CMV Columbus

Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ latest addition to the fleet, Columbus will arrive at the London Cruise Terminal in Tilbury next month with a special Naming Ceremony taking place 8 June.

One of the many highlights of the ship’s first season is bound to be a 121-night world cruise departing 5 January 2018 from London – Tilbury. CMV has extended their ‘Buy One Get One Free PLUS’ deal until 31st May for this spectacular round the world voyage, leading-in at £7499pp based on a fare of £14,999 for the first adult and the second adult travelling free. CMV is also offering a range of generous added value benefits for ocean view cabins:- included tips to crew (normally £4pp per night), on-board credit allowances up to £1000pp or free travel insurance, and complimentary beverage packages with lunch and dinner. These all depend on the choice of cabin grade.

CMV’s Mike Hall, Head of Marketing said ‘Our BOGOF deal with added benefits has proven very popular hence the extension. This is the travel experience of a lifetime and already we have seen that some cabin grades are on waitlist, as are many single cabin grades. It is easy to see the economics of being away for four months with no shopping, heating, fuel and other household cost. Out via the Panama and back via Suez plus 39 different mouth watering ports, now taking a world cruise is no longer the prerogative of a few, thanks to CMV.’

It marks the 20thAnniversary of this ship’s innaugual world cruise. Shorter sector options of the cruise are available. You can join the ship at different stages such as Australia, New Zealand, Hong King & Dubai by flying out or back from the different destinations, depending on your choice. Booking incentives apply including up to £500 credit towards the cost of the flights.
