Traditional British cruise line Cruise and Maritime Voyages are expanding their fleet of ocean vessels with the addition of new flagship Columbus.  Formerly known as P&O Cruises Australia Pacific Pearl, the explorer themed cruise ship is scheduled to sail for Cruise and Maritime from June 2017 and will be dedicated to British cruisers with London Tilbury as her homeport.

Purposely designed and built for deep sea ocean cruising , Columbus will provide an exciting programme of scenic cruises taking British cruisers far and wide. With a length of nearly 250 meters and capacity for approximately 1400 guests, Columbus offers guests a spacious and relaxing cruising experience.

Maiden season will start from June 2017 with exciting itineraries featuring destinations such as Iceland, Fjordland, Baltic Capitals, Amsterdam, the Canary Islands and even Cuba and the Caribbean.
