Invergordon, Scotland

Invergordon, Scotland Sun 12 Jul 2020

Invergordon, Scotland

On the beautiful Cromarty Firth, here is your gateway to the Scottish Highlands with its dramatic history and spectacular scenery. Haunting lochs and romantic castles enchant the visitor whilst the eerie, windswept Culloden Battlefield and some distinguished distilleries, most notably Glenmorangie, all vie for your attention.

Portree, Isle of Skye

Portree, Isle of Skye Mon 13 Jul 2020

Portree, Isle of Skye

Portree, capital of the Isle of Skye, is the largest of the Inner Hebrides, renowned in history and song and well known for its iconic castles and natural beauty. Pay your respects to one of Scotland’s real heroines, Flora McDonald, who rescued Bonnie Prince Charlie and took him ‘over the sea to Skye’.

Tobermory, Isle of Mull

Tobermory, Isle of Mull Tue 14 Jul 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.

Guernsey (St. Peter Port)

St Peter Port, Guernsey Fri 17 Jul 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 Sat 18 Jul 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.

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.
