This summer cruise from Liverpool offers up a rare opportunity to see some of Europe's most enchanting gardens and to enjoy the relaxed rhythmns of life on board Magellan. Wander the restored Victorian elegance of the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin, and the to the palm-lined pathways of Tresco's glorious Abbey Gardens, and perhaps join a shore excursion to Giverny to discover the tranquil lily ponds of Monet's iconic gardens as Magellan cruises down the green meanders of the River Seine.
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 OneBoard Magellan in Liverpool today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Day TwoMagellan'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.
Day ThreeThis morning finds us in the Isles of Scilly. Magellan anchors here in sheltered waters, giving you the opportunity to go ashore to explore Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-strewn byways beyond, and stunning Tresco, where the famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest subtropical plant collection.
Day FourGuernsey's St Peter Port welcomes us this morning. See 800-year-old Castle Cornet, which guards the entrance to the harbour, wander the cobbled central quarter and make the most of the island's tax-free shopping.
Day FiveToday Magellan navigates into the heart of Normandy - heading to the ancient city of Rouen. We'll spend the rest of the day here, giving you the chance to explore. See the Place du Vieux-Marche, site of Saint Joan's martyrdom, the famous one-handed mechanical clock and the stunning Gothic cathedral.
Day SixOur final port of call is Honfleur at the mouth of the Seine. Wander the streets behind the pretty harbour, or perhaps join an optional excursion to Monet's delightful house and gardens at Giverny.
Day SevenMake the most of your final day aboard Magellan as she cruises back towards Liverpool.
Day EightBid farewell to Magellan and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise. Back to top
