MS Magellan is a Holiday-class cruise ship, which was formerly owned by Carnival Cruise Line as Holiday and Ibero Cruises as the Grand Holiday. She has sailed for Cruise & Maritime Voyages since Spring 2015.

Ship history

MS Holiday was built by Aalborg Værft in Aalborg, Denmark and entered service for Carnival Cruise Lines on 13 July 1985. The ship's condition had been in decline, until 2003 when she was sent into dry dock and renovated. In 2005, during Hurricane Katrina, she was taken out of service to be used as temporary housing for the victims of the storm. After leaving Mississippi, she again went to dry dock for an additional three weeks of renovations. New carpeting and plumbing were added and repairs to the propellers were made, amongst other improvements.

MS Holiday resumed her normal route in the Western Caribbean, sailing from Mobile, Alabama until November 2009 when MS Holiday was retired from the Carnival fleet. She was later transferred to the fleet of Iberocruceros, another cruise line owned by Carnival Corporation & plc as MS Grand Holiday. The distinctive Carnival-style funnel was kept and repainted. In April 2010, she underwent dry dock refurbishment and was then transferred to the Ibero Cruises fleet. Sailing as MS Grand Holiday began on 18 May 2010

The ship was transformed into a four-star floating hotel in Port Sochi Imeretinskiy during the Winter Olympics from 5 to 24 February 2014.

On 3 November 2014, British cruise line Cruise & Maritime Voyages announced that MS Grand Holiday would be joining their fleet in Spring 2015 under the name Magellan. She began cruising out of London Tilbury, Newcastle upon Tyne and Dundee commencing 15 March 2015 and also Hamburg on 12 July 2015. In 2018 she underwent dry dock with Damen Shiprepair in Amsterdam.
