At 46,000-tonnes and with a passenger complement of around 1100, Magellan retains a sense of traditional cruising and small-ship intimacy thanks to the beautiful layout and tasteful contemporary style of her public areas. Her friendly, welcoming crew and cruise staff, and a major refit in 2010 ensure her position as a thoroughly modern, bright and supremely comfortable floating home.

Full Itinerary

Day One

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

Day Two

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.

Day Three

Today will be spent at sea, giving you the opportunity to acquaint yourselves with Magellan's many facilities.

Day Four

Alesund, with its natural harbours lined by pastel-painted, gabled and turreted buildings, is a beautiful first port of call. Don't miss the fascinating Sunnmore Museum, which offers insight into life in this part of the world through the ages, and boasts a fine boat collection.

Day Five

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

Day Six

The largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle, Tromso, its magnificent cathedral rising grandly from its bustling centre, is our port of call today. Step ashore to explore its daily market and fascinating Polarmuseum, which chronicles the lives and exploits of the likes of Amundsen and Nansen.

Days Seven and Eight

Magellan spends two days at our northernmost port of call, remote Alta. Sky-gaze at your leisure (the Northern Lights are at their most astounding here), and explore the Arctic region of Finnmark, home to the Sami people, the prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft and the famous Ice Hotel, on one of the exciting optional excursions.

Day Nine

Magellan docks in the pretty, remote village of Honningsvaag. Enjoy an optional excursion to the famous visitor centre at Nordkapp, or North Cape, close to Europe's northernmost point.

Day 10

Relax on board as Magellan spends another day at sea.

Day 11

Beautiful Trondheim is dominated by the imposing Nidaros Cathedral. Step ashore to soak up the atmosphere of a city that was once the capital of Viking Norway. Explore the cathedral and the nearby restored Archbishop's Palace, and don't miss the Stiftsgarden, northern Europe's largest wooden building, and now a royal residence.

Day 12

Magellan cruises into beautiful Romsdalsfjord and Andalsnes, today. From here, there's the opportunity to enjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery, and perhaps a chance to visit the famous wooden Rodven stave church in its dreamy setting beside the fjord.

Day 13

This morning Magellan docks in Bergen - an ancient Hanseatic city of cobbled streets and medieval houses, and birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.

Day 14

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

Day 15

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

FELICITY-SUE

Earlston Friends
The Magellan is sorely in need of an overhaul. Cabins in the deck below got flooded. Our cabin was unbearably hot in spite of the so-called air conditioning. Some cabins were bitterly cold. We had to change dinner table one night because the ceiling was leaking and some seats in the Captain's Lounge were cordoned off for the same reason.

The service was superb. All the staff were excellent. The excursions were good on the whole.

In the main it was a very good cruise however there were a few maintenance problems which affected some passengers although I believe these were handled well - the entertainment was quite good especially the individual acts and the lecturer, the on board entertainment staff however could have been better and their handling of daytime quizzes games etc was not of a good quality. The ship I believe may be in need of some TLC
