Magellan is the latest addition to the Newmarket Holidays cruise ship fleet. Bright, modern and comfortable, this spacious vessel has a contemporary style but still offers the intimacy and tradition of small-ship cruising.
To welcome you to Magellan and give you a glimpse inside, our website now has a gallery of ship photos. A recent refit (in 2010) has allowed her to look her best, but that’s not all that’s new about her.
- We are now offering popular departures from Dundee, alongside sailings from Tilbury and Newcastle.
- On board Magellan, there is no size variation between cabins. Instead, prices reflect cabin location.
- The wonderful new ‘Amazon, West Indies and Azores’ cruise offers the chance to get to know some new destinations – a series of Brazilian ports on an extraordinary journey down the Amazon river.
- Magellan has more cabins for single travellers. We also offer exceptional-value twin cabins for single occupants.
- Libraries have proved such a popular feature on our ships that Magellan’s library is about to be extended, providing a pleasant and peaceful place to relax on board.
Although sailing aboard Magellan offers some new benefits, there are some things that haven’t changed. Guests will still find a friendly, welcoming staff and crew looking after them, and plenty of facilities on board. Although Magellan is modern in style, they will also still enjoy the traditional, small-ship cruising experience that makes our ships such favourites.
As with our other ships, Magellan offers great entertainment, with shows, themed speakers and, occasionally, celebrity guests. These have included Irish Eurovision winner Dana and a line-up of Bond girls talking about filming alongside stars of the series. Magellan is also adults-only (as are our ships Marco Polo and Azores), offering relaxing getaways without the kids.
We’re very pleased to welcome this stylish ship to our fleet – so if you are thinking of a relaxing cruise or exploring exciting ports in 2015 and 2016, visit our website to find out more about Magellan.
