Sailing from London Tilbury, the impressive Columbus cruise ship joined the Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) fleet in June 2017. This splendid medium-sized cruise ship, with just 775 passenger cabins, enjoys a sterling reputation on the British cruise market and will offer the same traditional cruising style that CMV is known for. Travelling with Columbus is sure to create memories.

Combining spacious surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, Columbus is the perfect choice for those looking for the ultimate experience and comfort sailing from the UK. Offering a wide range of on-board experiences including seven different lounges and bars, two speciality coffee and tea shops, and two deck bars, this ship gives guests ample choice to tailor their leisure time around their preferences. You will never be short of amusement aboard this ship cruise, as the Dome Observatory, Nightclub and Palladium Show Lounge host nightly performances by the talented Columbus show team and renowned guest stars. There is even a large floor for dancing!

However, she still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the ‘mega’ resort style cruising lines built today. The spacious surroundings on-board mean that you’ll always find a quiet retreat where you can put your feet up and simply take in the ocean views. Whether you choose to seek sanctuary with a good book in the library, get energised at the fully-equipped gym or unwind with a relaxing massage, ‘me-time’ doesn’t get better than this.

Voyage to the Land of Fire & Ice

Home to one of the world’s most dynamic landscapes, Iceland is the legendary ‘Land of Fire and Ice’! Vast ice caps, active volcanoes, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools and geothermal hot springs are all part of the exciting nature you may experience on this extraordinary island. Visits to Rotterdam, the beautiful Shetland Islands and the remote Faroes complete this very special cruise.

      

A treasure trove of architecture and art

A voyage to the Baltic Sea is always an enticing prospect and this classic cruise itinerary is not to be missed. It’s a wonderful opportunity to explore Scandinavian kingdoms and countries once locked firmly behind the iron curtain. With eight fascinating ports of call, including an overnight stay in St Petersburg, you’ll visit culture-rich cities with awe-inspiring architecture, and also have the chance to enjoy their musical and artistic heritage.

02/07/21 Land by launch or tenderLerwick, Shetland Isles (UK) 0700 1700
Originally settled by the Norsemen in the 9th century, Lerwick was founded as an unofficial marketplace to service 17th century Dutch herring fleets. The core of the town is a maze of narrow, flagstone streets set behind 18th century sandstone buildings overlooking the busy harbour. Hay’s Dock, once the centre of Shetland’s fishing and boat building industries, is home to the marvellous Shetland Museum and Archives. On the southern tip of Mainland the extraordinary archaeological site of Jarlshof tells the story of some 4,000 years of human history on this remote archipelago with a wealth of wildlife.
03/07/21 Torshavn (Faroes) 0900 1700
Once the site of an annual Viking gathering, Tórshavn is today one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world. It sits on the southern tip of Streymoy, one of eighteen islands in the Faroese archipelago. Tinganes is the old part of the town where characteristic, red wooden buildings with turf-covered roofs cluster on a narrow peninsula. It juts into the natural harbour around which the modern town has been built. The Faroe Islands have a wild and dramatic landscape, which is a magnificent backdrop to optional excursions showing how islanders live on this remote and unspoiled archipelago.
04/07/21 Seydisfjordur (Iceland) 1200 1800
Nestled between Mt. Bjólfur and Strandartindur, Seyðisfjörður is the smallest cosmopolitan town in the world.
The small towns center is known for its many original early 19th-century timber houses and picturesque setting around the lagoon. The town stretches along the south side of the fjord, but along the shoreline, you can find access to the sea, rocky beaches, a puffin colony and ruins of former activity.
05/07/21 Akureyri (Iceland) 0900 1900
Akureyri lies at the head of the 60-kilometre long Eyjafjördur, which is the longest fjord in Iceland. The capital of the north, which was founded as a trading post, is today an attractive town with colourful houses and well-kept gardens. It is also home to both the northernmost botanical garden and northernmost golf course in the world. Optional excursions highlight Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes including surreal rock formations, the lunar-like pseudo-craters at Skutastadir and the stunning, crescent-shaped Godafoss Waterfall. Laufas Folk Museum, or Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland’s newest spa, are relaxing alternatives.
06/07/21 Land by launch or tenderIsafjordur (Iceland) 0800 1700
Situated just below the Arctic Circle, Isafjördur is the largest town in the Westfjords region of Iceland. It sits on a gravel spit that stands out into the Skutulsfjördur flanked on three sides by towering mountains. There are only three roads leading out of the town and all are through tunnels. The Maritime Museum traces the life and history of the settlement where fishing has been, and remains, the area’s main source of income. The Westfjords region is a nature lover’s paradise and a popular excursion visits the magical island of Vigur, which is home to a large eider duck colony and vast bird population.
07/07/21 Reykjavik (Iceland) 0700 2000
Part old Norse, part modern city, the Icelandic capital has a quirky character of its own. Although Reykjavik is one of the world’s smallest capital cities, it is home to almost half of Iceland’s population. Mosaics, murals and sculptures are found throughout the oldest part of the town where brightly coloured houses with tin roofs are watched over by the towering Hallgrimskirkja Church. The classic ‘Golden Circle’ featuring vast lava fields, bubbling mud pools, crashing waterfalls and spouting geysers, is a popular optional excursion along with the chance to bathe in the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon.

Finland’s capital is a vibrant, modern city, yet very much in harmony with the surrounding nature. Its centrepiece is the majestic Senate Square lined with elegant neo-classical buildings and the impressive Lutheran Cathedral with white Corinthian columns and five green cupolas. A striking exception to Helsinki’s general architectural style is the Russian Orthodox, onion-domed Uspenski Cathedral, which stands on a hill at the end of Market Square and dominates the city skyline. Built into solid rock Temppeliaukio Church is also somewhat unusual. Museums are plentiful with the National Museum of Finland, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design Museum amongst the most notable.
18/07/21 St. Petersburg (Russia) 0700

The magnificent Hermitage and its priceless treasures of art, grandeur of Catherine’s Palace at Pushkin and gilded fountains in the gardens at Peterhof illustrate the lavish lifestyle of Russia’s former ruling elite. The birthplace of Russian ballet, St. Petersburg is the perfect place to take in the performing arts.

20/07/21 Tallinn (Estonia) 0830 1600
Estonia’s capital is a fascinating mix of Scandinavian sleek, Soviet-era concrete and medieval Hanseatic city. Tumbling down Toompea Hill, the historic Old Town is a maze of narrow, cobblestone streets and alleyways, turrets and spires. Wrapped within the original medieval wall, which is studded with imaginatively named towers, the Castle, onion-domed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Town Hall Square and Gothic Town Hall survive along with the aura of the 14th and 15th centuries. Just outside the city Rocca al Mare is an open-air museum of Estonia’s rural architecture from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
21/07/21 Stockholm (Sweden) 0900 1400
Approached through an archipelago of some 24,000 islands and islets, Sweden’s stately and spacious capital is itself built on 14 islands connected by some 50 bridges. Founded in 1252, Stockholm grew up around Gamla Stan. The charming Old Town is a maze of medieval alleys and tiny lanes lined with 16th century buildings some of which feature wrought-iron signs symbolising ancient craft workers’ guilds. A delightful mix of parkland and forest, Royal Djurgården is Stockholm’s city park. The island is home to the magnificent Vasa Museum housing a salvaged 17th century Swedish warship that sunk on its maiden voyage.
