Kirkwall, Orkney Islands Thu 03 Sep 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.

Portree, Isle of Skye

Portree, Isle of Skye Fri 04 Sep 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 Sat 05 Sep 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.

Belfast, Northern Ireland

Belfast, Northern Ireland Sun 06 Sep 2020

Belfast, Northern Ireland

The famous Irish hospitality and, indeed, the ‘craic’ can be well and truly found in Belfast, the riverside capital of Northern Ireland.

Dublin docklands

Dublin, Ireland Mon 07 Sep 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, Scilly Isles

St Mary's, Scilly Isles Tue 08 Sep 2020

St Mary's, Scilly Isles
Guernsey (St. Peter Port)

St Peter Port, Guernsey Wed 09 Sep 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!

Portland, England

Portland, (Dorset) Thu 10 Sep 2020

Portland, England

Located on the south coast of Dorset, Portland is famous for the white limestone which is quarried here. Portland Stone, has been used on buildings including St Paul's Cathedral and the United Nations Building in New York. A remarkable geographical feature at Portland is Chesil Beach, a narrow bank of shingle more than 10 miles long. Perhaps take a tour to stunning Lulworth Cove on the Jurassic Coast, one of England’s top tourist destinations.

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

Le Harve, France Fri 11 Sep 2020

Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris

Le Havre, translated to English as 'the harbour', was established in 1517 by King Francis I. It has long been the port of choice for mariners and international traders thanks to its prime location.

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.
