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 boasts 775 passenger cabins, 75% of which provide ocean views. Several Deluxe-balcony cabins are also available. 150 cabins are allocated for single cruisers and with Columbus being an adult only cruise ship, guests can expect a sophisticated atmosphere onboard.

Following an extensive refit in recent years and further refurbishment in 2017, Columbus now boasts several exciting dining venues, bars and entertainment venues.

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