Cruise & Maritime Voyages Magellan
Join us on Diva lesbian hosted group cruise as we set sail, heading south to Gibraltar en route to the Canary Islands and Madeira. There's nothing like heading to warmer climes in March when you can relax on board the impressive ship, Magellan with her expansive deck areas, pool, spa and spacious lounges. This taste of springtime in the Canary Islands provides a splash of colour and sunshine. You'll find busy harbour fronts, lush hillsides and valleys descending to sandy bays and beaches, fascinating cities and tempting shops of every description.
Your Diva representative will look after you from the moment you arrive at port to the moment you depart the ship. A holiday where gay women can meet new friends, share a fantastic cruise experience and have a wonderfully relaxing holiday whilst visiting the the Canaries, a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa.
On the most famous and largest island, Tenerife you can visit the sometimes-snowy active volcano Mt. Teide, which has its own astronomical observatory and is part of Teide National Park.
On our way back we'll visit the island of Madeira, a haven of natural beauty and renowned for its exotic colourful flowers and the largest Laurisilva forest in the world.
Our final stop takes us to the beautiful and historic city of Lisbon. Our group will meet each day for meals; with evenings spent together either at one of our hosted events or at one of the ship’s entertainment events, all at your disposal. During the full days at sea you can join our representative for some fun activities on deck. For the remainder of your voyage the days will be taken up going ashore to explore the many sites on offer.
Whether you are travelling solo, a couple or friends travelling together there will be something for everyone.
It's your holiday though to do as you wish, therefore please feel free to dip in and out of our events and dining times, whatever fits in best with your day.
Cruise & Maritime Voyages MS Magellan
Magellan boasts a spacious interior, with wide corridors and expansive wooden deck areas providing comfortable surroundings for guests. However, the ship still provides an intimate atmosphere, with a huge range of leisure facilities, including bars and lounges, as well as multiple dining options.
Providing a quintessentially British cruise experience to all its passengers, the Magellan ship is among the most well-known of Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ fleet. Highlights include its two high-quality restaurants, the Waldorf and the Kensington, the more relaxed Raffles Bistro, and an impressive array of whirlpools and swimming pools out on the deck.
A pub, a card room and a fully-stocked library are just a few examples of the many ways in which the Magellan cruise ship endeavours to make itself a home away from home for its 1,250 guests. Regardless of whether you are travelling, this beautiful vessel’s extensive facilities will always make you feel like you are in friendly and familiar surroundings once you get back on board.
Combining expansive, comfortable surroundings and friendly service with stylish entertainment and delicious cuisine, the Magellan cruise ship is the perfect choice for those looking for a greater range of on- board facilities. However, she still retains a feel of intimacy and personal attention when compared with the 'mega' resort style ships built today. No climbing walls or ice-skating rinks and no kids!
Our maitre’d and his attentive waiting staff will welcome you to the elegant Waldorf or Kensington Restaurants where you can opt for a full English breakfast, savour a leisurely five-course lunch and enjoy a delightful dinner every day of your cruise. Whilst breakfasts and lunches are generally served in the restaurant on an open seating basis, two fixed time sittings are operated for dinner in the evening.
As a casual alternative, the light and airy Raffles Bistro is open every day for buffet style breakfast, lunches and dinner. Here informality is the key and you can feel free to drop in without any ceremony.
The Pool Deck lends itself particularly well to al fresco meals so a buffet breakfast or lunch from the Bistro can be served up with a complimentary ocean view!
Why not settle down and enjoy wonderful panoramic ocean views from the comfortable lounge areas along the mall on the Magellan Deck, or relax in a secluded corner of the delightful Hamptons Lounge Bar where the head barman will soon get to know your favourite drink.
At the very heart of Magellan is the stylish Captain’s Club, a popular place to meet fellow passengers. To start your evening you might opt for a pre-dinner drink here and enjoy a few of your favourite melodies.
After dinner the show team would enjoy the pleasure of your company in the two-tier, Magellan theatre-style Show Lounge as our talented show team display their talents in a glittering ‘big-show’.
Enjoy more evening entertainment in Sinatra’s, the Captain’s Club and Hampton’s or enjoy a drink in the Taverner’s Pub.
Out On Deck
There are two outdoor swimming pools plus three whirlpools together with expansive deck areas for that daily exercise, relaxation and viewing or a romantic stroll before you decide to call it a night.
On a Cruise & Maritime Voyages holiday, our guests don’t need to wait until the sun goes down for the ship to come alive. Stroll around Magellan during the day and you will find all manner of exciting and relaxing activities to choose from, including beauty treatments, swimming and gym workouts.
The beautifully appointed Wellness Centre is nature’s secret of well being on Magellan. It offers hairdressing & beauty treatments spanning across its state of the art treatment rooms, relaxation area, sauna and extensive menu of massage treatments. Why not indulge yourself with life’s most perfect gifts: relaxation, invigoration and rejuvenation. Treat yourself to a spa package and design your own special day.
How about a few hands of cards in the Card Room? Or immerse yourself in a good book from the well-stocked Livingstone Library. For the more energetic, keep in shape with a out at the gym. Then, browse through the shopping galleria and photo gallery for a few memories to take home of your time on board Magellan.
When it comes to after-dinner entertainment, you will be spoilt for choice on Magellan. As well as the traditional shows and cabaret you would expect to find on our ships, other evening entertainment options include classical music ensembles, card games and quizzes, along with performances by various specialty acts.
