I’ve cruised on Magellan and was very impressed. She is a quality ship with three sun decks, a contemporary feel, spacious cabins and a proper tiered theatre.

Ship Overview

Magellen

Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ Magellan carries 1,250 passengers and operates on an adult only basis. The ship has nine passenger decks serviced by eight lifts, and her expansive deck areas give a real feeling of space with a wide range of comfortable lounges and panoramic seating.

Dining options include the impressive Waldorf and Kensington Restaurants or the more informal Raffles Bistro. There are comfortable lounge areas throughout including the two-tier theatre style Magellan Show Lounge. Out on deck, there are two swimming pools and three whirlpools.

Restaurants

The attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf or Kensington Restaurants where you can opt for a full English breakfast, a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise. As a casual alternative, the light and airy Raffles Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. The Pool Deck lends itself particularly well to al fresco meals so a buffet breakfast or lunch from the Bistro can be served up with a complimentary ocean view!

Lounges

Why not settle down and enjoy wonderful panoramic ocean views from the comfortable lounge areas along the mall on the Magellan Deck, or relax in a secluded corner of the delightful Hamptons Lounge Bar. At the very heart of Magellan is the stylish Captain’s Club and after dinner enjoy the Show Lounge as the talented show team display their talents.

Other Facilities

The Jade Spa & Beauty Salon is well worth a visit while on ship. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments, sauna and an extensive menu of massage treatments.

How about a few hands of cards in the Card Room? Or immerse yourself in a good book from the well-stocked Livingstone Library.

Out On Deck

There are two outdoor swimming pools plus three whirlpools together with expansive deck areas for that daily exercise, relaxation and viewing or late night stroll.
