Columbus 2 at Anchor in Douglas Bay

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2013

COLUMBUS 2 [ex R ONE / INSIGNIA] was the first of the R Class Cruise Ships built for Renaissance Cruises in 1998 by Chantiers de l'Atlantique. She operated as INSIGNIA for Oceania until 2012 and is believed to be returning to Oceania as INSIGNIA from May 2014.

The photographs below were mainly taken from Laxey Towing Company's KARINA on an afternoon cruise to Dhoon Bay. For further information on KARINA excursions [click here].
