Columbus Spacious surroundings and friendly service

The impressive Columbus cruise ship joined the Cruise & Maritime fleet in June 2017. This splendid medium-sized cruise ship enjoys a sterling reputation on the British cruise market and will offer the same traditional cruising style that CMV is known for. Whether you are treating yourself to a mini cruise or embarking upon a once-in-a-lifetime world cruise, travelling with Columbus is sure to create memories.

Accommodation

Columbus offers a wide choice of well-appointed inner and ocean view cabins plus 28 De Luxe Balcony cabins and 36 Junior Balcony suites. All accommodation is graded according to size and/or position within the ship. A high priority is placed on your comfort, and your cabin steward will ensure a high degree of service throughout your time on board.

Accommodation

Food & Drink

At the Waterfront Restaurant you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five course dinner. Breakfasts and lunches are generally served on an open seating basis. However, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner when your attentive waiting staff will welcome you each evening. Perhaps opt to dine at the Fusion or Grill speciality restaurants or sample the delights of a sumptuous dinner at the ‘Chef’s Table’. If you prefer something more casual, the Plantation Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner, and when the weather is fine, the Alfresco Grill beckons.

Dining

Life on Board

Columbus offers a choice of seven different lounges and bars including the Captain’s Club, Connexions, Raffles and Taverner's Pub and Casino. And, the spacious surroundings on board Columbus mean there is always a quiet corner to relax.

There are six entertainment venues including the impressive three-decked central Atrium, Dome Observatory & Nightclub and two-decked tiered Palladium Show Lounge where the talented Columbus show team and guest acts will perform for your enjoyment. The Palladium’s retractable stage provides a large floor for Ballroom dancing.

The maritime themed Columbus Lounge and Library affords fine ocean views and a place to truly relax with a good book. Trumps & Aces is a new dedicated bridge and card room seating up to 100 guests complimented with a separate Crafter’s Studio to meet the growing demand for arts and crafts.

Columbus offers expansive deck areas and promenades with traditional wooden decking, ideal for viewing on scenic cruises. And, for a spot of retail therapy, there is a fine selection of shops at the central Atrium.
