  • Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    Day 4

    Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

    12 Aug 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.

  • Day 5


    Torshavn, Faroe Islands

    13 Aug 2020

    Capital city of the Faroe Islands, “The harbour of the god Thor”, is a modern town that retains a unique character; although the islands - a green home to birds, sheep and about 46,000 people - would still be recognisable to the early Viking settlers who arrived on their transatlantic trail from Scandinavia to North America.

  • Seydisfjordur, Iceland

    Day 6

    Seydisfjordur, Iceland

    14 Aug 2020

    This period piece, late 19th century town on Iceland’s East Coast nestles in a bowl of mountains in the Seydisfjörd and is one of the country’s finest natural harbours. Nearby attractions are the ‘reindeer territory’ of the eastern interior, the Vatnajökull glacier and the Lagarfljot lake, said to be home to a mythical monster that guards treasure thrown into the water in Viking times.

  • Akureyri, Iceland

    Day 7

    Akureyri, Iceland

    15 Aug 2020

    The second largest town in Iceland, at the head of the country’s longest fjord, the thriving Botanical Gardens and the fascinating museum are well worth seeing, but the real attraction is the awesome landscape of volcanoes, waterfalls, canyons and geysers. Take a polar flight across to Grimsey, watch for whales or visit Godafoss - the ‘Waterfall of the Gods'.

  • IsafJordur, Iceland

    Day 8

    IsafJordur, Iceland

    16 Aug 2020

    The main city on Iceland’s north west coast, known as the Westfjords region, provides the starting point for a number of fascinating excursions into this sparsely populated area, which, geologically, is the oldest part of Iceland. Here, land meets the sea in the most dramatic way imaginable. The sheer basalt cliff of Latrabjarg is home to one of the largest seabird colonies in the world and a wonderful place to go puffin spotting. Elsewhere, the rugged beauty of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve hides all manner of unusual vegetation, scenic walking trails and wildlife that includes seals and Arctic foxes.

  • Reykjavik, Iceland

    Day 9

    Reykjavik, Iceland

    17 Aug 2020

    Welcome to the world’s most northerly capital! A modern, smokeless city with an old town, lovingly preserved, Reykjavik lies close to an astonishing region of lava fields, spectacular geysers and steaming geothermal springs. Attractions abound, but the Blue Lagoon, with its warm mineral rich waters, and the magnificent Gulfoss Falls should not be missed.

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.
