Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart London Tilbury

Board Columbus in Tilbury today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two: Antwerp, Belgium

This morning, Columbus calls in Antwerp, and you'll have the chance to explore the colourful Christmas Market held in the Grote Markt (the city's main square). Enjoy the atmosphere amid the twinkling lights, nativity scenes and festive music while savouring a cup of mulled wine or a delicious Belgian waffle.

Day Three: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam's tree-lined canals and cobbled streets take on a magical air as Christmas approaches. A huge ice rink appears on the lawns of the Museumplein, south of the Rijksmuseum, and a series of light sculptures, art installations and projections spring up in the city's squares and along the canals. Shop, explore and enjoy the excitement of this friendly city, and perhaps treat yourself to a glass of advocaat to ward off the cold.

Day Four: Arrive London Tilbury

Bid farewell to Columbus and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
