Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart London Tilbury

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

Day Two: Antwerp, Belgium

This morning, Columbus calls in the enchanting city of Antwerp. The "diamond capital of the world" sparkles at Christmastime, and the colourful Christmas Market held in Grote Markt offers a array of original and traditional Christmas gifts and specialities. 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

Columbus's first stop is Amsterdam. At this time of year, the tree-lined canals and cobbled streets take on a magical air. A towering tree rises in front of the Royal Palace in Dam Square, and the lawns of the Museumplein south of the Rijksmuseum are replaced by a vast ice-rink. Explore this delightful, cosmopolitan city, and perhaps treat yourself to a glass of advocaat and a flaky, buttery slice of Roomboter Banketstaaf (a traditional Dutch festive treat).

Day Four: Arrive London Tilbury

Disembark at London Tilbury and make your way home, after a wonderful Christmas markets cruise.

Days marked above with an anchor include ports where you will be transferred to shore by landing boat. These ports may be inaccessible for customers with mobility difficulties as a result. Any days not listed will be spent at sea.
