Chose to cruise the Fjords for 7 days. After reading reviews was not expecting the ship to be up to much, but to our surprise it was a lot better than reviews we had read, having been on P&O, Royal Caribbean cruises ...

Norwegian fjords

The embarkation at Newcastle was seamless we were in our cabin 30 minutes after getting to the port with our luggage delivered to the cabin. The ship is getting on but is spotlessly clean. We had an inside ...

As a first time cruiser I was unsure what to expect, Magellan is an older ship but was scrupulously clean and very comfortable. I had read many varied reviews before the cruise and have to agree that some ...

Old ship and poor food

Chose the Cruise because I could board at Liverpool. I was very disappointed with the poor choice of food in Raffles buffet at breakfast and lunchtime. It was very difficult to find a seat to eat a meal since it is ...

This ship has plumbing problems

The Fjords are stunning, but the Magellan leaves a lot to be desired. Principally, the sewage system seems to be in permanent difficulty. We were by no means the only people to have to call for someone to fix the ...

Great Cruise for Under £700

First cruise ever, so we were a little apprehensive. But as the Magellan ship is a small/medium size it is a good choice for a first cruise. Embarking at Newcastle was great and very easy. The steward met us and ...

GOOD SHIP MAGELLAN

We have just returned from an autumn Fjords cruise on Magallen. We are over 60s and quite difficult to please so I would like to dispel all the negative comments about this ship. We really enjoyed our cruise due to ...

Great Value Trip

I paid under £600 for two people for this trip. Where else could a couple spend £100 per night full board, with entertainment and travel to the beautiful ffords? The Magellan is not the Ventura or similar so ...
