On Board Experience

Welcome to our exciting programme of exceptional value cruising holidays aboard our smaller to mid-size cruise ships offering a more traditional British cruise experience. Choose between the elegant Marco Polo, intimate Astoria, stylish Astor, impressive Magellan and Columbus – new to the fleet in 2017. We are Britain’s leading independent cruise line and 2018 heralds our ninth year of operation. We have carried thousands of mainly British cruise passengers with 95% of our guests rating the enjoyment of their cruise experience either excellent or good. High praise indeed! Just visit our testimonials page and see for yourself what our customers are saying about their cruising experience with us.

We are the ex-UK cruise specialists with a choice of convenient sailings from a port near you - London Tilbury, Bristol Avonmouth, Bristol Port, Poole, Portsmouth, Cardiff, Harwich, Hull, Liverpool, Newcastle Tyne and Dundee. We believe our ships offer a more leisurely and traditional home from home style of cruising with the emphasis very much on personal service and going that extra mile. We will continue to deliver what we think you want; value matched by quality with attentive and friendly service, a variety of great big show and daytime entertainment within a real maritime experience visiting lots of interesting places and more remote ports of call not always accessible by the larger resort ships.

A tantalising choice of sailings

Our programme offers a wide selection of cruising holidays including the breathtaking Norwegian Fjords, the glorious Baltic & Russia, Iceland & Northern Isles, the Mediterranean, Spain & Portugal, Canary Islands & Madeira and closer to home, our ever popular Round Britain cruises. Next winter, why not join our epic voyage around South America or sail to the spectacular Land of the Northern Lights. Alternatively, take a look at our magical Christmas & New Year cruises to the Canaries and Madeira or Caribbean & Mexico. Columbus’ Grand Round the World Cruise will surely be the travel experience of a lifetime.
