Review of Columbus

CMV Columbus cruise ship was launched in 1988 as "FairMajesty". As "Pacific Pearl", the vessel was the smallest and oldest in the P and O Australia's fleet. The ship was previously operated as part of Princess Cruises fleet under the name Star Princess (1989-1997). Pacific Pearl was last drydock refurbished in 2015 and transfered to CMV-Cruise Maritime Voyages in May 2017 as "MV Columbus".

History - construction & ownership

The 63,786-ton, 1,817-passenger cruise ship for P&O Australia debuted in December 2010. The vessel was re-designed specifically for the Australian budget cruising market. It continued a number of innovations represented by the sister ships Pacific Dawn and Pacific Jewel, but also introduced few, like the swim-up bar. All cabins are with new LCD screen flat TVs, with a few TV channels and 2 film channels. Bedding was upgraded. Other amenities include a hand held hairdryer, fridge and safe.

CMV Columbus cruise ship

In March 2016 was announced that Pacific Pearl was sold and would be farewelled to CMV in 2017. A commercial arrangement was reached to transfer the vessel, as part of the ongoing fleet expansion and renewal program of the CMV company.

The 1987-built Pacific Pearl left P&O in April 2017, after completing 294 cruises for the line. The older ship had to make room for P&O's newest additions, Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden, as well as Pacific Explorer (former Dawn Princess), which joined the P&O AU fleet in 2017. After the launch in December 2010, Pacific Pearl became New Zealand's first super-liner. The inaugural itinerary was an 8-night cruise to the South Pacific from Auckland

In March 2016 was announced that Cruise and Maritime Voyages would raise its fleet's UK capacity by 25% (to 95,000 passengers in 2017) with the addition of Pacific Pearl as Columbus. The former Ocean Village cruise ship was launched in 1989 and since then was operated by Princess Cruises. The ship started its CMV service with year-round itineraries leaving from Tilbury UK (maiden voyage June 9, 2017) under the new name "MV Columbus". The redesigned 1,400-passenger Columbus ship has 150 single cabins. It became CMV fleet's flagship, joining the mates 550-passenger Astoria, 600-passenger Astor, 800-passenger Marco Polo and 1,300-passenger Magellan. The adult-only Columbus offered 2 promo cruises in August 2017 for all age groups.

Cruise itinerary program

CMV Columbus itinerary program is based on UK cruises leaving roundtrip from Tilbury-London. Among the visited destinations and cruise types are short breaks to Europe, British Isles, Madeira and Canary Islands, Iberia (Atlatic ports of Spain and Portugal, with Gibraltar UK). Also roundtrip from UK (London) Columbus offers cruises to Caribbean and South American ports, also visiting Havana Cuba. Columbus cruises also include roundtrip itineraries from Amsterdam Holland.
