Full Itinerary

Day One: Depart London Tilbury

Board Columbus in Tilbury, then simply settle in to you cabin and relax as your mini-cruise begins.

Day Two: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam takes on a magical air at Christmastime. Vast ice rinks appear on the lawns of the Museumplein and the cobbles of the Leidseplein, and light sculptures, art installations and projections spring up in the city squares and along the canals. Shop, explore and enjoy the excitement of this friendly city, and perhaps treat yourself to a slice of Roomboter Banketstaaf (a traditional frangipane-filled Christmas pastry).

Day Three: Arrive London Tilbury

Disembark in London Tilbury, and make your way home after a wonderful Christmas mini-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.

Further Information

Passport requirements

British Citizens will need a full, 10-year passport to travel on this cruise. Since some countries require visitors to be valid for at least six months after the return date of the cruise we recommend that all customers ensure that this is the case. Holders of non-British passports should check with the relevant embassies to see if any requirements and restrictions exist for any countries visited during the cruise.

Foreign Office travel advice

Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

*Offer applies to new bookings made from 5th July 2018 (inclusive) only. Prices shown when booking include any discounts. The exact value of the discount included will vary depending on offer, cruise, cabin and departure date selected. The applicable percentage discount will be applied first, and the second passenger in the cabin will pay half that discounted price. Single cabin fares will be discounted by a further 25 per cent once the initial percentage discount has been applied. All discounts will be added to your booking automatically once you have selected a cabin and will be confirmed before purchase. All offers are subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time. All fares exclude gratuities.

Where an extra 5% booking discount is available, this can not be redeemed online – please call.

On many of our cruises, a limited number of Voyager Fare Inner and Ocean-view cabins are available. Choose these and you will be accommodated in at least a Standard Twin Inner or Standard Twin Ocean-view cabin (depending on your choice), but will pay only the reduced Voyager Fare price. Availability is limited, so book now to secure your discount.
