Introduction

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.

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. 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 our 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 ballroom 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 creative in the new Crafter’s Studio, get energised at the fully-equipped gym or unwind with a relaxing massage, ‘me-time’ doesn’t get better than this.

If you or one of your travelling companions has a mobility limitation or special needs, it is essential that you contact the CMV office to allow then to discuss your requirements before you make a booking. Firstly though, please read the panel headed ‘Maritime Passenger Rights’ within the Booking Conditions on page 127 as this contains important information. In the interests of safety, and in order to ascertain whether you or members of the party travelling with you have specific mobility or other special needs, you will be asked a series of questions. The answers to these will enable us to determine that you, any other person in your booking, and any equipment that you or they are intending to bring on board can be carried safely for the duration of your cruise. This will then be confirmed in writing to you, and will enable your booking to proceed. A cruise is quite unlike a land based holiday and the ships of our fleet are not ideally suited to prospective passengers in wheelchairs or those who have limited mobility. It should be noted that the layout of the ship could considerably restrict such passengers’ movement around the vessel and indeed preclude access to some of the ports of call, where gangway conditions are not conducive or passengers are conveyed ashore by tender. At anchorage ports, access to or from the tenders or launches requires a certain level of mobility which is necessary to manage the steps to the tender platform and to physically board and disembark from the vessel. It should therefore be noted that, on safety grounds, those with restricted mobility may be unable to go ashore at such ports.

Dress Code

During the day, attitudes are very relaxed and informality is the key. Casual clothing is quite sufficient during the days at sea and for time spent ashore. On certain shore excursions and at some religious sites, discretion should be used so as not to cause inadvertent offence with inappropriate clothing. Advice will be given on board in such cases. Every day, the Daily Programme suggests, as a guide, a mode of dress for that particular evening’s events. Generally there are two ‘formal’ or gala nights planned on each cruise when many gentlemen wear a dinner jacket, although a lounge suit is quite acceptable. The ladies on these occasions have a chance to dress up and often opt for evening or cocktail dresses. On evenings proposed as ‘informal’, a suit or smart jacket and trousers, with or without a tie, for the men is suggested and the ladies have further opportunities to look elegant in a cocktail dress, trouser suits and stylish co-ordinates. A ‘casual’ recommendation often covers evenings spent in port or when a special event such as a deck party is scheduled. In these cases, the choice of dress is left entirely to you.

Special Dietary Requirements

If you, or a member of your party, have a particular dietary requirement, CMV are able to offer the following dietary options: Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, Low Cholesterol, Low Fat, Low Salt and Vegetarian Meals. If you have not done so at the time of booking, please advise any requirements no later than two weeks prior to departure. Kosher and Halal meals are available but only if requested at least 6 weeks prior to sailing.

Age Restriction

Please note that cruises aboard Columbus are child-free and therefore for the enjoyment of adult passengers only (16 years and above at the time of sailing). There are no dedicated recreational facilities for children aboard but nevertheless accompanied children and teenagers under the age of 18 at the date of sailing are of course welcome on board and, when occupying a third or fourth berth in a cabin with two full fare paying passengers. Children and teens under the age of 18 at the date of sailing but occupying a twin cabin with just one accompanying adult, are charged at the full adult fare. CMV are unable to carry infants under the age of six months at time of sailing.

CMV Additions Packages

Take your pick from a selection of four onboard packages and enjoy some great pre-sail savings. To enable you to budget for any extra costs, there are four superb value onboard package options that include service charges, gratuities and other additions. Savings are available on these packages when booked and paid for before your cruise, so we highly recommend that you take full advantage of these packages.
