This delightful summer cruise from Newcastle offers a wonderful opportunity to explore some of the stunning remote islands off the northern shores of Scotland. Discover the rugged landscapes and hidden treasures of Orkney, Shetland and Skye - as well as the far-flung Danish Faroes and the lively, historic city of Belfast.
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 major refit in 2010 ensure her position as a thoroughly modern, bright and supremely comfortable floating home.

Day OneJoin Magellan in Newcastle, today, ahead of her afternoon sailing.
Day TwoMagellan arrives in Dundee, where you'll have time to step ashore and explore this historic port town. Discover the city's nautical history by visiting Captain Scott's RRS Discovery or the 19th-century warship, HM Frigate Unicorn.
Day ThreeOur next port is the Shetland capital, Lerwick. Spend time exploring this rugged but enchanting town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.
Day FourThe âstretchedâ village of Kollafjordur welcomes Magellan to the Faroes today. Tiny Torshavn is the capital of this cluster of remote islands, home to countless bird species and deep-rooted Norse traditions. On an optional excursion to other islands, you might cross the famous âBridge across the Atlanticâ, which connects the main island, Streymoy, with smaller Eysturoy.
Day FiveToday Magellan arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
Day SixThe Isle of Skye is a wonderful place to explore. Spend the day in picturesque Portree, with its quayside fish 'n' chip shops, or join an excursion and head north, past the Old Man of Storr, to Duntum's Museum of Island Life; west to brooding Dunvegan Castle; south past the spectacular Cuillins; or even across the bridge to mainland Scotland.
Day SevenEarly this morning, Columbus arrives in historic Belfast. Explore the city centre, visit the new Titanic Quarter developments that pay homage to the ill-fated vessel, or join an optional excursion to the vast âstone staircaseâ of the Giantâs Causeway on the Antrim Coast beyond.
