Along with the Marco Polo and Azores, the Magellan cruise ship operates as an ‘adult friendly’ ship and appeals mainly to the over 50's category.
Magellan is newly refitted in the traditional and elegant style of the cruise line and sails under the name of Cruise and Maritime Voyages.
Able to comfortably hold over 1,200 guests, Magellan is one of the larger ships operated by the line and consists of 9 passenger decks. Because of this the ship has a fantastic feeling of spaciousness and with vast wooden decks, there is always a nook or cranny to get away from it all, lie back, and enjoy the sunshine.
As the cruise line’s flagship, Magellan can safely boast its facilities and amenities – there is a host of entertainment available for passengers to enjoy while sailing from port to port.
The Wellness Centre offers an enormous range of spa treatments for passengers to pick and choose from, essentially designing their ideal spa day. Work up a sweat in the gym or couple your spa days with a few lengths in one of the two outdoor swimming pools or merely a dip in one of three whirlpools and you’ve created a day of pure body and spirit harmony.
For those guests who enjoy less energetic activities, the Magellan CMV Club Class, located within the wonderful ships library, offers a great distraction through the art of card and bridge games. Here, you will be paired up with like-minded passengers in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
There are guests speakers available – generally, these are scheduled during days at sea to ensure that all passengers are around to enjoy them – to give passionate talks on their subject matter of interest. Select cruises also feature ‘An Audience With…’ where guest speakers and performers elucidate on their lives, loves and losses – with time for audience questions.
Selected cruises will offer ‘A Laugh on the Ocean Waves’, a comedy club which has been birthed following huge success from comedic guest acts.
After a tasty evening meal, relax with a drink in the comfortable Show Lounge, where resident and guest entertainment acts complement talented musicians to create a night worth remembering!

Magellan has two main restaurants, the Waldorf or Kinsington, which offer a formal dining experience complete with maitre’d and waiting staff, while a more casual dining option involves the Raffles Bistro, which is buffet style for breakfast, lunch and dinner – ideal for those who don’t like sticking to set dining times! Al fresco meals can also be taken – weather dependent! – on the Pool Deck for breakfast and lunch. Where ever you dine, Cruise and Maritime Voyages offer delicious, freshly made meals.
Lounges found on the Magellan Deck offer fantastic panoramic views, while the Captain’s Club – a stylish meeting point – is highly popular for pre-dinner drinks and music.
