Marvellous Magellan!! We travelled via GLENTON HOLIDAYS - therefore we were picked up from home in a mini-bus form AYRSHIRE and driven to the port of Dundee to join the Magellan. There followed a very slick and quick embarkation and we were in our cabin 55mins later! Service from all staff and crew was excellent, entertainment of a very high standard and plenty of variety. We attended the art class, where a very talented cartoonist gave us some tips and examples of his work. Lectures on whales ect were available, and fruit and vegetable art by the kitchen crew was amazing - not forgetting the Chocaholic Buffet - where for 30minutes, you were invited to take photographs of their creations...then - YES - eat it!! We did not do any of the organised excursions - but most of the ports we berthed at, we were able to walk to shops and museums ect. FLAM was beautiful and we travelled on the train up into the mountains deep in snow...we bought our tickets in the information booth, and asked for Senior Fares, so from £30 down to £20! [ Had we bought the ships tickets it would have been £40! ] There was a safety issue that I must mention - some cabins have an extra bunk bed folded against one wall - please be extra careful, as one guest split his head badly - I feel this area should have extra padding. Small little things that could be done better, but hey I we weren't taking out a mortgage on the thing!!! So lighten up you folk, that want everything PERFECT...we are all human and mistakes DO happen - so if nobody died, let it go..... We would definitely sail on the MAGELLAN again...lovely ship and the NORWEGIAN FJORDS are absolutely STUNNING. [ WE WERE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE BLUE SKIES AND SUNSHINE MOST DAYS] Altogether a fabulous cruise for us... Read Less
