  3. Columbus
We took 40 people on the cruise around the British Isles aboard the Columbus. The itinerary was excellent and we managed to get in to every port! Every single person was more than happy with the ship and the destinations . Admittedly, we did have surprisingly good weather which helped but three months later people are still taking about their good experiences. Embarkation was very smooth and efficient, there was no waiting around. We were aboard the ship and the luggage was in our cabins within an hour. The cabins are larger than average with plenty of storage. The shower had plenty of room to move and there was a full length mirror. The ship was clean and well maintained. The staff worked hard to ensure public areas always looked good. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Unlike some of the larger ships staff got to know you and made sure that you were well catered for. There was plenty of choice in both dining rooms. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The staff were attentive and ensured dietary needs were attended to. The ship has been renovated. The public areas are comfortable with plenty of seating. The evening entertainment was varied and there were quizzes, music and dancing every evening as well as the theatre entertainment. We would most definitely go on another cruise on the Columbus, it was great value for money and bar prices were not inflated. Highly recommend to others.

Fantastic

Cabin Review

Cabin
Larger than average, we have been on several cruises with different cruise lines and this was one of the largest cabins we have had. There was a full length mirror, a couple of chairs, plenty of storage, a shower room. Plenty of room in the shower to move .
