12:00pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
Hapag-Lloyd’s ultra-luxurious cruise ship Columbus 2 arrives today as she nears the end of her “Britain – an Evergreen Experience for Great Sensations” cruise.
She sailed from Hamburg in Germany on an anti-clockwise cruise around the British Isles.
The French-built vessel has been in Falmouth before – first as the R One and then as the Insignia.
Hapag-Lloyd acquired the ship in 2012.
The 180-metre long vessel can carry 700 passengers and has a crew of 377.
The Berlitz cruise guide rates her with five stars.
Columbus 2 will berth on County Wharf at 0800 hours.
