Cruise and Maritime Voyages’ 2021 world cruise will take in 38 ports of call across 24 countries.

Sailing on Columbus, the cruise will circumnavigate the globe for 120 nights, departing London Tilbury on 6 January 2021. Prices start at £8999pp.

Destinations on the itinerary include the Azores, the Caribbean, South Pacific, and Australia, where guests can cruise under the Sydney Bridge and experience the Great Barrier Reef. Columbus will also visit New Zealand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand, as well as the Seychelles, before calling at Kenya – with an option to go on safari – and Brazil.

The 1,400-passenger Columbus features two swimming pools and two whirlpools. Guests can dine at the Waterfront restaurant or more casual buffet-style eateries such as Plantation Bistro, plus two speciality dining options, an Indian Fusion and a speciality grill. There are seven different bars and lounges as well as six entertainment venues on board.

The price quoted is based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin and includes full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late night snacks, gala nights and complimentary tea and coffee from 6am to midnight. Porterage of luggage, port to cabin and port taxes are also included.

Earlier this year CMV welcomed its sixth ship to the fleet – the 1,220-passenger Vasco da Gama, which features 630 cabins including 120 balcony cabins and 29 suites.
