Since its launch in June 2017, Cruise & Maritime’s Columbus cruise ship has proved to be a splendid addition to an already impressive fleet. This 250-metre vessel is perfect for passengers who want to explore the world without the hustle and bustle of huge, resort-style ships. Sit and relax during your days at sea as you experience a journey to the Canary Islands or Madeira on-board Cruise & Maritime.

Spacious, yet with an intimate atmosphere, Columbus is a haven of delectable restaurants, speciality coffee shops, boutique retailers and more. Seek sanctuary in the on-board library (if the view doesn’t distract from your book!), take a dip in the swimming pool and, when night falls, take in a show hosted by renowned guest stars.

Whether you are searching for mini cruises, solo cruises, couple’s escapes or family holidays, Cruise & Maritime Columbus is a ship for all.

  • Launched in 2020
  • 1004 feet
