Ports of Call: Ringaskiddy, Cork (Ireland) - Gothenburg (Sweden) - Warnemünde (Germany) - Rønne, Bornholm (Denmark) - Visby, Gotland (Sweden) - Klaipėda (Lithuania) - Gdynia (Poland) - Skagen (Denmark) - Bristol Portbury (UK) - Cobh, Cork (Ireland)
Visiting Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania, Poland and Germany, this enticing itinerary unveils some of the Baltic Sea's hidden gems. Explore Rønne, the little capital of Bornholm Island; Visby, a living relic of medieval heyday and Gdańsk, Poland's oldest city, where the first shots of Wolrd War II were fired. There is also the chance to discover the contrasting cities of Gothenburg and Berlin.
Sail from Ringaskiddy and after a couple of days at sea, arrive in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Gregarious, chilled-out Gothenburg (Göteborg) is the quintessential 'second city': understatedly hip and unexpectedly vibrant. Neoclassical architecture lines its tram-rattled streets, locals sun themselves beside canals, and there's always an interesting cultural or social event going on.
Warnemünde is all about promenading, eating fish, sipping cocktails, and lazing in a Strandkorb (sheltered straw ‘beach basket’ seat) on its long, wide and startlingly white beach.
Nestled nearer to Sweden than Denmark, Bornholm has been under Danish rule since 1522. Once an important Baltic trading port, today the island is known for its scenic beauty and historic Old Town. Be sure to enjoy a leisurely stroll in the Gamle Stan (Old Town) with its cobbled streets and yellow and orange cross-timbered houses.
Beautiful Visby is a stunning sight as you sail into Gotland, its Cathedral, stone building rooftops and the old city wall are the ports stunning backdrop. Just a short walk from the ship, you can follow the old city wall round to the original entrance into the city, dating back to the 12th Century, much of the original town has survived, and wandering its UNESCO World Heritage streets is the perfect way to spend your day on shore.
As Lithuania’s oldest city, Klaipeda dates back to the 7th century and there is history crammed into every nook and cranny of the city. Much of the historic centre does not exist anymore, although the Prussian influences are still clearly visible throughout the city especially in the town square and adjoining streets.
Gdynia is a port city on the Baltic coast of Poland. It’s known for its modernist buildings, including the Museum of the City of Gdynia, which has exhibits about local history. Kościuszki Square, with a distinctive fountain as its center, leads to the waterfront. The WWII destroyer ORP Błyskawica and 1909 tall ship Dar Pomorza, now museums, are moored on the Southern Pier. Sharks and piranhas inhabit Gdynia Aquarium.
In the town of Skagen you can visit Skagen’s Museum of Local History and see the contrast of meagre to the affluent houses of the local fisherman. Visit the former Royal summer residence of Klitgaarden, the protected rural landscape of Hulsig Heath and the Raabjerg Mile, the largest migrating sand dune in Denmark and Northern Europe which was formed on the west coast in 16thcentury during the great sand drift.

The Bahamian flagged Magellan with her gleaming profile, beautiful wood type decks and distinctive CMV livery is an impressive ship.
She will accommodate about 1250 guests within a warm and friendly atmosphere that reflects a truly great cruise experience. Magellan is fully stabilised and air conditioned and has nine passenger decks serviced by eight lifts.
Magellan boasts a spacious interior, with wide corridors and expansive wooden deck areas providing comfortable surroundings for guests. However, the ship still provides an intimate atmosphere, with a huge range of leisure facilities, including bars and lounges, as well as multiple dining options.
Magellan Leisure Facilities
Magellan offers a traditional maritime experience in spacious surroundings. Her wide range of public facilities include the impressive Waldorf and Kensington Restaurants offering two sitting dining or the more informal Raffles Bistro.
There are comfortable lounge areas throughout including the two-tier theatre style Magellan Show Lounge, and a wide range of other amenities. Out on deck, there are two swimming pools, three whirlpools and expansive deck areas.
Our maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf or Kensington Restaurants where you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise. Whilst breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the restaurant on an open seating basis, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner in the evening.
As a casual alternative, the light and airy Raffles Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. Here informality is the key and you can feel free to drop in without any ceremony.
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 where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink.
At the very heart of Magellan is the stylish Captain’s Club, a popular place to meet fellow passengers. To start your evening you might opt for a pre-dinner drink here and enjoy a few of your favourite melodies.
After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the two-tier, Magellan theatre-style Show Lounge as our talented show team display their talents in a glittering ‘big-show’.
Enjoy more evening entertainment in Sinatra’s, the Captain’s Club and Hampton’s or enjoy a drink in the Taverner’s Pub.
The beautifully appointed Wellness Centre is nature’s secret of well being on Magellan. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments spanning across its state of the art treatment rooms, relaxation area, sauna and extensive menu of massage treatments. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation. Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day.
How about a few hands of cards in the Card Room? Or immerse yourself in a good book from the well-stocked Livingstone Library. Then, browse through the shopping gallaria and photo gallery for a few memories to take home of your time on board Magellan.
