Embark in London Tilbury before your ship sails at the start of this relaxed, pre-Christmas cruise.
Today Columbus arrives in Amsterdam. Prepare to be delighted by its step-gabled houses, canals and friendly atmosphere. The city comes alive with festive cheer at this time of year, from Museumplein's 'Christmas Square' and the ancient Jordaan district to that beside Dam Square's illuminated tree.
After a morning at sea, Columbus arrives in the great German port-city of Hamburg. Head ashore to soak up the atmosphere of this famously vibrant metropolis, browse the Christmas Market in front of its Renaissance Revival town Hall, and enjoy an afternoon and early evening exploring, before Columbus sets sail at around 10pm.
Relax on board as Columbus spends a day at sea.
Disembark at London Tilbury and make your way home, after a wonderful festive break.
