Alex And Iain Board The MS Magellan


This week, Features Ed Alex and I climbed aboard the MS Magellan, a Cruise And Maritime Voyages ship which frequently docks here in Dundee.

Along with colleagues from My Weekly, we were invited to tour the ship and have lunch in one of the restaurants, in advance of the DC Thomson Travel Cruise 2020.

This fantastic trip will take in the best of the Scottish Isles and Norway next summer. And tickets are so far proving popular with “Friend” readers!

We wandered through the corridors, cabins and public spaces (including an impressive buffet area, and a very cosy pub). And now I can’t recommend this trip highly enough.

In fact, we were momentarily separated from the rest of the tour group, and had practically resigned ourselves to sailing for Scandinavia.

Unfortunately, they found us again . . .

Take a look at the gallery below for some of the pictures we took on the day. Including Alex posing with a variety of towel animals . . .

The details

The Magellan will depart from Dundee on June 14, 2020 for a one-off, 9-night trip. The ship’s 1300 passengers will take in fascinating sights including Flam, Bergen and Portree.
