We chose this cruise because we got an excellent deal and it was sailing from Newcastle. We weren't sure what to expect with it being an older ship but were pleasantly surprised by decor and cabin. I must ...

Never Again

We have just returned from a seven night cruise to the Fjiords on the Magellan. Let me start by saying that if it had been my first cruise it would also have been my last. The ship should be re-named the Sloop John ...

Good value for the money you pay

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 ...

Better Than Expected

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 ...

All a bit too "easy listening" in God's Waiting Room!

I think your view of Magellan is likely to be influenced greatly by whether you have cruised before or not; I have. The embarkation process began well (the staff in the carpark were superb), but when we went to ...
