Full Itinerary

Day One

Board Magellan in Dundee today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Three

Stylish Copenhagen, home to the famous Tivoli Gardens and forever associated with Hans Christian Andersen, is a marvellous city. Join the optional shore excursion to discover the world famous Little Mermaid, the Royal Palace and the grand stores that line the Stroget.

Day Four

This morning Magellan arrives in Warnemund. Discover the port's charming gabled houses and historic Neuer Markt, or join the optional excursion to Berlin to discover the city's highlights - from the Brandenburg Gate and the 1926 Olympic Stadium to Hitler's Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie.

Day Five

Relax on board as Magellan spends another day at sea.

Day Six

Today we'll arrive in beautiful Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital with its perfectly preserved old town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.

Days Seven and Eight

Magellan will spend two days in St Petersburg, one of the world's most glorious cities. Explore its incomparable Hermitage Museum, stroll down its wide canal-side boulevards, and soak up the modern 'European' atmosphere. You'll have the chance to explore the city's Haymarket, familiar from scenes in Dostoyevsky's novels, to gaze in awe at the opulence of the Marinsky Theatre, home to the world-renowned Kirov Ballet, and to visit the famous Summer Palace at Petrodvorets.

Day Nine

Step ashore to explore Helsinki, Finland's elegant capital. Explore the harbour-side fish market, take a stroll in nearby Esplanade Park, and don't miss the monumental neo-Classical buildings of stunning Senate Square, which have played the part of Moscow in many Cold War movies.

Day 11

Relax on board as Magellan spends another day at sea.

Day 10

This morning, Magellan passes through the many islands surrounding the Swedish capital, Stockholm. This 'island city' offers a wonderful mix of historic sights and lovely parks, and is best explored on foot - particularly its ancient heart, Gamla Stan, a labyrinth of cobbled streets lined with shops, cafes and restaurants.

Day 13

Another day is spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories your cruise holiday as Magellan heads for home.

Day 12

Our final Danish port is Aalborg. Explore the old town's 17th-century castle and painted buildings, or join an optional excursion to the Viking burial site at Lindholm Hoje. Aalborg is also the home of Aquavit, and a visit to the distillery and museum provides another enjoyable diversion.

Day 14

Magellan arrives in Newcastle, where some passengers will disembark. You'll then continue on the last leg of your voyage.

Day 15

Bid farewell to Magellan and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.

Kirknewton Couple
Enjoyable cruise all round, nice pleasant crew and the food was good with lots to choose from, The ports of call were very interesting, lots to see. The people on the cruise were the main part of our enjoyment mainly from New castle and Dundee and no children a Grandparents paradise. No parking area in Dundee Port was the only drawback otherwise we both would recommend this cruise.

Love the ship. A hiccup with seating at dinner, but successfully resolved. Food excellent, buffet very busy but used restaurants instead for every meal which suited us better. Good entertainment and enjoyed the quizzes.

This was our first cruise, and we were very pleasantly surprised. We found our cabin roomy and comfortable, the service very good - especially in the restaurant. We did not enjoy Raffles bistro so much, but that was the nature of the self service there and no reflection on the quality of the food. We did four excursions, all of which we really enjoyed - especially the Hermitage museum in St Petersburg, where we got early access and so got in before huge crowds arrived (well done CMV!). There were a few people who appeared to complain about things the company had no control over - and even about the food, which was always well prepared and delicious, and beautifully served. Cleanliness was scrupulous on the Magellan. We found embarkation and disembarkation efficient and painless, and we would certainly cruise again!
