  3. Columbus
We are relatively new to cruising, this was our seventh. After reading some of the reviews we were a little apprehensive. Bu t the ship far exceeded our expectations. We used the long stay car park at Tilbury, very smooth and quick, although we arrived early we were processed straight through to the ship. The Columbus is a tremendous ship, very spacious and modern. The cabin ( deck 5 outer) was as good as any we have had, this includes P&O and Celebrity among others. The dining arrangements work very well, we had late sitting, so straight from the early show and in to dinner, then on to the various music venues. The entertainment was superb, led by the brilliant cruise director Ian. Food, out of this world, I don't know what some of the other critics expected, we could not fault this cruise. Our first CMV cruise, definitely not our last. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
