Cruise Dialysis

Majestic Fjordland onboard Columbus departing London Tilbury, 25 July 2021, 7 nights, fares from £1558

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.

Discover the Breathtaking Fjords

Experience the awesome scale and beauty of Fjordland as you cruise gently along the magnificent Norwegian fjords. From the rail of Columbus and the calm serenity of still blue waters, look up past green slopes and forests to towering mountain peaks punctuated with cascading waterfalls. Contrast all this with pretty Norwegian towns and villages and you have a voyage to remember.

Cruise Itinerary

DATE PORT ARRIVE DEPART
25/07/21 London Tilbury (UK) 1600
26/07/21 Rotterdam (Netherlands) 0800 1500
Rotterdam is divided north and south by the River Nieuwe Maas with the city centre located on the northern bank of the River. Built mostly behind dykes, large parts of Rotterdam are below sea level. There is a whole host of attractions – a city of modern architecture and delightful culture. Over the centuries, Rotterdam has grown from a fishing village into an international centre of trade. From Rotterdam choose to take an optional tour to Delft & The Hague or the UNESCO World Heritage site Kinderdijk.
27/07/21 At Sea
28/07/21 Land by launch or tenderEidfjord (Norway) 0700 1400
Lying at the end of a tributary of the beautiful Hardangerfjord, Eidfjord is surrounded by mountains up to 1,900 metres high. The small town is the gateway to Hardangervidda, which is the largest high mountain plateau in Europe and Norway’s largest national park. A short walk from the village centre there are graves by the roadside dating back to the Iron Age and Viking eras. The ‘old’ church in Eidfjord was built in 1309. Nearby the stunning Vøringfossen waterfall is one of Norway’s most popular natural attractions and features in optional excursions along with the amazing Sysen Dam.
29/07/21 Olden (Norway) 0900 1800
The southernmost of the three short branches at the inner end of Nordfjord terminates in Olden. The charming village sits amongst tidy, well-kept farms on gently sloping, fertile hillsides, which then rise steeply into thickly wooded and rugged peaks. From the village the beautiful Oldendalen Valley runs between towering mountains to the edge of the mighty Jostedalsbreen Glacier. Briksdal Glacier is one of the more accessible arms of the Jostedalsbreen. The creeping pitted tentacle of ice features in optional excursions from Olden together with glorious waterfalls, glacier fed rivers and wonderful mountain lakes.
30/07/21 Bergen (Norway) 0700 1600
Known as the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city. Yet with a population of less than a quarter of a million, it has the feel of a small town. It is beautifully sited against a backdrop of seven mountains and the funicular ride to the summit of Mount Fløien affords wonderful panoramic views of Bergen and Norway’s attractive coastline. Overlooking the harbour the colourful Bryggen wharf is the face of Bergen. The characteristic wooden gabled buildings were once the home and offices of Hanseatic merchants but today house shops selling crafts and traditional souvenirs.
31/07/21 At Sea
01/08/21 London Tilbury (UK) 0800
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.
