Combining spacious surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, Columbus is the perfect choice for those looking for comfort and a wide range of on board facilities. However, the ship still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the ‘mega’ resort style ships built today.

Restaurants and Bars With five course dinner available at the Waterfront Restaurant, speciality dining at the Fusion, Grill or Chef’s Table restaurants (additional charge applies) or more informal dining at the Plantation Bistro – or even the Alfresco Grill when the weather is fine – there are many dining options on board Columbus.

Cabins All cabins offer two lower beds (the majority can be converted to double), bathroom with shower, T.V., telephone, fridge, hairdryer, music console, safe, air-conditioning and complimentary pool towel. In addition, a cabin designated ‘ocean view’ offers natural light from a porthole or window.
