We had a good overall experience on our “Grand Fjordland Splendour” cruise on the Magellan. Overall, we believe that the cruise provided good value for money.

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 so small and this was a particular problem on sea days. Lots of staff on Reception but most appeared poorly trained and they constantly had to find more experienced staff to consult. ...

Magellan is probably OK for a good weather cruise, but there is insufficient seating and, in this case, poor quality guest lecturers and other indoor entertainment for a wet or windy weather cruise. Enjoyment of the evening shows is limited by poor visibility (due to lots of pillars and non-tiered seating) and the fact that each show only last for 45 minutes (so that they can be repeated for two ...

My husband and I chose this cruise not just for its itinerary and reasonable cost but for the convenience of the return trip from Liverpool; disembarkation went smoothly but we were surprised our hand luggage was not scanned or inspected in any way, we could have been carrying anything - very disturbing given the times we live in. The Magellan is very dated, desperately in need of a refit. ...
