Discover the icy expanse of the Briksdal Glacier, Hardangerfjord's gleaming waters, vast Sognefjord, and (relatively) tiny Geirangerfjord, as Magellan cruises into some of Norway's most astonishing and tranquil scenery. Join us in Liverpool to begin a voyage that will also reveal Norway's charming second city, Bergen, the lively Irish capital, Dublin, and the remote island charms of Lerwick in the Shetland Isles.
Magellan is normally a child-free ship, but this cruise is offered to passengers of all ages over six months, giving you the chance to share an unforgettable voyage with your children and grandchildren.

Day 1Depart Liverpool
Depart: 2000hrs Board Magellan in Liverpool today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.
Day 2Dublin, 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.

Day 4Lerwick, Shetland Islands
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1600hrs Our 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 5Bergen, Norway
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 1800hrs Compact and friendly, Bergen was once a great trading city within the Hanseatic League. It remains Norway's second city and, despite being sheltered from the sea by its seven hills and outlying islands, is unashamedly nautical in outlook. Visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.
Day 6Olden, Nordfjord, Norway
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 1800hrs Today you’ll call at Olden. This tiny village of clapbpoard houses and rolling green pastures is the starting point for an excursion, through scenic countryside, to the famous Briksdal Glacier. This immense frozen cliff is actually just one of the 50 arms of the Jostedal Glacier, which covers almost 200 square miles of the surrounding landscape in an vast, slowly shifting blanket of ice.
Day 7Geirangerfjord, Norway
Arrive: 0800hrs Depart: 1600hrs Exquisite Geirangerfjord is one of the smaller fjords, but is undeniably among the most beautiful. Today Magellan cruises its twists and turns through a landscape marked by crashing waterfalls and ancient villages like Hellesylt and Geiranger. Disembark in Geiranger to take in the beauty of it all, or to enjoy an optional excursion.
Day 8Flam and Sognefjord, Norway
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 1900hrs The tiny village of Flam, at the inner end of Aurlandsfjord, welcomes Magellan today. Here you'll have the chance to board the world-famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway for the journey to Myrdal. Later this afternoon, the ship navigates her way into stunning Naeroyfjord where some of fjordland's prettiest scenery awaits.
Day 9Eidfjord and Hardangerfjord, Norway
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 1900hrs Enjoy spectacular scenery as Magellan cruises through the 100km-long Hardangerfjord to Eidfjord. Here you can go ashore to enjoy an optional excursion through the beautiful surrounding countryside, perhaps taking in the famous Voringfossen waterfalls.
Day 10Stavanger, Norway
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1400hrs The prosperous former fishing capital of Stavanger, its sleek modern buildings (especially the striking Norwegian Petroleum Museum) contrasting with the white-painted, clapboard houses of its waterfront and old town, is Magellan’s final Norwegian landfall. Step ashore to wander before we enjoy the breathtaking passage though Lysefjord, where the towering Preikestolen rock formation soars above the waters.
Day 11At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.
Day 12Arrive Liverpool
