Life on board

A medium-sized vessel, Columbus carries on the CMV tradition of leisurely, laid-back cruising amid comfortable, stylish and contemporary surroundings. Expect both fine and casual dining, sterling entertainment and plenty of opportunity to relax – whether at the spa, beside the pool, or with a drink in one of the seven lounges and bars.

There's also a card room if you fancy a few hands of bridge, and a casino for when you want to raise the stakes. Columbus offers a total of nine dining options, from fine dining in the Waterfront Restaurant, to casual fare at the Plantation Bistro and speciality offerings at Fusion.

Plus you can look forward to daily afternoon tea, multiple lounges to relax in and shows every night at the two-tier Palladium Show Lounge!
