Self Drive Itinerary

Day 1 – Home pickup & embarkation in London Tilbury / Day 2 – At Sea
A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at London Tilbury Cruise Terminal, we board the Columbus and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.

Day 3 – Hamburg, Germany
Our first port of call is Hamburg, the second-largest city in Germany, where we discover history and tradition at the city’s wonderful Christmas Markets. German towns and cities really know how to evoke a truly festive ambience with live music, glittering fairy lights and the mouth-watering aromas of cinnamon and glühwein in the air, creating a magical place to get in the festive spirit. Set against the stunning backdrop of the beautiful City Hall, the stalls are packed with hand-crafted Christmas decorations and seasonal delicacies.

Day 4 – At Sea / Day 5 – Antwerp, Belgium
After a day at sea, we moor up in Antwerp, one of Europe’s largest ports, renowned throughout the world as the centre of the diamond trade. With its charming medieval streets and remarkable renaissance buildings, Belgium’s second-largest city is a delight to explore. Historic guild houses and Antwerp’s imposing Town Hall, with its rows of colourful European flags, surround the cobbled stone main square of the old city called Grote Markt. The focal point of the city skyline is the towering Gothic spire of the Cathedral of Our Lady.

Day 6 – Disembarkation in London Tilbury
We arrive back in London Tilbury where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end your holiday.

The impressive Columbus cruise ship joined the Cruise & Maritime fleet in June 2017 and offers expansive deck areas and promenades with traditional wooden decking. Facilities include the Waterfront Restaurant, the more casual Plantation Bistro and the Alfresco Grill. There is also a choice of seven different lounges and bars, six entertainment venues, a fully equipped gym and a well-appointed Jade Wellness Centre. When the weather is fine, there are two swimming pools and a large screen for outdoor movies and sporting events, and the maritime-themed Columbus Observation Lounge affords fine ocean views and a place to truly relax with a good book.
