Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) is offering a unique opportunity to cruise with the children or the grandchildren on board their new ship Columbus in August 2017 to the Canary Islands and Madeira. Sail from London Tilbury on 11 August to Gibraltar, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Madeira and Lisbon returning to London Tilbury for 14 nights from £1989 for the first passenger and the second passenger travels free, the child fare is just £199pp.
All other school Summer holiday entertainment options will seem dull compared to the chance to go on a cruise with Mum and Dad or Grandma and Grandad to explore the highlights of the Canary Islands. Take the cable car to the top of the rock of Gibraltar and see the Barbary macaque population, the only wild monkey population in Europe. Visit Timanfaya National Park on Lanzarote and the remarkable volcanoes named ‘Fire Mountains’. Discover the unique landscape and violent forces beneath the earth’s crust. And in Gran Canaria, enjoy a day at the magnificent Playa de Las Canteras beach, a short walk from the port at Las Palmas. On Madeira, take the cable car high above Funchal and experience the famous wicker toboggan ride down, a thrilling roller coaster unlike anything the younger passengers will have experienced before.
This great value holiday is more affordable than a week on a summer childcare holiday for the grandchildren or offers an excellent opportunity to unwind following examinations or university for older offspring. Until now, CMV has operated as an adults only cruise line, but requests from guests to be able to bring their children and grandchildren on board have resulted in CMV operating this specific multi-generational Columbus cruise. So, although Columbus generally operates as an adult only ship CMV is offering this cruise in August 2017 with no age restriction. Please note that there are no specific children’s facilities on board.
The fare quoted is based on two people sharing a twin inner cabin on a Buy one get one free basis and includes delicious full board cuisine, afternoon teas and late night snacks, Captain’s Cocktail Party, complimentary tea & coffee 6am to midnight, big show entertainment, cabarets and classical interludes, daytime activities and leisure facilities, guest speaker and arts & crafts porterage of luggage, port to cabin and port taxes. For greater convenience CMV operate an automatic tipping system on board, so instead of worrying how much and when to tip, an amount of £5pp per night will be debited to the passenger’s on-board account.
