Columbus is the flagship for traditional British cruise line Cruise and Maritime Voyages. Formerly known as P&O Cruises Arcadia, the explorer themed cruise ship is dedicated to British cruisers with London Tilbury as her homeport.

Purposely designed and built for deep sea ocean cruising , Columbus provides 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.

Columbus features exciting itineraries sailing to destinations such as Iceland, Fjordland, Baltic Capitals, Amsterdam, the Canary Islands and even Cuba and the Caribbean.
