Your Itinerary

  • Board Columbus in Tilbury, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
  • 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).
  • Around lunchtime, today, Columbus arrives in Hamburg. Browse the stalls of the lively Christmas Market that fills the Rathausmarkt (town hall square) with the sounds of fairground music and the scents of gingerbread and gluhwein, or perhaps head into the St Pauli district where legendary Beatles venues like the Indra Club and Kaiserkeller still host live bands almost every night.
  • Spend the day relaxing on board as Columbus cruises towards 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.
  • Disembark at London Tilbury and make your way home, after a wonderful Christmas markets cruise.
