MV Columbus (1988-built as "FairMajesty", last refurbished in 2017, scrapped in 2021) was the smallest and oldest among P&O Australia ships. Pacific Pearl cruise ship was previously operated under the name Star Princess/now Pacific Encounter (between 1989 and 1997, link to the 2001 launched ship) as part of the Princess fleet. In early February 2016 was officially announced that Pacific Pearl leaves P&O AU’s fleet in 2017 to join CMV (Cruise And Maritime Voyages) as "CMV Columbus".

In October 2020, the 31-year-old CMV Columbus was sold to Seajets Ferries Greece for USD 5,321 million. In April 2021, the 32-years-old boat was beached at Alang India for scrapping.
