Magellan was originally built in 1985 and in 2010 underwent an amazing 55 million Euro upgrade and refit. An impressive cruise liner, Magellan retains many traditional aspects while also introducing a stylish contemporary twist.
Cruise and Maritime's fleet offer a more leisurely and traditional 'home from home' country house style of cruising with the emphasis very much on personal service and going that extra mile meaning you can enjoy every moment of your cruising experience.
In 2015 Magellan became the proud new flagship of the CMV fleet and, like Marco Polo and Astoria, operates as an adult friendly ship.
Megellan carries about 1250 passengers accommodated in 726 cabins spanning nine passenger decks serviced by eight lifts. This cruise ship's wide corridors, stairways and expansive deck areas exude a real feeling of spaciousness. Her wide range of comfortable well appointed lounges and panoramic seating and observation areas are ideally suited to Cruise and Maritime's 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 onboard facilities. However, this cruise ship 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!
Magellan’s home port is London Tilbury but in the spring she will also sail from Newcastle Tyne and Dundee. The summer programme will visit Norway’s Fjordland, the British Isles, Iceland & Northern Isles, Baltic Cities & St Petersburg and the Canary Islands & Madeira.
In winter 2016/17, Magellan features festive cruises to Christmas Markets and a Christmas & New Year cruise to the Canaries & Madeira. On 5th January 2017, Magellan sets sail on her Grand Maiden Round the World Cruise – the ultimate voyage of a lifetime visiting 43 amazing ports of call.
CMV Magellan has 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? Magellan's resident musicians invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy conversation with new friends about another wonderful day ashore.
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.
Magellan's maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf or Kensington Restaurants where 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. 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!
