Day One: Depart Newcastle
Board Magellan in Newcastle, today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Day Two: Dundee
Today Magellan calls at the Tayside port-city of Dundee. Explore this historic city, and perhaps visit Captain Scott's Royal Research Ship Discovery - a beautifully restored example of the days when maritime adventures were less luxurious affairs.
Day Three: Kirkwall
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.
Day Four: At sea
Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.
Day Five: Tobermory
The small town of Tobermory on the beautiful island of Mull, with its picturesque waterfront of brightly painted buildings, is a delightful place to explore, as is nearby Duart Castle, the famous seat of Clan Maclean.
Day Six: Dublin
Today Magellan arrives in 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.
Day Seven: Cobh
Magellan arrives in Cork's long, narrow harbour at Cobh, this morning. Shore excursions here offer you the chance to discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland, to head into the beautiful rolling countryside to fashionable Kinsale or to visit famous Blarney Castle, just north of the city, for a chance to kiss the Blarney Stone.
Day Eight: St Mary's
This morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Magellan anchors here in sheltered waters, giving you the opportunity to go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond, and stunning Tresco, where the famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest subtropical plant collection.
Day Nine: St Peter Port
Guernsey's St Peter Port welcomes us this morning. See 800-year-old Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, wander the cobbled central quarter and make the most of the island's tax-free shopping.
Day 10: The River Seine and Rouen
Today Magellan navigates into the heart of Normandy - heading to the ancient city of Rouen. We'll spend the rest of the day here, giving you the chance to explore. See the Place du Vieux-Marche, site of Saint Joan's martyrdom, the famous one-handed mechanical clock and the stunning Gothic cathedral.
Day 11: At sea
Make the most of your final day on board as Magellan cruises to Newcastle and home.
Day 12: Arrive Newcastle
Bid farewell to Magellan and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
