ntering service in 1954, the Cristoforo Colombo was built at the Ansaldo Shipyards in Genoa. The new ship is similar in size and speed to her sister ship Andrea
Doria , but a completely different concept of decoration gives the new ship a personality of her own. Emphasis is on comfort, particularly in the well-designed rooms of Tourist and Cabin Class. Throughout the ship, the tasteful use of color, beautiful fabrics and harmonious design will please the eye.

The Cristoforo Colombo offers the seasoned travellers the traditional hospitality of the Italian Line: fine foods prepared by famed Continental Chefs... fine movies in comfortable lounges... numerous public rooms for recreation and relaxation throughout the ship.

All First Class staterooms are outside, with four de luxe suites situated on the mid ship. Cabin Class is also designed so that the majority of the staterooms are outside, each with two or four berths and private shower. Tourist Class, with two and four berth cabins, also offers passengers every comfort aboard ship, plus the advantages of travelling on the most modern transatlantic liner.
