As usual the staff at ROL listen, react and deal with any query that you have. They are fast and efficient, pleasant in manner, and they care about the customer. Every different person dealt with over many years has been the same. As a Company ROL obviously train their staff well, are particular about the people that they employ, and look after their Staff in such a manner that they, the Staff, are more than happy in going the extra mile to ensure that ROL remain at the top of the game. Particular mention, on this occasion, must go to melody for her assistance. What a star!

I will hopefully continue to book with ROL & advise others to do the same

I have always found the people I have spoken to helpful & efficient Immediate response to my booking is always useful I have occasionally tried contacting cruise lines - not helpful / friendly or successful

Worth using

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.

Excellent service

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.
