Board Columbus in Tilbury today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Invergordon's natural harbour, welcomes Columbus today. Step ashore to explore or join a shore excursion, perhaps to Inverness in search of Nessie. Golfers might make a pilgrimage to Dornoch, or whisky connoisseurs to the celebrated Ord Distillery.
Today we will anchor off the 'stretched' village of Kollafjordur, in the Danish outpost of the Faroes. Step ashore to explore this remote settlement, with its ancient, turf-roofed church, and don't miss the opportunity to visit the island capital, Torshavn. The islands' inhabitants are guardians of a deep-rooted Norse tradition and live surrounded by natural beauty. A birdwatcher's Paradise, the Faroes are home to countless species.
Today Columbus arrives in the stunning natural harbour of Seydisfjordur, one of Iceland's most beautiful coastal locations and the cultural capital of east Iceland.
Akureyri, on Iceland's rugged north coast, is a thriving winter sports centre and home to a fascinating Botanical Garden. The area beyond is wondrously scenic, and today's excursion, to the Godafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn, will highlight many of its delights.
This morning Columbus arrives in tiny, exquisite Isafjordur, the capital of the Westfjords area, and gateway to the magical, mystical land of West Iceland from which Norse sailors set out to discover Greenland and the New World.
Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.
Relax on board as Columbus spends another few days at sea.
Our next port is the Shetland capital, Lerwick. Spend time exploring this rugged but enchanting town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
A final day is spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories your cruise holiday as Columbus heads for home.
Bid farewell to Columbus and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
