The brand TransOcean Cruises runs four high sea ships and belongs to CMV Holdings London Ltd.. The 80,000 passengers who travel yearly with the tour operator appreciate the excellent service, the good food and the interesting itineraries.
The ship was built in 1985 and since 2015 it has belonged to the fleet. Before that Magellan was in service for Carnival Cruise Line and Ibero Cruceros. The ship is well structured so that guests remember the locations and ways easily. Most of the public areas are located on deck 8-12. Short ways are caused by restaurants, lounges and bars close to each other. The Neptune Observation Bar at the stern is one of the best places to watch the sail away.

Atmosphere on board of Magellan
Thanks to the personal and familiar atmosphere the guests feel comfortable quickly. The ship's facilities and daily program lead to a relaxing atmosphere. During the day the dress code is informal and sporty. In the evening especially in the gala nights the passengers dress up in an elegant and formal style.
There are four restaurants in total. Two of them are the Waldorf Restaurant and Kensington Restaurant with an à-la-carte service and several course menues. The culinary offer is completed by the buffet restaurant Raffles Bistro and the specialty dining restaurant Fusion. Indian dishes are served in the Fusion for an additional fee.
Entertainment, sports & relaxation
Many lounges and bars are part of the big variety of entertainment. In the two-storey Magellan Show Lounge fascinating shows are presented in the evenings. Furthermore there are Scott's Nightclub, a casino and some shops. Some classic facilities like a library and a card room exist as well. The sporty people meet in the sports area at the Navigator deck or go swimming in the pool. For relaxation one can visit the Jade Wellness Centre or spend some time in one of the jacuzzis.
In comparison to other cruise ships Magellan has a small size and a very comfortable and familiar atmosphere. We recommend the ship for couples and young hearted passengers. During a cruise aboard Magellan there will be a lot of time for relaxation.
