Ship Information

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.

Detailed Itinerary

All days not listed are spent at sea enjoying the excellent facilities aboard Magellan. Ports of call may be subject to change.

Day One

Board Magellan in vibrant, fun-loving Sydney to begin a wonderful voyage. One of the world's great cities, with its iconic Opera House, Harbour Bridge and famous beaches, it's a wonderful place start to a cruise full of wonderful experiences.

Day Five

Privately owned Hamilton Island is in the paradise of Captain Cook's Whitsundays archipelago (named after the day he arrived in 1770). Here a pretty waterfront awaits, from which boats can be taken to the other islands in the group, and the glass lifts in the resort hotels offer stupendous views.

Day Six

Bustling former gold town Townsville offers the chance to discover the Australian bush and to learn about the regions past at the Museum of Tropical Queensland. The city also lies close to beautiful Magnetic Island, where koala bears can often be seen clinging to the eucalyptus trees.

Days Seven & Eight

Two days in sun-baked Cairns bring opportunities to take a glass-bottomed boat to a coral cay - as this is the stopping-off point for the Great Barrier Reef - or head inland on an excursion to the magnificent tropical rain forest of the Atherton Tablelands.

Day 12

Sail around the Cape York Peninsula, through the Arafura Sea to your final Australian call, Darwin. This typical frontier town offers a shore excursion to the World Heritage Site of the Kakadu National Park, home to swamps, mangroves, salt-water crocodiles and ancient aboriginal art.

Day 15

Today, a first Indonesian island call offers the possibility of seeing the fearsome Monitor Lizard. The legendary giant 'dragons' are found only here and neighbouring Rinca, so join a National Park ranger to explore. Magellan sails this afternoon, heading towards the next paradise isle.

Day 16-17

Magellan stays overnight in Benoa Port. Head ashore by ship's tender and discover the lush beauty of Bali.

Day 19

The fascinating old town and colourful Chinese quarter of Semerang, the former Dutch colonial outpost on Java, radiates charm. Step ashore to explore or to join an optional shore excursion to discover the world's biggest Buddhist shrine, at Borobudur.

Day 22

A cruise through the South China Sea brings you to oil-rich Brunei, with its preserved rainforests and its capital Bandar Seri Begawan. High points include the stupendous Omar Saifuddien Mosque and the Royal Regalia Building (housing the Sultan's priceless treasures), and don't miss the delightful water village at Kampong Ayer.

Day 23

Kota Kinabalu is the idyllic principal settlement of the state of Sabah, close to Malaysia's highest peak. Discover its mix of Chinese, Malay, expatriate European and local cultures, and perhaps take a shore excursion into the interior before Magellan sails on across the South China Sea.

Day 25

Raised from the ruins of WWII, the prosperous capital of the Philippines is a jaw-dropping, cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures. While Old Manila provides an insight to the city's past, and the restored cathedral reflects its status as Asia's largest Christian settlement, reminders of its long-term ties with the west can be seen throughout.

Days 27-28

Two full days in Hong Kong bring lots of opportunities to discover an enthralling metropolis at the end of your cruise adventure. Take in the skyscrapers, Victoria Peak, floating city Aberdeen, the Star Ferry crossing the harbour, or the North Shore's spectacular skyline and buzzing Nathan Road.
