England, Scotland & France

Set sail on an unforgettable summer cruise aboard Columbus. Relax on board, enjoying the enviable array of restaurants, bars, shops and other distractions Columbus has to offer, or simply gazing out across the water, as you cruise gently along the British coast.

Discover little harbours hidden beneath the rugged Highland and Island scenery of Cromarty Firth, Mull and the Isle of Skye. Spend sunny days strolling lanes lined with green fields and hedges filled with wild flowers on Guernsey and in the Scilly Isles, and cross the Channel completely at the beginning and end of your cruise as Columbus calls at the delightful, cosmopolitan Dutch port of Rotterdam, and the pretty, French port of Honfleur at the mouth of the River Seine.
