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.
Honfleur lies at the mouth of the River Seine, and is gateway to the glorious Normandy countryside. Explore this favourite retreat of the French Impressionists, with its harbour surrounded by gabled houses. Perhaps venture further afield on an excursion to Monet's idyllic house and garden at Giverny or to fashionable Deauville.
Guernsey's delightful St Peter Port welcomes Magellan this morning. Spend the day exploring this beautiful Channel Isle - see Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, and the medieval, cobbled central quarter of St Peter Port, where countless shops and colourful stalls offer the chance to indulge in some tax-free shopping.
This morning finds us in the fabled Isles of Scilly, where you can go ashore by tender to explore tiny Hugh Town on St Mary's, and the flower-strewn byways beyond. You'll also have the chance to take an excursion to stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest sub-tropical plant collection.
Today finds Magellan in Dublin. The cultured Irish capital - once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift - is one of Europe's most engaging cities. See Trinity College, shop your way along Grafton and O'Connell Streets, and relax in one of the city's famous bars and pubs.
Magellan calls at the great city of Belfast today. Explore the historic city centre with its great buildings - including City Hall, Stormont Castle, Queen's University and monumental St Anne's Cathedral - and the extraordinary Belfast Titanic Quarter. You may like to join an optional excursion to the wild Antrim coast, where you'll discover the fascinating Giant's Causeway.
Arriving in the Scottish port of Greenock, you might join an excursion to one of two famous and fascinating cities. In Edinburgh, explore the Royal Mile, shop in Princes Street or take in city views from the ancient Castle's ramparts. In Glasgow, discover 'Scotland's style capital' with its culture, architecture and design.
The beautiful island of Mull offers breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and a spectacular coastline. The small town of Tobermory, with its picturesque, multi-coloured houses encircling the waterfront, is a delightful place to explore - as is nearby Duart Castle, the famous seat of Clan Maclean.
The tiny harbour of Portree, on the sheltered eastern coast of the mystic Isle of Skye, is gateway to a rugged land of windswept moors, the great Cuillin 'Hills' and a coast teeming with wildlife. Historic Dunvegan Castle, the world's longest continuously inhabited fortress, can be explored on a shore excursion this afternoon.
Today Magellan arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
