FABULOUS ‘NO FLY’ CRUISES WITH CRUISE & MARITIME VOYAGES ‘COLUMBUS’

Whether you’re new to cruising or have been an avid cruiser for a long time, we have four great cruises to choose from to suit a range of tastes and budgets. Discover a world of cruising with a difference with our cruise partner, Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), aboard the impressive ‘Columbus’. All four cruises depart from London Tilbury which means you avoid a lengthy airport check-in and a 20kgs baggage allowance (there’s no baggage limit on our cruises).

Columbus  

We are delighted to feature the impressive, adults only, ‘Columbus’ in our 2018 cruise programme. This splendid cruise ship enjoys a fine reputation on the British cruise market and offers the same traditional cruising style that CMV is known for.

Combining spacious surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, ‘Columbus’ is the perfect choice for those looking for comfort and a wide range of on board facilities. ‘Columbus’ was purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising and we believe is ideally suited to the type of exciting cruise programme we operate. She underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and was further upgraded in April 2017. ‘Columbus’ has 775 passenger cabins including 64 deluxe balcony cabins and junior suites and, recognising the needs of single travellers, 150 cabins will be allocated for solo passengers. Note: In the event of adverse weather/sea conditions that prevent the ship from calling at one of the scheduled ports, alternative arrangements will be made where possible.
