Atlantic island sunshine

This wonderful cruise from Bristol sees Magellan shake off the gloom and grey of autumn, and head to Portugal, Spain and the sun-kissed mid-Atlantic islands of Madeira and the Canaries. Spend lazy days at sea enjoying the ship's excellent facilities, and step ashore as Magellan calls in La Coruna and Gibraltar, and the contrasting but enchanting cities of Lisbon, Cadiz and Casablanca, as well as southern Ireland's historic centre of commerce, culture and fine food, Cork.

Discover the black-sand beaches and volcanic landscape of Lanzarote, and the space-age curves of the seafront Auditorio in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Explore Madeira's capital, Funchal, or perhaps experience the exhilaration of a wickerwork ’toboggan’ ride from Monte down to Livramento.

  • Arrive: 1100hrs

    Depart: 1900hrs

    Early this morning, Magellan arrives in Cork's long, narrow harbour of Cobh. 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.

  • Spend your first day at sea getting to know Magellan, her crew and her excellent facilities, and making new friends as you settle into the relaxed pace of life on board.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1500hrs

    Magellan's second call is in the historic port La Coruna. Step ashore to explore the atmospheric medieval quarter, stroll the extensive seafront promenade, or perhaps take a shore excursion to the ancient pilrimage site at Santiago de Compostela.

  • Spend the day relaxing as Magellan sails south-west into the Atlantic.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 2400hrs

    Ancient Cadiz, with its elegant squares, great cathedral and wonderful Botanical Garden, is a fascinating city.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1700hrs

    Today Magellan arrives at the tiny British territory of Gibraltar. Explore the very British Main Street, and take the cable car to the summit of the famous Rock - not only for the tremendous views to Morocco's Atlas Mountains, but also to meet the outpost's famously mischievous Barbary Apes.

  • Arrive: 0700hrs

    Depart: 2400hrs

    This morning Magellan docks in Casablanca, forever associated with the film of the same name. Much of the city is now startlingly modern, but you'll find traditional life and traces of its long history in the medina, and gigantic Hassan II Mosque. Visit the wonderful beaches, and make the most of the designer shopping, or perhaps join an unforgettable shore excursion to Marrakech to explore the tiny stores, alleys and hidden courtyards of the souks, and its vast, bustling square, the Djemaa El Fna.

  • Spend today relaxing on board.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 2000hrs

    The first of our Canaries' calls is Arrecife, capital of Lanzarote. Enjoy this sun-baked and colourful holiday isle where black-sand beaches run gently down into warm waters. Why not head to the island's "fire mountain" to take a camel ride to the edge of a volcano?

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1500hrs

    Today is spent on the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife. Magellan will dock in the principal port of Santa Cruz. Discover the land that boasts "the whole world in one day" on optional shore excursions that might take you for a swim in warm waters or to throw snowballs on the slopes of Mt Teide, or from the capital's glitzy shopping malls to stunning gardens, banana plantations and forests of giant pines and eucalyptus trees.

  • Arrive: 0800hrs

    Depart: 1800hrs

    Some 500 miles off the coast of Africa, Madeira is one of the world's most beautiful islands. This sun-blessed subtropical paradise is home to some of the most vibrant and exotic flora on Earth. Relax in Funchal, the island capital, visit the wonderful Botanical Gardens, and perhaps race downhill from Monte to Livramento in a wickerwork 'toboggan'!

  • Relax on board as Magellan spends another day at sea.

  • Arrive: 0700hrs

    Depart: 1800hrs

    Lisbon, the Portuguese capital, is Magellan's final port of call. Wander up through the cobbled streets of the Alfama towards Sao Jorge Castle, relax by the fountain in Rossi Square or follow the shoreline along to where the ornate battlements of the Belem Tower guard the mouth of the River Tagus.

  • The last two days of your cruise are spent at sea, no doubt reliving the memories as Magellan cruises home.

  • Arrive: 1030hrs

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