Magellan the second

Less than 2 hours ago, the second cruise-ship of the 2018 Trondheim cruise-season arrived at Port of Trondheim for a visit from 12:00 to 18:00 hours. The second cruise-ship of 2018 was the venerable “Magellan” of Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), but started life back in 1985 as “Holiday” of Carnival Cruise Line.†

That’s how I best remember her: sailing as “Holiday” in and out of Miami on cruises to the Caribbean during the 80’s and the 90’s. She sailed under the house-flag of Carnival until 2010 when she was sold to Iberocruises and renamed “Grand Holiday”. Some four years later, she was sold to CMV and renamed “Magellan”, and this is where she remains today. †

More details can be found on Wikipedia.†

Have you ever sailed on her at some point in her career?

More images of her will be posted in the 2018 Cruise Ships in Norway thread at CaptainsVoyage Forum.†
