Itinerary

Day 1

Depart Liverpool
Depart: 1800hrs Board Magellan in Liverpool, today, settle in to your cabin and relax as your cruise begins.

Day 2

At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.

Day 3

Torshavn, Faroes
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 0700hrs (Day Four) Tiny, Toytown-like Torshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands. Explore its confusion of lanes, narrow passages and black-tarred houses with green turf on the roofs, or join an excursion, perhaps to cross the famous Bridge across the Atlantic connecting the main island of Streymoy with the spectacular scenery and ancient wooden churches of smaller Eysturoy.

Day 4

Klaksvik, Faroes
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 1800hrs After a morning spent cruising through the Faroe Islands, Magellan calls in Klaksvik, capital of the Nordoyar (the six north-easternmost Faroes). Many of the inhabitants of this remote Danish outpost are direct descendants of the Vikings, and still speak an ancient Norse language. Sheltered by conical mountains, Klaksvik is surrounded by a birdwatcher’s paradise of green meadows that you’ll be able to explore on today’s optional shore excursion.

Day 5

At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.

Day 6

Akureyri, Iceland
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 1700hrs Your first Icelandic port of call is Akureyri, on the rugged north coast. The area beyond this thriving winter resort is wondrously scenic, with the thundering Godafoss Falls and volcanic Lake Myvatn both nearby.

Days 7 to 9

Reykjavik, Iceland
Arrive: 1800hrs (Day Seven) Depart: 1800hrs (Day Nine) After a day sailing along the Icelandic coast, Magellan docks in the world's northernmost capital, the fascinating city of Reykjavik, this evening. Step ashore to spend the next few days exploring, perhaps taking the lift to the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church for a panoramic view, or visiting the fascinating Arbaer Folk Museum and the Saga Museum. Witness geothermal activity at the famous Blue Lagoon Pool and at the original Geysir - after which all others are named.

Days 10-11

At sea
Spend two days relaxing on board.

Day 12

Belfast, Northern Ireland
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 2100hrs This morning, Magellan arrives in historic Belfast. Explore the city centre, visit the Titanic Quarter to see the exhibitions that pay homage to the ill-fated vessel, or join an optional excursion to the vast stone staircase of the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim Coast beyond.

Day 13

Dublin, Ireland
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 2130hrs Magellan's last point of call is delightful Dublin, the incomparable Irish capital - once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift. Relax in one of the city's many bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops, or shop on Grafton and O'Connell Streets as you get to know the city.

Day 14

Arrive Liverpool
Arrive: 0800hrs Say goodbye to Magellan, her crew and your fellow passengers as she arrives in Liverpool, today, and you disembark at the end of a wonderful cruise. Back to top
