Make your way to the port of Tilbury to board Magellan. We'll set sail this afternoon, and you'll have time to relax and enjoy dinner and entertainment on board.
Magellan's first stop is the Dutch maritime city of Rotterdam, home to world-class museums, stunning Erasmus Bridge and the remarkable Markthal food market. Explore the lovingly preserved Old Harbour and stroll past nearby Delfshavn's step-gabled houses and ancient wharves.
Get to know Magellan, her crew and your fellow cruise travellers as you spend a day relaxing at sea.
Today you'll call at Olden, and have the chance to join an optional excursion to the famous Briksdal Glacier. Travel through sublimely beautiful countryside to find this immense cliff of ice, which is actually just one of the 50 arms of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier, and governs the entire eastern reach of the Nordfjord.
Beautiful Kristiansund is our port of call today. This beautiful town sits on a cluster of four islands, and is the starting point of the Atlantic Ocean Road - a five-mile ribbon of roads and bridges that links the islets and skerries that skirt this part of the Atlantic coast.
Another relaxed day at sea as Magellan sails even further north.
Magellan's next port of call is remote Alta. Spend your time skygazing - the Northern Lights are at their most astounding here - or explore the Arctic region of Finnmark, home to the indigenous Sami people, the prehistoric rock carvings at Hjemmeluft and the world-famous Ice Hotel.
Cruise way beyond the Arctic Circle, close to the coast of Finnmark. As Magellan docks in remote Honningsvaag, you'll have the chance to join an optional excursion to the famous visitor centre at Nordkapp (North Cape), which lies almost at Europe's northernmost point.
Today Magellan calls in Tromso, recognisable for its magnificent Arctic Cathedral that rises proudly from its bustling centre. Explore the daily market and fascinating Polarmuseum, which chronicles the lives and exploits of the likes of Amundsen and Nansen.
Today is spent at sea, relaxing as Magellan turns south.
Beautiful Trondheim, picturesquely set between a loop in the River Nid and stunning Trondheimsfjord, welcomes us this morning. Soak up the atmosphere of a city that was once the capital of Viking Norway. Explore the imposing Nidaros cathedral, the restored Archbishop's Palace, and the impressive Stiftsgarden, which is now a royal residence.
Today Magellan sails into spectacular Andalsnes, and you'll have an opportunity to enjoy an excursion through some of Norway's most spectacular mountain scenery. Look out for the renowned wooden Rodven stave church in its gorgeous setting beside the fjord.
Today we'll reach Bergen, birthplace of composer Edvard Grieg. Wander its cobbled streets past attractive medieval houses, visit the vibrant harbour and fish market, or take the Floibanen funicular to the summit of 'Mount' Floyen.
Enjoy a final day at sea, reliving the memories of a wonderful holiday.
Disembark in Tilbury at the end of an unforgettable cruise.
