This voyage takes you to the Faroe Islands and Iceland, the 'Land of Fire & Ice' where, if atmospheric conditions are right, you have the chance to witness the incredible Northern Lights.

Accommodation
Your Cruise Ship - CMV Magellan
Magellan joined the CMV fleet in 2015 to much acclaim. Able to carry 1,250 guests, Magellan offers a more traditional and leisurely ‘country house’ style of cruising and maritime experience. Enjoy traditional wood type decking and expansive deck areas on a smaller ship able to access more ports of call than the larger resort ships, enabling some really innovative itineraries.

Onboard Facilities
Discover a wide range of comfortable lounges and stylish leisure facilities to enrich your time on board. The wide range of public facilities include the impressive Waldorf and Kensington Restaurants offering two dining sittings, or the more informal Raffles Bistro. There are comfortable lounge areas throughout, 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 large deck areas.

Cabins
Your cabin is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day sightseeing ashore and your cabin steward will ensure that you enjoy a high degree of comfort and service, whichever grade of accommodation you decide best suits your holiday requirements. A high priority is placed on your comfort, with hanging and storage space and a designated steward service twice daily, including a nightly turndown service.  All cabins offer twin lower beds, bathroom with shower, TV., telephone, hairdryer, music console, safe, air conditioning and complimentary pool towel.

Dinner



Day 2 Cobh for Cork

Arrive 12:00. Depart 20:00.

Lying at the mouth of the River Lee, Cobh has one of the best natural harbours in the world. Known as Queenstown until 1922, it was the departure point for thousands of Irish emigrants to America and the last port of call of the Titanic.

The ‘Queenstown Story’ is a wonderful exhibition telling of this rich maritime history. From Cobh’s waterfront, streets lined with brightly coloured houses climb the steep slope of a hill, which is crowned with the imposing St. Coleman’s Cathedral. A charming little town, Cobh is a gateway to the city of Cork and excursions to Ireland’s legendary Blarney Castle.

Day 5 Tórshavn

Arrive 08:00. Depart 17:00.

Once the site of an annual Viking gathering, Tórshavn is today one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world. It sits on the southern tip of Streymoy, one of eighteen islands in the Faroese archipelago. Tinganes is the old part of the town where characteristic red wooden buildings with turf-covered roofs cluster on a narrow peninsula. It juts into the natural harbour around which the modern town has been built.

The Faroe Islands have a wild and dramatic landscape, which is a magnificent backdrop to optional excursions showing how islanders live on this remote and unspoiled archipelago.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner



Day 6 At Sea

Enjoy another day at sea making the most of your onboard facilities.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner



Day 7 Reykjavík

Arrive 08:00.

Part old Norse, part modern city, the Icelandic capital has a quirky character of its own. Although Reykjavik is one of the world’s smallest capital cities, it is home to almost half of Iceland’s population. Mosaics, murals and sculptures are found throughout the oldest part of the town where brightly coloured houses with tin roofs are watched over by the towering Hallgrimskirkja Church.

The classic ‘Golden Circle’ featuring vast lava fields, bubbling mud pools, crashing waterfalls and spouting geysers, is a popular optional excursion along with the chance to bathe in the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner



Day 8 Reykjavík

Depart 22:00.

Spend another day in the capital city of Reykjavik before setting sail at 10pm.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner



Days 9 & 10 At Sea

Spend the next two days onboard the ship as you sail towards Northern Ireland.

2xBreakfast, 2xLunch, 2xDinner



Day 11 Belfast

Arrive 08:00. Depart 23:00.

Samson and Goliath are much-loved landmarks soaring above Belfast’s skyline. The two great, yellow-painted, gantry cranes are a reminder of the shipbuilding industry that put Northern Ireland’s capital firmly on the map. Housed in an iconic, state-of-the-art, 6-storey building, Titanic Belfast® relives the city’s golden era and traces the story of the ill-fated liner built in the shipyards of Harland & Wolff.

At the heart of today’s cosmopolitan city is Belfast’s elegant City Hall, which stands in Donegal Square. The extraordinary Giant’s Causeway is a popular excursion from this city with omnipresent Irish charm.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
