As August ends, Magellan cruises south from Liverpool and across the Channel to Normandy. Join us on board for the chance to discover the gardens and country lanes of the Scilly Isles; wander the medieval, cobbled heart of Guernsey's St Peter Port, where countless shops and colourful stalls offer tax-free shopping; and sail up the River Seine to two charming riverside French cities. Stroll through Rouen's narrow streets to see the magnificent Cathédrale Notre-Dame, the Gros Horloge and the site of Joan of Arc's execution on the Place du Vieux Marche, and call in Le Havre, across the mouth of the Seine from pretty, historic Honfleur.Lazy days spent at sea soaking up the sun, and another soaking up the culture as you explore Dublin's historic streets and squares - and its pubs and bars - round off this delightful August Bank Holiday cruise.

Dublin, Ireland
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1800hrs Magellan's first stop is Dublin. This great city of culture, once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift, is one of Europe's most engaging capitals. Grafton and O'Connell Streets are popular with visitors, as are the city's famous bars and pubs, cafes and coffee shops.

St Peter Port, Guernsey

Day 6

Le Havre, France
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 2100hrs Early this morning, Magellan arrives back at the mouth of the Seine and our final port of call: Le Havre. The striking modern architecture that you'll find everywhere in this historic port is the result of the post-war reconstruction project masterminded by Belgian architect, Auguste Perret, and has led to the city's classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
