Day One: Depart Dundee

Board Magellan in Dundee, today, and settle in to your cabin as she prepares to set sail.

Day Two: At sea

Spend today relaxing, and getting to know the ship, her crew and your fellow passengers.

Day Three: Copenhagen

Stylish Copenhagen, home to the famous Tivoli Gardens and forever associated with Hans Christian Andersen, is a marvellous city. Join the optional shore excursion to discover the world famous Little Mermaid, the Royal Palace and the grand stores that line the famous shopping street, Stroget.

Day Four: Warnemunde

This morning Magellan arrives in Warnemunde. Discover the port’s charming gabled houses and historic Neuer Markt, or join the optional excursion to Berlin to explore the city’s highlights – from the Brandenburg Gate and the 1926 Olympic Stadium to Hitler’s Bunker and Checkpoint Charlie.

Day Five: At sea

Relax on board as Magellan spends another day at sea.

Day Six: Tallinn

Today we’ll arrive in beautiful Tallinn. Step back in time as you explore the enchanting Estonian capital and its perfectly preserved old town, winding cobblestone streets full of storybook houses, steepled churches and ancient buildings, all watched over by Toompea Castle.

Days Seven and Eight: St Petersburg

Magellan will spend two days at the docks of St Petersburg, one of the world’s most startling and glorious cities, with its world-renowned Hermitage Museum, its wide canal-side boulevards and its modern cosmopolitan atmosphere. We’ll have lots of time in the city, so don’t miss our optional excursion to the Tsars’ Summer Palace at Petrodvorets, the chance to explore the city’s Haymarket, or the opportunity to see the opulence of the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the world-renowned Kirov Ballet.

Day Nine: Helsinki

Step ashore to explore Helsinki, Finland’s elegant capital. Explore the harbour-side fish market, take a stroll in nearby Esplanade Park, and don’t miss the monumental neo-Classical buildings of stunning Senate Square, which have played the part of Moscow in many Cold War movies.

Day 10: Stockholm

Today, Magellan will thread its way between the countless islands of Sweden’s eastern coast to Stockholm. Best explored on foot, the Swedish capital spans 14 islets and boasts a wonderful mix of historic sights and fine city parks. Its ancient heart is Gamla Stan, a beguiling labyrinth of cobbled streets, shops, cafes and restaurants.

Day 11: At sea

Spend another day at sea, hopefully enjoying sunny skies, as Magellan heads back to the UK.

Day 12: Aalborg

Our final Danish port is Aalborg. Explore the old town’s 17th-century castle and painted buildings, or join an optional excursion to the Viking burial site at Lindholm Hoje. Aalborg is also the home of Aquavit, and a visit to the distillery and museum provides another enjoyable diversion.

Day 13: At sea

Make the most of your final full day on board as Magellan cruises back into British waters.

Day 14: Newcastle

Newcastle was once among the most vibrant centres of the British Industrial Revolution, and has now evolved into one of England’s most energetic and exciting cities. Some of your newfound friends will disembark and finish their journey here, and you’ll have some time to explore before beginning the final leg of your cruise.

Day 15: Arrive Dundee

Bid farewell to Magellan and all your fellow travellers, today, as you disembark at the end of your cruise.
