At 46,000-tonnes and with a passenger complement of around 1100, spacious Magellan retains a sense of traditional cruising and small-ship intimacy, thanks to the beautiful layout and tasteful contemporary style of her public areas, and of course the presence of her friendly, welcoming crew and cruise staff. A major refit in 2010 has ensured her position as a thoroughly modern, bright and supremely comfortable floating home, and she is a hugely welcome addition to the fleet.

Settle into your cabin and begin your cruise in dynamic Singapore. The island-city has a rich history, as well as glitzy malls and futuristic high-rises, the world's best 'street food', and 'Singapore Slings' at the famous Raffles Hotel. It's the perfect place to start a voyage full of new discoveries.
Continue along the Malaysian coast to historic Port Klang. It's the gateway for Kuala Lumpur, the Malay capital that boasts the sky-piercing Petronas Towers. Step ashore for an excursion into this vibrant city, where the preserved Old Railway Station contrasts with glitzy new developments.
Penang, the colourful, Malaysian 'Pearl of the Orient', offers a feast for the senses - street food, UNESCO-listed George Town, Chinese shophouses, stunning beaches and breathtaking tropical gardens.
Island paradise Phuket, with its luxurious developments, its rubber plantations and bustling main town, provides a last 'taste of the east'. Perhaps visit an idyllic beach for a few days, before Magellan now heads west once more, across the Andaman Sea and on into the Indian Ocean.
Arrive in the Indian sub-continent at Chennai, formerly 'Madras'. 'Clive of India' was once a resident here, working as a humble clerk for the East India Company.
Optional shore excursions will reveal relics of the Raj at St Mary's Church, the oldest British building in India, at the Fort Museum, Marina Beach, and the Chepauk Cricket Stadium, or Kanchipuram, renowned for its exquisite hand-woven silks and saris.
Spend today in the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo, and explore another bustling city - with its restored Fort area and the ancient street markets of Pettah. Alternatively, choose to join a shore excursion into the lush, temple-dotted countryside.
Male is capital of the stunning Maldives archipelago - a wonderfully colourful place, dominated by the dome of the Friday Mosque. Enjoy this last Asian call before Magellan continues across the Arabian Sea.
Relax for few days aboard your floating home-from-home, before arriving in Oman. The 'Perfume Capital of Arabia', Salalah, is an ancient settlement where you might step ashore to explore the city or the ancient Khor Rori ruins.
The Red Sea port of Safaga brings the chance to enjoy a full-day excursion to Luxor, once the ancient Egyptian capital Thebes. See the Luxor and Karnak temples, the vast columns of the Hypostyle Hall, and the awe-inspiring Valley of the Kings - where Tutankhamun's tomb was uncovered in 1922.
Another unforgettable excursion can be taken from the Jordanian resort of Aqaba to the oasis of Wadi Musa. It's the site of the 'Rose Red' City of Petra, famously carved out of the sandstone. The excursion to the 'long-lost' city also takes in Wadi Rum's mesmerising desert landscape.
Passage through the world's most famous - and busiest - waterway, the Suez Canal, returns Magellan to the Mediterranean, where a quintet of calls brings the opportunity to discover more wonders in the spring warmth.
Another extraordinary day awaits as Magellan ties up in Ashdod, gateway to Israel and the Holy Land. Explore or join a shore excursion, perhaps to the coastal resort of Tel Aviv, with its ancient neighbour Jaffa. Alternatively discover the 'Wailing Wall', the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Mount of Olives and Jerusalem's other fascinating sites.
A last Mediterranean island call is made in Malta, where the stunning natural Grand Harbour of Valletta is one of the Mediterranean's most strategically important anchorages. Explore the surrounding streets, or head into the rugged interior, perhaps to the haunting 'Silent City' of Mdina.
'More-British-than-Britain' Gibraltar brings a first real taste of home as you stroll past Main Street's familiar shops and stores, or perhaps take the cable-car to the top of the Rock. Look out across the straits for stupendous views to Africa.
The ship's final call - perhaps appropriately - is in the great city of Lisbon. Like you, many a historical adventurer returned here after their far-flung voyages. A last shore excursion will introduce the Portuguese capital before you begin your passage home.
Magellan arrives back in Tilbury today, at the end of an amazing voyage.
