Western Norway's jaw-dropping scenery
This great-value, week-long cruise from Newcastle visits historic Bergen and the fjords of Western Norway in all their majestic glory. Board Magellan for a wonderful cruise holiday full of spectacular scenery.
At 46,000-tonnes and with a passenger complement of around 1100, Magellan retains a sense of traditional cruising and small-ship intimacy thanks to the beautiful layout and tasteful contemporary style of her public areas. Her friendly, welcoming crew and cruise staff, and a 50-million-dollar refit ensure her position as a thoroughly modern, bright and supremely comfortable floating home.

Day OneHead to Newcastle and board Magellan to begin your fjords cruise adventure.
Day TwoToday Magellan reaches Dundee, where you'll have time to step ashore and explore this historic port-side city, perhaps visiting the beautifully-restored RRS Discovery, which recalls the days when maritime adventures were far less luxurious.
Day ThreeRelax on board as Magellan spends the day at sea.
Day FourThe pretty village of Ulvik nestles at the end of its own 'little' fjord at the eastern end of Hardangerfjord. Head inland on an optional excursion when Magellan stops here, re-joining the ship in Eidfjord in the afternoon in time for our second optional shore excursion - to the mighty Voringfossen waterfall.
Day FiveToday Magellan calls at Olden. Take a trip through the almost unimaginably beautiful surrounding countryside to the famous Briksdal Glacier, part of the vast icy mass of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, which broods over the eastern reaches of the fjord.
Day SixOur port today is Bergen - Norway's second city. Wander the cobbled streets and harbour of this vibrant city, past Bryggen's historic wooden warehouses, and perhaps explore the lively fish market or take in the views across the city on a ride on the Floibanen funicular.
Day SevenSpend a final day relaxing on board as Magellan makes her return journey.
Day EightDisembark in Newcastle after a wonderful Fjordland voyage. Back to top
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.Back to top
