Board Magellan in Tilbury today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Magellan's first call is Amsterdam. Spend the day exploring canals, flower markets and museums, wander the cobbled streets, or take to the water on a canal cruise.
Today will be spent at sea. Settle into the shipboard routine of rest and relaxation and make use of Magellan's many amenities.
Tiny, Toytown-like Torshavn is the capital of the remote Faroe Islands. A birdwatcher's paradise, the islands are home to countless species, and its inhabitants are guardians of a deep-rooted Norse tradition. Explore Torshavn's confusion of lanes and narrow passages, or join an excursion to other parts of the islands, perhaps crossing the famous Bridge across the Atlantic connecting the main island of Streymoy with the spectacular scenery and ancient wooden churches of smaller Eysturoy.
A second day at sea brings another chance to relax into the pace of life on board.
Days Six and Seven
Early this morning Astoria arrives Reykjavik. We'll stay overnight in this friendly, fascinating city, and you'll have ample time to wander the city and explore on our optional excursions. Witness geothermal activity at the famous Blue Lagoon Pool and at the original Geysir, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.
After dark, join another optional excursion and - with luck - witness the extraordinary Aurora Borealis in the Icelandic night skies - a sight that has captivated and bewildered generations.
Days Eight and Nine
The next two days are spent relaxing at sea and enjoying life on board.
The Shetland Islands, and their enchanting capital, Lerwick, are home to ancient legends, traditional crafts and an incredible abundance of bird-life. Spend time in the town, or join the excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
Today Magellan docks in Kirkwall, just a mile from the waters of historic Scapa Flow, where the German Fleet was scuttled in 1919, and HMS Royal Oak sank in WW2. Shore excursions will include highlights of this island, where history, archaeology, crafts and wildlife are inextricably intertwined.
Your final full day is spent at sea, no doubt recalling the memories of your voyage.
Bid farewell to Magellan and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
