Your evening meal starts with an appetiser followed by a delicious soup and a light salad. Main courses range from appetising seafood, mouth-watering rack of lamb, medallions of beef, escalope of veal, chicken chasseur, Italian pastas, Asian stir fries, and traditional roasts – and that’s just a small selection of the array of dishes available for you to savour. Tasty vegetarian meals to tantalise your taste buds are featured on every menu, as well as healthy options.

Columbus Reviews


Mrs L Warner-talbott 05/09/2017

Cabin Rating : 5
It was a beautiful suite with ocean views and a balcony. Clean floors though dust on side tables and lamps. Beds were comfortable considering they were two singles made into a king. Fridge had snacks in. Kettle small but good enough for two cups of tea although it takes ages to boil.

Dining Rating : 5
We found the buffet choices good. Food not very hot but the same temperature you would get on a food warmer. The Waterfront table service restaurant is beautiful decorated. Comfortable seats and they even provide individual lumber supports for those seated on the sofas. Food was very well presented and came out quickly. You can choose one from each item written under the bold print. Don't be late as they are unforgiving. You are seated at the same table and sitting each night of your cruise. Be aware that couples/singles will be seated on tables with other couples/cruisers.

Entertainment Rating : 4
We chose to listen to the live music in the bars.

Ship Rating : 5
The ship itself it very clean and organised though a lot of the windows need a good clean. The majority of staff are very friendly. Hallways leading to cabins are clean. They take pride in their ship and I would love to sail on her again.
