Spend a relaxing Spring Bank Holiday aboard sleek Magellan as she sails out of Newcastle and around Britain, making several fascinating calls en route to Normandy. Pretty Tobermory on Mull, ‘Joan of Arc city’ Rouen and the sun-kissed Isles of Scilly are amongst the highlights of this truly wonderful cruise.

Call first at Dundee, and then head north to the remote Orkney Islands, calling at rugged capital Kirkwall, and then the Isle of Mull. Historic Belfast is your next port-of-call, before continuing south to County Cork port Ringaskiddy, and the sun-kissed Scilly Isles and St Peter’s Port on Guernsey, Britain’s southernmost outpost. Cross the Channel to join the Seine and follow its meandering path to medieval Rouen, with its beautifully restored city centre, the final call of this excellent ‘Round Britain’ voyage.
