Ship Information

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: Depart Liverpool

Board Columbus in Liverpool today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two: Dublin

Magellan's first stop is Dublin. This great city of culture, once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, is one of Europe's most engaging capitals. Grafton and O'Connell Streets are popular with visitors, as are the city's famous bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops.

Days Three and Four: At sea

Spend two days relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers as Magellan cruises north.

Day Five: Reykjavik

Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital. Its brightly painted wooden buildings contrast sharply with the stunning beauty of its setting beneath Mount Ejsa. Step ashore to explore, take the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visit the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum.

Day Six: Isafjordur

This morning Magellan arrives in tiny, exquisite Isafjordur, the capital of the Westfjords area, and gateway to the magical, mystical land of West Iceland from which Norse sailors set out to discover Greenland and the New World.

Day Seven: Akureyri

Akureyri, on Iceland's rugged north coast, is a thriving winter sports centre and home to a fascinating Botanical Garden. The area beyond is wondrously scenic, and today's excursion, to the Godafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn, will highlight many of its delights.

Day Eight: At sea

Relax on board and relive the memories your cruise around Iceland as Magellan spends another day at sea.

Day Nine: Klaksvik

Magellan makes a rare call in Klaksvik, capital of the Nordoyar (the six northeasternmost Faroe Isles). Many of the inhabitants of this remote Danish outpost are direct descendants of the Vikings, and still speak an ancient Norse language. Sheltered by conical mountains, Klaksvik is surrounded by a birdwatcher’s paradise of green meadows that you’ll be able to explore on today’s optional shore excursion. This evening Magellan sails on to dock in Torshavn for the night.

Day 10: Torshavn

Torshavn, the tiny capital of the Danish Faroe Islands, is Magellan's destination today. The Faroes are a birdwatchers’ paradise in the heart of the Gulf Stream, and their inhabitants live surrounded by natural beauty. Discover Torshavn’s confusion of lanes and narrow passages, black-tarred houses with turf roofs and modern centre, or join an excursion to another part of the islands, perhaps crossing the famous ‘Bridge across the Atlantic’, which connects the main island of Streymoy with smaller Eysturoy.

Day 11: At sea

Make the most of your final day aboard Magellan as she cruises back towards Liverpool.

Day 12: Arrive Liverpool

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