We have selected two very different cruises for our inaugural season with CMV. 

The first is a three-night Christmas Markets cruise that sails out of Tilbury in the late afternoon, crossing to Amsterdam overnight to give you a full day in that wonderful city to shop and sightsee before returning to the ship for dinner on Day 2. 

Again, sailing overnight along the coast, you wake up on Day 3 in Antwerp, Belgium’s historic diamond port. Both cities have beautiful festive markets to enjoy as well as wonderful architecture and good sightseeing. Your only difficulty will be in deciding what to do first on your days ashore. We sail back into Tilbury on the morning of Day 4.

The Land of the Northern Lights cruise is a 14-night itinerary in February, during which we hope, if the atmospheric conditions are right, to witness the incredible spectacle of the ‘aurora borealis’ or the Northern Lights. This usually takes the form of green, pink, blue and purple lights rippling across the night sky. 

Magellan’s route, along the Norwegian coast penetrating deep into the Arctic Circle, gives us a great chance of seeing this phenomenon.

And by day, there is the beautiful coastline of Norway to enjoy, with calls ashore at Alesund, Tromso, Alta, Honningsvag, the Vesteralen Islands, Andalsnes and Bergen, plus the chance to view Romsdalfjord and the Svartisen Glacier from the Magellan’s decks.

Christmas Markets - 3-night cruise

 

The cruise leaves Tilbury in the late afternoon, crossing to Amsterdam overnight to give you a full day in this wonderful city to shop and sightsee before returning to the ship for dinner. Again sailing overnight, you wake up the next day in Antwerp, Belgium's historic port. You depart that evening and arrive back into Tilbury on the morning of Day 4. This cruise is based on full board with 1/2 bottle of wine and water at dinner each day and fully hosted by Friendship Travel.

Land of the Northern Lights - 14 night cruise

This departure in February should be ideal for seeing the spectacular of the 'aurora borealis' or the Northern Lights, which usually take the form of green, pink, blue and purple lights rippling across the night sky. Magellan's route is along the Norwegian coast penetrating deep into the Artic Circle, giving us a great chance of seeing this phenomenon. And by day there is the beautiful coastline of Norway to enjoy, with calls ashore at Alesund, Tromso, Alta, Honningsvag, the Vesteralen Islands, Andalsnes and Bergen. 

 

This cruise is based on full board plus an all-inclusive drinks package each day and fully hosted by Friendship Travel. Your drink package includes local beer, wine and soft drinks during meals, by the glass, plus at all bars during opening times, self service tea and coffee each day. Premium branded drinks are not included. 

NEW for 2017 - Round the world in 120 days cruise 

This will be a once in a life-time cruise where you see many great areas of the world, while enjoying the company of other single travellers. Friendship Travel does not have their own host onboard, but will have a host visiting the ship in selected ports to meet guests, have a meal and ensure everyone is having a great holiday. 

Please call for full details of the ship and routes.

 

With 726 cabins and nine spacious decks, the ship can carry up to 1250 passengers, so compared to some of the mega-ships built in the last few years, Magellan is positively intimate! An international crew will look after you very well when it comes to making your cabin comfortable – which ever grade you choose – and welcoming you to dinner etc, but we are also, for the first time on a larger ship, sending our own Friendship Travel Host to accompany you throughout the cruise. Magellan has two lovely dining rooms, the Waldorf and the Kensington, and the informal Raffles Bistro. The show lounge is a show-stopping two-deck theatre which is complemented by Sinatra’s Lounge Bar, The Captain’s Club and Scott’s Nightclub on Deck 9.

The flagship of UK-based Cruise & Maritime Voyages, Magellan, is described as an “adult friendly” ship, that means no guests under 16 years are permitted, and the style of cruising, decor and services are aimed firmly at a ‘grown-up’ market.  As CMV themselves say “no climbing walls or ice-skating rinks and no kids!”

What’s more, she sails out of London’s Tilbury docks, which means Magellan is ideal if you hate flying but love the idea of a cruise.
