Tobermory, Isle of Mull

Tobermory, Isle of Mull Wed 13 May 2020

Tobermory, Isle of Mull

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.

Dublin docklands

Dublin, Ireland Thu 14 May 2020

Dublin docklands

Head to the Irish capital to see some of the world's finest Georgian buildings, to enjoy the freshest pint of Guinness from a rooftop bar, and to learn about the many great writers who once called this charming city home.

St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly

St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly Fri 15 May 2020

St. Mary's, Isles of Scilly

Dropping anchor off Hugh Town, the main town of the Isles of Scilly, affords the chance to visit two of this unique cluster of islands, lying 28 miles south west of Land’s End. St. Mary’s is the largest at just six square miles, while the effects of the sub-tropical climate are spectacularly evident in the blaze of colour at Tresco’s renowned Abbey Gardens.

Guernsey (St. Peter Port)

St Peter Port, Guernsey Sat 16 May 2020

Guernsey (St. Peter Port)

The cobbled streets and relaxed style of Guernsey’s picturesque main town introduce you to the unique Channel Islands. Certainly more Anglo than French, but with enough ‘je ne sais quoi’ to make you think otherwise. Guernsey has a captivating island history, wonderful beaches, miles of coastal walks and tax-free shopping for the less energetic!

Cruises to France

Honfleur, France Sun 17 May 2020

Cruises to France

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.

Antwerp

Antwerp, Belgium Mon 18 May 2020

Antwerp

Lying on the banks of the Belgium’s river Scheldt, Antwerp is the country’s second largest city and endlessly charming.

Cruises from London Tilbury

London Tilbury Tue 19 May 2020

The Ship - Columbus

Christened by Audrey Hepburn on 23rd March 1989, Columbus was originally launched under Princess Cruises. She was transferred to the P&O Cruises fleet in 1997 where she stayed until 2003 as the former Arcadia. Taking over from Magellan, Columbus became Cruise & Maritime Voyages flagship when she joined the fleet in 2017.

With an impressive space ratio, Columbus carries approximately 1,400 passengers accommodated in 775 cabins. Given her size, she provides a very generous, spacious and relaxing feel, synonymous with the CMV brand.
