Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area by coach we travel to Tilbury where Magellan is docked. Having stepped on board and settled in, get changed and prepare to enjoy yourself. Following welcome cocktails, take your seat in either the Kensington or Waldorf restaurants and enjoy a delicious five course dinner, served with half a bottle of wine per person. Then settle back as the ship's highly acclaimed entertainment team invite you to join them in the Magellan Show Lounge for a glittering and colourful performance followed by the late night cabaret and disco before retiring to your cabin.

Day Two

Following a hearty breakfast, we disembark, board the coach and drive into Central London (about twenty five miles away). Whether you choose to explore the stalls and boutiques of Covent Garden or head to the bustling stores of Oxford Street, High Street Kensington or Knightsbridge you're sure to find some interesting gifts. We leave for the journey home during the mid afternoon.

Magellan 

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.
