At 63,786 tonne, with a draft of 8.20 metres and overall length of nearly 250 metres, Columbus was purpose built for deep sea ocean cruising and ideally suited to the type of exciting scenic cruise programme on offer. She underwent an extensive refit in August 2015 and will be upgraded further in April 2017 before the start of her maiden programme with Cruise & Maritime Voyages.
Accommodation - Accommodating up to 1400 guests, Columbus has 13 passenger decks, serviced by nine lifts. Columbus offers a wide choice of well-appointed inner and ocean view cabins plus 28 De Luxe Balcony cabins and 36 Junior Balcony suites. All accommodation is graded according to size and/or position within the ship.
Dining & Entertainment - At the Waterfront Restaurant you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely lunch and enjoy a delightful five course dinner. Breakfasts and lunches are generally served on an open seating basis. However, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner when your attentive waiting staff will welcome you each evening. Perhaps opt to dine at the Fusion or Grill speciality restaurants or sample the delights of a sumptuous dinner at the ‘Chef’s Table’ (supplementary charge). If you prefer something more casual, the Plantation Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner, and when the weather is fine, the Alfresco Grill beckons. There are extensive lounge areas including the Palladium Show Lounge with big show entertainment & cabarets, the Captain’s Club, Connexions, Raffles and Taverners Pub & Casino.
