Full Itinerary

Day One

Step aboard your cruise ship, Magellan, and settle into your welcoming cabin before the ship sails from London Tilbury.

Day Two

Your first port of call is a visit to friendly Amsterdam, with its canals, step-gabled buildings and fascinating museums.

Days Three to Five

Three days are spent at sea, offering the chance to relax and enjoy the many amenities aboard your new floating home.

Day Six

This morning, Magellan arrives at the tiny British territory of Gibraltar. Explore the very British Main Street, and ride the cable car to the summit of the famous Rock. Take in the tremendous views out to Morocco's Atlas Mountains and meet the famously mischievous Barbary Apes.

Day Seven

Enjoy a restful day at sea.

Day Eight

Today Magellan ties up in the Canaries' great trading port of Las Palmas, gateway to Gran Canaria. Step ashore to explore the bustling metropolis of modern Puerto de la Luz, or head to the palm-fringed squares of the old town, Vegueta, and perhaps take a shore excursion inland for some superb views.

Day Nine

Our next Canaries' calls is Arrecife, capital of Lanzarote, sun-baked and colourful holiday isle. Its black sand beaches fringe warm waters, and a visit here offers the chance to head to 'fire mountain' and the opportunity to take a camel ride to the edge of a volcano!

Day 10

Today is spent on the largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife. Magellan will dock in the principal port of Santa Cruz.

Optional excursions will let you discover the land that boasts 'the whole world in one day' - from a swim in warm waters to throwing snowballs on the slopes of Mt Teide, and from the glitz of the capital's shopping malls to stunning gardens, banana plantations, forests of giant pines and eucalyptus trees.

Day 11

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 the island capital, Funchal, visit the wonderful Botanical Gardens, and perhaps race downhill from Monte to Livramento in a wickerwork 'toboggan'!

Day 12

Another day is spent at sea.

Day 13

Magellan calls at the historic Portuguese capital Lisbon, from where adventurers set out in search of the New World during the great Age of Exploration. A shore excursion today will introduce the city - including the Alfama district, where time seems to stand still.

Days 14-15

Relax aboard ship as you spend leisurely days at sea.

Day 16

Magellan arrives back in Tilbury at the end of a wonderful cruise.

Accommodation

Magellan

At 46,000-tonnes and with a passenger complement of around 1100, spacious Magellan retains a sense of traditional cruising and small-ship intimacy, thanks to the beautiful layout and tasteful contemporary style of her public areas, and of course the presence of her friendly, welcoming crew and cruise staff. A major refit in 2010 has ensured her position as a thoroughly modern, bright and supremely comfortable floating home, and she is a hugely welcome addition to the fleet.

Passenger accommodation is arranged on nine spacious decks served by eight lifts, wide corridors and stairways. Extensive teak decking adds to sense of spaciousness, and in addition to the extensive outdoor areas, there are several beautifully appointed lounges boasting panoramic picture windows. Two beautifully appointed dining rooms, the Waldorf and the Kensington, as well as a less formal buffet-style bistro that offers indoor and outdoor dining, will tempt you at mealtimes, and there are three lounge bars and three deck bars where you can while away a convivial hour or two. Other on-board amenities include a night club, a casino and the magnificent, multi-tiered Magellan Show Lounge. For the energetic and body-conscious, Magellan offers a beautifully appointed wellness centre, a gym, two pools and Jacuzzis. A well-stocked shopping gallery, internet centre and library can also be found on board.

Magellan's 15 categories of cabin and suite are graded according to size and position. Each cabin is air-conditioned, and has ample storage space, a safe, a TV, a hairdryer and private facilities with a shower. All ocean-view cabins have picture windows apart from eight Cat 6 cabins and 10 Cat 7 cabins, towards the front of the ship, which have portholes. Suites offer the added comforts of baths, seating areas and private balconies.
