Imagine walking up the gangway in Belfast or Cork, no worries about baggage allowances or airport security, no huge queues crowding around. Just give your bag to a steward and stroll down to the bar for a cocktail. Enjoy sitting on the deck as your ship glides away from Ireland without the slightest fuss.
The MV Magellan is a delightful three-star cruise liner operated by the English company Cruise & Maritime Voyages. She has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and comes complete with modern decor, fixtures and fittings. She accommodates just over 1,200 people when full, so is regarded as a small cruise ship, but big enough to offer a great variety of facilities, dining venues, and bars
The Magellan offers a traditional maritime experience in spacious surroundings. You will discover a wide range of comfortable lounges and stylish leisure facilities. Her public facilities include the impressive Waldorf and Kensington restaurants, offering two sitting dining options, or the more informal Raffles Bistro. There are comfortable lounge areas throughout the ship, 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
The Magellan has some great entertainment on board, from show teams to pianists to disco. Why not start your evening with a pre-dinner drink and enjoy some of your favourite melodies? Resident musicians invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy conversation with new friends about another wonderful day ashore.
