Your Ship

Your cruise is based upon a Full Board Basis

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!

Having boarded Magellan look forward to an evening of sumptuous dining, a glittering show, cabaret and late night disco before making your way the comfort of your cabin. You’ll awake the next day in the elegant city of Antwerp. Explore the Grote Markt with its 16th century guild houses and Flemish Renaissance town hall and admire Antwerp’s towering Gothic cathedral, whose graceful spire dominates the skyline.  Then return to the Magellan for another night on board to party away as you sail back to Tilbury.

Magellan offers a traditional maritime experience in spacious surroundings. Discover a wide range of comfortable lounges and stylish leisure facilities to enrich your time on board.  Her wide range of public facilities include the impressive Waldorf and Kensington Restaurants offering two sitting dining or the more informal Raffles Bistro. There are comfortable lounge areas throughout including the two-tier theatre style Magellan Show Lounge, and a wide range of other amenities. Out on deck, there are two swimming pools, three whirlpools and expansive deck areas.
