CMV's Columbus in Tilbury

CMV's Columbus in Tilbury

Postby Dave » 11 Jul 2019 16:41

My walk today took me through Gravesend in Kent, which is on the opposite bank of the Thames to Tilbury.

I could see a cruise ship in port from a long way off and eventually managed to identify it as Columbus. Interestingly, her previous incarnations include being Star Princess, P&O Arcadia and Ocean Village (amongst several others!). Not a bad looking ship...

I took more photos which I'll include in my imminent walk report! ;)

Indeed a nice-looking ship. I hate the ones with drawings and squiggles all over the place. Plain white is so much classier! :D

I sailed on her as Ocean Village. :mrgreen:

My hubby’s first cruise. She was marketed as the cruise ship for people who don’t do cruises. Certainly sold hubby as done plenty more since then! :thumbup:
