About the Ship

Magellan Ship

The 46,052grt Magellan is smaller than other mega resort-style cruise ships you may have spotted on your travels but nonetheless beautiful.

With beautiful wood-type decks, this impressive ship provides numerous great vantage points as you travel past some of the most scenic landscapes in Europe and indeed, the entire world.

Magellan has 9 passenger decks, with 8 lifts for ease of access as you wander around your home.
