Atlantic autumn sun

Sail away from November's grey and gloom as Magellan cruises from Bristol to the warmer waters off Portugal and Spain, and out to the sun-kissed mid-Atlantic islands of Madeira, Cape Verde and the Canaries.

Explore Madeira's capital, Funchal, or perhaps experience the exhilarating descent from Monte to Livramento aboard a wickerwork 'toboggan'. Spend three days discovering Fuertaventura, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, and two on Santiago and São Vicente, surrounded by Cape Verde's fascinating mix of East African traditions and colonial culture. You'll also have several lazy days at sea to make the most of Magellan's excellent facilities.

See the space-age curves of Santa Cruz de Tenerife's seafront Auditorio, the mesmerising Moroccan ports of Agadir and Casablanca, oh-so-British Gibraltar, Moorish Cadiz and the historic Spanish fishing port of Vigo on this wonderful Atlantic cruise.

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.

    Depart: 2330hrs

    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.

Stroll the seafront, or join an optional excursion to Santiago de Compostela, destination of pilgrims and arguably the world’s first tourist destination.

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