My booking was made so easy thanks to Katie.

Friendly, knowledgeable advice about the ship and very efficient booking

17 Jan 2019

Didn’t have to wait long to speak to an agent who was friendly, gave set helpful advice and made the whole booking process easy and efficient. Met ROL Reid first last tour on a South Africa cruise who were genuinely friendly and explained the benefits. First time we’ve used you to book will do again. Thanks to Katie who dealt with me.

calm flowing waters

Member of staff introduced herself and told me I can get back to her for any queries. She answered the questions I had and told me rest of the info she had to pass on. For me this is a holiday of a lifetime but she steered me through all the important stuff calmly.

GREAT SERVICE

16 Jan 2019

Speedy reply to my call, knowledgabe approachable agent who listened to my request and was able to help immediately. When he put me on hold in order to speak to the cruise line, rather than keep me listening to the awful music he said that he would call me back which he did in a very short space of time.

This must be the best

16 Jan 2019

Had not used ROL previously, but quite impressed with the initial contact and the follow up. No pressure sales, just the facts and they were quick in obtaining all the relevant information to enable us to make a decision. All paperwork arrived initially by email within 30 minutes, all correct. Staff were helpful, informative and polite, excellent service.

Swift telephone response

16 Jan 2019

Answered telephone without very long wait. Helpful. Rang back when they said they would. Answered questions straight away without demanding name and endless details first, eg "how much for a single" got an answer without providing name, DOB, email etc etc which other operators do.

As I have said a pleasant phone call with your colleague

16 Jan 2019

Arlene spent some very useful time finding out and answering cabin detail queries on the Marco Polo for me and giving me comprehensive details of the organisation of the holiday. She made the booking a very pleasant activity.

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.
