Follow Cruises From Bristol's Miles Morgan on his guided video tour round Cruise and Maritime's Magellan.

Cruise and Maritime’s Magellan carries 1,250 passengers and like Marco Polo 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.

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!


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.

Cruise & Maritime

Cruise and Maritime specialise in providing 'no fly' cruising holidays aboard smaller sized classic and more traditional style ships. They believe that these vessels offer a more leisurely and friendly 'home from home' style of cruising experience and are accessible to a much wider choice of interesting and remote ports of call.

Cruise and Maritime realise that many seasoned and first time British cruisers still prefer the more traditional cruising experience. The emphasis is very much on attaining high levels of customer satisfaction and attentive and friendly service and ensuring that passengers return home with many fond memories.
