Day 3

Copenhagen, Denmark

The largest city in Scandinavia, capital of Denmark for over 600 years and home to the world’s oldest monarchy, Copenhagen is the most charming of Baltic cities. Beautiful parks and gardens, attractive 17th and 18th century buildings, grand castles and the elegant Amalienborg Palace – home to the reigning Queen Margrethe II, grace the city that is laced with a labyrinth of winding canals.

Day 4

Warnemünde for Berlin, Germany

 

Day 5

At Sea

 

Day 6

Tallinn, Estonia

Estonia’s capital is a fascinating mix of Scandinavian sleek, Soviet-era concrete and medieval Hanseatic city. Tumbling down Toompea Hill, the historic Old Town is a maze of narrow, cobblestone streets and alleyways, turrets and spires. Wrapped within the original medieval wall, which is studded with imaginatively named towers, the Castle, onion-domed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Town Hall Square and Gothic Town Hall survive along with the aura of the 14th and 15th centuries.

Days 7 - 8

St. Petersburg, Russia (overnight)

Peter the Great founded St. Petersburg in 1703 as his ‘Window on the West’. Drawing inspiration from Europe, the Russian Tsar and his successors created an extraordinary city on the banks of the River Neva with opulent palaces, ornate churches and splendid parks all part of the supremely elegant architectural ensemble.

Day 9

Helsinki, Finland

Finland’s capital is a vibrant, modern city, yet very much in harmony with the surrounding nature. Its centrepiece is the majestic Senate Square lined with elegant neo-classical buildings and the impressive Lutheran Cathedral with white Corinthian columns and five green cupolas. A striking exception to Helsinki’s general architectural style is the Russian Orthodox, onion-domed Uspenski Cathedral, which stands on a hill at the end of Market Square and dominates the city skyline.

Day 10

Nynashamn for Stockholm, Sweden

Lying on the southern tip of Södertörn, Nynäshamn only took shape in 1898 with the start of the building of the Nynäsbanan railway, which connected the then Parish of Ösmo with Stockholm. Today’s modern town is a gateway to Sweden’s 700-year old capital and optional excursions feature the highlights of the city often described as ‘beauty on water’.

Welcome aboard Magellan

At a glance....

  • 3 restaurants
  • 5 bars and lounges
  • Card Room and Library
  • Wellness Centre
  • 2 swimming pools
  • 3 whirlpools

In 2015 Magellan was welcomed as part of the CMV fleet and like the Marco Polo and Azores will operate as an adult friendly ship, although the ship does offer ‘multi generational cruises’ (which allows kids) on selected sailings. At 46,052grt she will carry about 1250 passengers accommodated in 726 cabins spanning eight passenger decks serviced by eight lifts. Her wide corridors and stairways and expansive deck areas with wood type decking in many areas exude a real feeling of spaciousness with a wide range of comfortable well appointed lounges and panoramic seating and observation areas ideally suited to our scenic cruise programme. Combining expansive, comfortable surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, Magellan is the perfect choice for those looking for a greater range of on board facilities. However, she still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the ‘mega’ resort style ships built today. No climbing walls or ice-skating rinks and no kids!

Restaurants

  • Waldorf or Kensington Restaurants: you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise. Whilst breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the restaurant on an open seating basis, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner in the evening.
  • Raffles Bistro: As a casual alternative, the light and airy Raffles Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. Here informality is the key and you can feel free to drop in without any ceremony. The Pool Deck lends itself particularly well to al fresco meals so a buffet breakfast or lunch from the Bistro can be served up with a complimentary ocean view!

Bars and lounges

Why not settle down and enjoy wonderful panoramic ocean views from the comfortable lounge areas along the mall on the Magellan Deck, or relax in a secluded corner of the delightful Hamptons Lounge Bar where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink. At the very heart of Magellan is the stylish Captain’s Club, a popular place to meet fellow passengers. To start your evening you might opt for a pre-dinner drink here and enjoy a few of your favourite melodies. After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the two-tier, Magellan theatre-style Show Lounge as our talented show team display their talents in a glittering ‘big-show’. Enjoy more evening entertainment in Sinatra’s, the Captain’s Club and Hampton’s or enjoy a drink in the Taverner’s Pub.

Entertainment

Our ships have some great entertainment on board, from show teams to pianists to disco. Why not start your evening with a pre-dinner drink and enjoy some of your favourite melodies? Our resident musicians invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy conversation with new friends about another wonderful day ashore.

Other Facilities

How about a few hands of cards in the Card Room? Or immerse yourself in a good book from the well-stocked Livingstone Library. Then, browse through the shopping gallaria and photo gallery for a few memories to take home of your time on board Magellan.

Out on Deck

There are two outdoor swimming pools plus three whirlpools together with expansive deck areas for that daily exercise, relaxation and viewing or a romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.
