Board Magellan in Liverpool before she sets sail this evening.
Today finds Magellan in Dublin, the incomparable Irish capital. This engaging, vibrant city was home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, and was the birthplace of Shaw. It is also the site of Trinity College, Dublin. Enjoy rich culture, Grafton and O'Connell Streets packed with shoppers, and perhaps a stop in one of the cafes and coffee shops, or the famous bars and pubs.
Today is spent at sea, getting to know your fellow passengers and enjoying life on board as you sail south.
Magellan calls at the historic port of A Coruna, or La Coruna. It was from here that ill-fated Spanish Armada set sail, but today it is a lively port with a thriving fishing industry. Step ashore to explore the atmospheric medieval quarter, or stroll the seafront.
Spend another lazy day at sea, hopefully relaxing in the sun.
Ancient Cadiz, with its elegant squares, great cathedral and wonderful Botanical Garden, is a fascinating city. Step ashore to explore or to join today's optional excursions which will include a trip to Seville (the Cradle of Flamenco) with its sumptuous cathedral, famous bell tower, wonderful Alcazar and bullring.
Spend today in the very British outpost of Gibraltar, in the shadow of the famous Rock. Search out a bargain in Main Street, and take a cable car to the heights above to see the famous Barbary Apes, and the views across the Straits to North Africa and the Atlas Mountains.
The Portuguese capital, Lisbon, is Magellan's next port of call. See the contrasts between historic architecture and striking modern buildings in this city from which adventurers set out, in search of the New World, during the great Age of Exploration.
The Portuguese port of Leixoes gives you the chance to step ashore, perhaps to join this afternoon's excursion to the historic city of Oporto in its pretty setting on the River Douro. The excursion will include a visit to one of the Port wine lodges, and also time for sightseeing - why not take a cruise along the Douro to complete your visit?
Magellan spends another day at sea, as she makes her way north towards France.
Today, Magellan reaches the port of La Pallice, situated in the beautiful seaside resort of La Rochelle. Step ashore to stroll through La Rochelle's pedestrianised centre, where attractive 17th- and 18th- century architecture lines the pretty streets.
Enjoy your final day relaxing on board as Magellan makes her return journey to Liverpool.
Disembark in Liverpool after a wonderful, sunny voyage.
