Join Magellan in Liverpool, before she sets sail this evening.
Magellan's first point of call is delightful Dublin, the incomparable Irish capital - once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift. Relax in one of the city's many bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops, or shop on Grafton and O'Connell Streets as you get to know the city.
Enjoy a relaxing day at sea, getting to know your ship and your fellow passengers.
Today, Magellan docks in Kirkwall, the historic capital of Orkney. Perhaps visit its magnificent centrepiece, St Magnus Cathedral. A mile away are the waters of fabled Scapa Flow, where HMS Royal Oak sank in WW2. Optional shore excursions will include highlights of the island's unique mix of history, archaeology, crafts and wildlife.
Today's destination is Kollafjordur, in the Danish outpost of the Faroes. Step ashore to explore this remote settlement, with its ancient, turf-roofed church, and don't miss the opportunity to visit the tiny island capital, Torshavn. The islands' inhabitants are guardians of a deep-rooted Norse tradition and live surrounded by natural beauty in this birdwatcher's paradise.
Today finds Magellan in the stunning natural harbour of Seydisfjordur, one of Iceland's most beautiful coastal locations. The town's pretty, Norwegian-style houses are backed by high mountains, and from here ferries and a sub-ocean telephone cable connect Iceland to the outside world. The town is known as the cultural capital of east Iceland, and is gateway to yet more breathtaking countryside.
The next Icelandic port of call is Akureyri, on the rugged north coast, where the summer days are longest of all. The area beyond this thriving winter resort is wondrously scenic, with the thundering Godafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn both nearby.
This morning Magellan arrives in tiny, exquisite Isafjordur, the capital of the Westfjords area. Visit the replica Viking farmstead at Eiriksstadir, once home of Eirik the Red (who left it to settle Greenland) and birthplace of Leif the Lucky, who discovered America. Experience a treasure trove of natural wonders such as the glacier on mystical Snaefellsjokull, which is Iceland's newest national park.
Today Magellan docks in the world's northernmost capital, the fascinating city of Reykjavik. Step ashore to spend two days exploring, perhaps taking the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visiting the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum. Witness geothermal activity at the famous Blue Lagoon Pool and at the original Geysir - after which all others are named.
Relax as Magellan spends the day at sea to begin her return journey.
Enjoy a last day at sea with your fellow passengers.
Magellan arrives back in Liverpool this morning, at the end of a wonderful Iceland cruise.
