There are also added value benefit incentives according to the cabin grade booked. They include up to £1,000pp onboard credit to spend; £480pp in onboard gratuities; complimentary beverage package with lunch and dinner; and special reduced all inclusive drinks package from only £5pp per night.

Guests on this voyage can truly relax, enjoy leisurely days at sea and carefree evenings as Columbus circumnavigates the globe. There will be a chance to discover paradise islands, breathtaking scenery and natural wonders contrasting with vibrant cities and fascinating lifestyles, visiting a cornucopia of exciting destinations.

From the Caribbean, Columbus will transit the Panama Canal sailing via islands of the South Seas to New Zealand and Australia, before unveiling highlights of Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and India. Discover the ancient sites of Egypt and Jordan and transit the Suez Canal to the Holy Land from where Columbus sails along the Mediterranean, homeward bound.

Mid-sized Columbus was built for deep-sea ocean cruising and is the ideal ship for such an adventure.  With spacious lounge areas, comfortable accommodation and a wide range of facilities, Columbus
is the perfect choice for those looking for a traditional British cruise experience.

For most of this cruise, guests will be able to enjoy warmer climes and therefore make full use of the expansive deck areas, swimming pools and whirlpools. The friendly, attentive crew will ensure they receive a high level of personal service throughout.

Launching details of the 2019 Grand Round the World Cruise that recently went on sale, Lisa Jacobs, Head of Trade Sales at CMV, said: “We are expecting a high level of early bookings and anticipate that
the higher grade cabins and suites, along with single cabins, will sell out very quickly. With the average sale being around £20,000, commission earning potential for agents is enormous.”

Columbus will sail out via the Panama Canal and return via the Suez Canal. During this quite remarkable journey guests will visit the Caribbean, Mexico, South Sea Islands, New Zealand and Australia. Adding some extra contrast guests can tick off many more places on their wish list including Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Egypt and Jordan.

CMV also offer shorter sector cruises and even the opportunity to mix and match with their voyage services to and from Australia and New Zealand on board Astor. These are sold as ‘cruise only’ enabling
you to create bespoke holidays for your customers. Full details can be found in the new Winter Cruise Collection 2018/19. Order from: tradegate.co.uk or visit cruiseandmaritime.com
