Columbus Aerial

Ship profile

At 63,786grt, with a draft of 8.20 metres and overall length of nearly 250 metres, Columbus was purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising and is ideally suited to the type of exciting scenic cruise programme operated. She underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and was upgraded further in April 2017 before the start of her maiden CMV season. Columbus has 775 passenger cabins including 64 deluxe balcony cabins and junior suites. Recognising the needs of single travellers, 150 cabins have been allocated for solo travellers.

Restaurants

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.

Please note: Supplementary charge applies for speciality restaurants and Chef's Table.

Activities

Passengers on Columbus do not need to wait until the evening to start enjoying themselves. Days at sea are filled with a wide variety of activities, including traditional deck games, swimming in our al fresco pools and revitalising beauty salon treatments.

Entertainment

Every Columbus itinerary, from grand round the world voyages to two-week long Baltic cruises, benefits from fantastic entertainment programmes. Whether you would prefer to spend your time relaxing to the soothing strains of classical music, mastering a new arts & crafts skill, or enjoying an exciting cabaret performance, you will find an activity that suits you on a Cruise & Maritime Voyages holiday. The Palladium Show Lounge on board Columbus hosts a tantalising nightly entertainment programme, with talented speciality acts and guest performers providing you with the perfect soundtrack to their evening. If you ever want a break from our thrilling shows and glitzy cabaret, however, those seeking a quieter time will be able to choose from live piano and violin music, organised card games and a host of other relaxing alternatives.
