Day 1
London Tilbury, UK, England

Tilbury’s position on the east coast of England and its proximity to London makes it a great location from which to embark on a cruise. This is made possible by the town’s deep-water port, which also handles a considerable number of container ships. Located in the Essex borough of Thurrock, Tilbury has a long history as a defensive town - which is epitomised by its 16th century fort.

Day 2
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Regarded as the Venice of the north, the Dutch capital of Amsterdam is made up of a series of 90 islands, which are connected by almost 1,200 bridges. Today, Amsterdam is a city of contrasts, with many people being attracted to this vibrant destination for its range of bars and night clubs. On the other hand, Amsterdam is home many renowned architectural structures, insightful museums and beautiful gardens.

The Royal Palace was originally built in the 17th century to serve as a town hall, but is now one of three palaces in the Netherlands to be under disposal of the monarchy. In the springtime, be sure to visit the Keukenhof Gardens, where seven million flower bulbs create a beautiful display of bold and bright colours.

5
Day 5
Lisbon, Portugal

Built on seven hills, the Portuguese capital of Lisbon shares a similar status to the Italian city of Rome and the Turkish city of Istanbul. This vibrant and cultural city has much to offer to the discerning visitor, with many beautiful gardens, stunning architectural wonders, and cultural relics such as the traditional trams which have operated in Lisbon since the 1930’s. Head to Cine Theatro Gymnasium if you get the chance, as this is where you will be able to experience a daily performance of Fado – a distinctive Portuguese style of music that has gained UNESCO World Heritage status.

20
Day 20

23
Day 23
Belem, Brazil

Sail on board Magellan
Entertainment

From the moment you step onboard, the choice is yours to join any of the many activities on offer or simply enjoy the luxury of being able to do absolutely nothing. The ship’s daily programme will be delivered to your cabin each evening, outlining the events of the following day.

Lido Bar & Eros Bar

Enrichment

There are three enrichments activities onboard Magellan, arts and crafts, guest speakers, and An Audience With... This is the perfect way to broaden your mind and learn new skills whilst sailing.

Guest Speakers-

Learn more about a fascinating subject from someone who is passionate about their interest and will want to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with you. CMV cruises of five nights or more are accompanied by one or more of these experts giving informative talks or practical sessions on a range of fascinating subjects. These speaker subjects may include maritime history, broadcasting, gardens and even criminology! They are generally programmed to take place during days spent at sea rather than in port, so that you won’t miss out.

Arts & Crafts-

With Arts and Crafts growing in popularity, they are including sessions on all CMV cruises of five nights or more. Specialists will be delighted to demonstrate their talents replicating many of the growing number of new crafting skills now witnessed on dedicated TV channels. These may include millinery, bead jewellery, mosaic decoration, calligraphy and decorative card art. You may need to buy materials on board which will be supplied by the crafter for a modest charge.

An Audience With...

On selected cruises they feature their light hearted ‘Audience With …’ where you are invited to listen to an invited guest speaker or performer talk about their life experience and expert knowledge interspersed with questions from you, the audience. This offers you a great chance to become involved and be a part of the fun. Audiences love them, hopefully you will too.

Dining

Food is always one of the many highlights of cruising. Whether you are enjoying a pool deck buffet, a relaxed lunch in the Raffles or dining in the Waldorf Restaurant, the chefs onboard Magellan will not disappoint you.

Waldorf Restaurant

The maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf 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.

Kensington Restaurant

The maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant 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.

Raffles Bistro

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.

HealthFitness

Equipped with a gym and wellness centre, Magellan provides everything you need to improve your fitness levels or to simply relax. There's also the Sun Deck, which is perfect if you want a jog or run at sea.

Jade Wellness Centre

The beautifully appointed Jade Wellness Centre is nature’s secret of well being on the Marco Polo. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments, fitness and exercise equipment, and sauna and massage facilities. 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. 

Lido Pool & Whirlpools

There is an outdoor swimming pool plus three whirlpools and, in keeping with her heritage, the Amundsen Deck offers a traditional walk around promenade for that daily exercise or romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.

Facilities

Disabled Facilities

If you or one of your travelling companions has a mobility limitation or special needs, it is essential that you contact Cruise & Maritime Voyages' office to allow them to discuss your requirements before you make a booking. Firstly though, please read the panel headed ‘Maritime Passenger Rights’ within the Booking Conditions on page 65 as this contains important information. In the interests of safety, and in order to ascertain whether you or members of the party travelling with you have specific mobility or other special needs, you will be asked a series of questions. The answers to these will enable them to determine that you, any other person in your booking, and any equipment that you or they are intending to bring onboard can be carried safely for the duration of your cruise. This will then be confirmed in writing to you, and will enable your booking to proceed. A cruise is quite unlike a land based holiday and the ships of the Cruise & Maritime fleet are not ideally suited to prospective passengers in wheelchairs or those who have limited mobility. It should be noted that the layout of the ship could considerably restrict such passengers’ movement around the vessel and indeed preclude access to some of the ports of call, where gangway conditions are not conducive or passengers are conveyed ashore by tender. At anchorage ports, access to or from the tenders or launches requires a certain level of mobility which is necessary to manage the steps to the tender platform and to physically board and disembark from the vessel. It should therefore be noted that, on safety grounds, those with restricted mobility may be unable to go ashore at such ports.

Special Dietary Requirements

If you, or a member of your party, have a particular dietary requirement, the restaurants are able to offer the following dietary options: Gluten-Free, Lactose-Free, Low Cholesterol, Low Fat, Low Salt and Vegetarian Meals. If you have not done so at the time of booking, please advise any requirements no later than two weeks prior to departure. Kosher and Halal meals are available but only if requested at least 6 weeks prior to sailing.

Dress Code

During the day, attitudes are very relaxed and informality is the key. Casual clothing is quite sufficient during the days at sea and for time spent ashore. On certain shore excursions and at some religious sites, discretion should be used so as not to cause inadvertent offence with inappropriate clothing. Advice will be given onboard in such cases. 

Every day, the Daily Programme suggests, as a guide, a mode of dress for that particular evening’s events. Generally there are two ‘formal’ or gala nights planned on each cruise when many gentlemen wear a dinner jacket, although a lounge suit is quite acceptable. The ladies on these occasions have a chance to dress up and often opt for evening or cocktail dresses. 

On evenings proposed as ‘informal’, a suit or smart jacket and trousers, with or without a tie, for the men is suggested and the ladies have further opportunities to look elegant in a cocktail dress, trouser suits and stylish coordinates. A ‘casual’ recommendation often covers evenings spent in port or when a special event such as a deck party is scheduled. In these cases, the choice of dress is left entirely to you.

Age Restrictions

Magellan welcomes accompanied children and teenagers however, it should be noted that there are no dedicated recreational facilities for these age groups.

Infants under the age of six months at time of sailing are not allowed onboard.

Passengers must be 18 years old or above to be allowed to consume alcoholic beverages.
