Cruise to Norway and Scotland’s Scenic Islands

Magellan in Eidjord

Sail away for 9 nights direct from Scotland… and before December 9, 2019 you can save up to 40% off on bookings. 

DC Thomson Travel has joined forces with Cruise & Maritime Voyages to sail the Best of Norway and Scottish Islands tour in the summer of 2020.

This foray in to maritime transportation is not a first for the Thomson family, as they owned a Shipping Line in the 1800s.

Andrew Thomson, Chairman of DC Thomson, said,

It’s wonderful to see DC Thomson realigning with its heritage by returning to the seas.  When William Thomson established the Thomson Shipping Line in the 19th century I’m sure he didn’t contemplate that over 100 years later DC Thomson would be transporting passengers by ship around the Scottish Isles and Norway.

With an occupancy of more than 1300, the Magellan is set to deliver a one-off cruise itinerary to passengers looking to see the best sights in Norway and the Scottish Isles – so why not join us?


Setting sail from Dundee on June 14, 2020, this one-off 9-night Best of Norway and Scottish Isles Cruise will take in sights including Flåm, Bergen and Portree.

Departing directly from Dundee and returning to Greenock, this superb voyage will first take you to Norway and some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in the world.
