Disappointing experience
By Patric Parker on 14 January 2019
Cruise & Maritime Voyages | Columbus Reviews

Overall a disappointing first cruise with CMV, not helped by ship having to miss a scheduled stop at Gibraltar. Food ranged from very good to extremely poor, with often strange meat/fish vegetable combinations. Theatre seating needs a major rethink. Staff extremely good and very friendly, unfortunately not enough of them. Given the number of sea days the daytime entertainment/activities was very poor. Nearly half the passengers missed the New Year’s Eve dinner following the Captain’s...

Never to be repeated

Cruise & Maritime Voyages | Columbus Reviews

Always cruise with P&O, but as the Columbus used to be part of the P&O fleet we thought we would try out a five day cruise to the Christmas Markets calling at Amsterdam, Hamburg and Antwerp. The cruise itself was terrible. The Columbus looked as if the heart been ripped out of it. It was in need of repair, and some TLC. The service was extremely slow in the dining room, waiting an hour to...

Chritmas Markets on Columbus – Nice ship but …………..

Cruise & Maritime Voyages | Columbus Reviews

We chose this cruise as we wanted to visit Christmas markets and the duration of 5 nights matched our desired length of time away and the itinerary of Amsterdam Hamburg and Antwerp appealed to us. Not having cruised with CMV before we were not sure what to expect as reviews varied from 1 to 5 stars. We knew Columbus has had a number of owners and including a spell in the P&O fleet as Arcadia...

Embarkation at Tilbury was very smooth. Columbus is a mid-size older ship, but everything was in good shape. All the public rooms were clean and well decorated, the cabins, we had 2 cabins a standard inside and a superior single window cabin (actually a double for single occupancy) on deck 10, and both were clean and big with plenty of storage space and reasonable bathrooms. Cabin servicing was excellent. There were tea and coffee making...

Brilliant value cruise

Cruise & Maritime Voyages | Columbus Reviews

We had a really enjoyable Canary Islands cruise on Columbus. We loved the ship, the old P&O Arcadia, especially the back decks and prom deck. The food in the main dining room was absolutely excellent and don’t know how they do it for the price. Entertainment was better than on other CMV ships that we have been on, not as polished as P&O and Cunard but very good talented singers and dancers. Our cabin was...

Generally good

Cruise & Maritime Voyages | Columbus Reviews

Overall we were satisfied with the cruise, ports of call interesting although the location of our docking site not always the best, paying a little more, would have allowed us a better site and more attractive outlook? Who wants to eat their dinner whilst looking at a coal yard? The early sitting for dinner at 6.00. We found this to be too early, especially if we were interested in going to the show which did...
