Here is some background information on the ship:
MV Columbus is the seventh cruise ship of Cruise & Maritime Voyages. She was built by Chantiers de l'Atlantique, at their shipyard in Saint-NazaireFrance, and launched in 1988 as Sitmar FairMajesty. Originally ordered for Sitmar Cruises, she was sold and first entered service with Princess Cruises as Star Princess in 1989. From 1997 to 2003, she served in the P&O Cruises fleet as MV Arcadia. She was renamed Ocean Village in 2003 when the brand was established.[2] Ocean Village was the sole cruise ship of the Ocean Village brand after the Ocean Village Two became the Pacific Jewel. In 2010 the Ocean Village brand ceased its operations and she was transferred to P&O Cruises Australia and renamed Pacific Pearl. She served in the P&O Cruises Australia fleet up until 2017 where she was sold to Cruise & Maritime Voyages and renamed MV Columbus. (Wiki)
