A delightful summer cruise
On this wonderful cruise from Liverpool, Magellan sails south to Gibraltar, at the mouth of the Mediterranean, and explores the historic ports of Portugal and Spain. Visit the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, historic La Coruna and Cadiz, where an optional shore excursion brings you the chance to visit the majestic home of flamenco, Seville.
Magellan is normally a child-free ship, but this cruise is offered to passengers of all ages over six months, giving you the chance to share an unforgettable voyage with your children and grandchildren.
