Columbus Cruise Review by scenery lover
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: British Isles & Western Europe
Embarkation was extremely smooth and fuss free, as was disembarkation a week later.
I thought Columbus was really beautiful. My cabin (single, inner) was very nice indeed; clean, comfy and very roomy, there were twin beds and plenty of room for two. I usually ate in the buffet because I prefer not to take too long over meals, especially being solo.
I thoroughly enjoyed the talks from the antiques experts. I hadn't expected to like the evening entertainments because it's not usually my thing, but the ones I went to were excellent, especially the last night's version of Queen music.
Cabin service was very good indeed, my cabin was always in tip top condition.
I enjoyed all four shore excursions, although I think they are a bit pricey. Some people do their own thing but it's harder on your own.
I really only have three very small caveats. One is the price of the photos you get taken the whole time. I know there's no obligation to buy them, but what a waste! Another is the almost over-attentiveness of the waiting staff; If I wanted a drink I'd ask! Lastly I wish there had been more than one complimentary tea and coffee station. I only drink tea, and it was four decks and the length of the ship away! Surely there would be room for two or three?
