There’s also time to spa, shop, swim, work out, or chill by the pool.

And when it’s time to call it a night, indulge in accommodations that will bring you sweet dreams. From a solo stateroom for one to a family suite for 5, and the most luxurious suites in the exclusive Haven complex, there is something for every budget and taste.

Floating Cabanas

But how about bringing a bit of Bora Bora to your getaway by choosing one of the first Floating Cabanas in the Bahamas? This 675 square-foot hideaway has everything you need for you and up to 7 of your friends. Catch some rays on your loungers, chill in the overwater hammock, or splash into the ocean from your slide. When hunger and thirst strike, your cabana attendant will deliver delicious bites and refreshing drinks straight to your private sanctuary.

The Perfect Day at Coco Cay is part of the itinerary of 16 Royal Caribbean ships, be sure you are onboard to experience a day unlike any other! Contact your Vacation Consultant today to find out more.

Sail Around the World with
Cruise & Maritime Voyages

Who hasn’t dreamed of sailing on a world cruise? Even since Phileas Fogg completed his adventure in Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days, it has been the lofty goal of every traveler. Today, you’ll find many cruise lines offering world voyages typically lasting 100+ days, departing annually in January. While some sail partially around the world, others truly circumnavigate the globe.

Cruise & Maritime Voyages is offering just that onboard the 1,400-passenger Columbus, departing on January 6th, 2021. Visiting five continents, 24 countries, 38 ports of call, and transiting the Panama Canal, this epic journey will take 120 nights and span 34,770 nautical miles. Itinerary highlights include Sydney, Singapore, Malaysia, the Seychelles, Kenya, South Africa, and Rio de Janeiro. And just like the intrepid Mr. Fogg’s journey, this world voyage will sail roundtrip from London.

The Columbus was extensively refitted in 2015 and was upgraded again in 2017 before joining the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet. Onboard are 775 staterooms which include 28 deluxe balcony staterooms, 36 junior balcony suites as well as 150 solo staterooms. All accommodations are equipped with twin beds, flat-screen televisions, hairdryers, fridges, and personal safes.

Dining onboard includes the Waterfront Restaurant serving breakfast and lunch in open-seating style, and dinner with early or late seating options. Casual meals can be had at the Plantation Bistro, and specialty dining is available at The Fusion, The Grill, or The Chef’s Table for an extra charge. Afternoon tea and late-night snacks are served daily.

Seven different lounges and bars offer pub brews, cocktails, wine, spirits, and specialty coffees and teas. Guests can enjoy performances and activities at six entertainment venues, ranging from stage productions, cabaret acts, ballroom dancing, and piano music. Two swimming pools, an outdoor movie screen, a fitness center, a crafter’s art studio, a nightclub, a card room, shops, and self-service laundry ensure guests have plenty of options during their voyage.

Sailing with Cruise & Maritime Voyages is different from the big ships. It's a more traditional and leisurely cruise experience onboard, focusing on the destination and life at sea. The Columbus’ smaller size allows her to sail into smaller ports of call and off-the-beaten-path destinations, guests will be well looked after by the friendly and attentive staff who will learn to know their preferences through the voyage. A full lecture program will enlighten guests on the history and culture of the exotic lands they will visit. Best of all, with fares starting from just under US$100 per person per day, Cruise & Maritime Voyages offer tremendous value for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.* Contact your Vacation Consultant for details today and you could be on your way to living the dream of Jules Verne in 2021!
