The Mediterranean is more than just a destination for MSC Cruises, it's our home. That's why we know the ports of call and both the well-known and secret attractions. Our cruise itineraries will transport you to the hidden corners of history, culture and nature in the land of Roman baths, crumbling ruins, Napoleon's birthplace and sun-baked villages that are all part of the vastly diverse Mediterranean seaside.
Explore ancient civilization's most amazing treasures: the haunting beauty of the ruins of Ephesus, the mighty Acropolis in Athens or the Colussus of Rhodes. Voyage through the Dardanelles to Yalta and Odessa, summer retreats of the Russian Czars.
Experience the mysterious isles of Corsica and Sicily or the quaint fishing harbor of Capri, known as the Isle of Love, with its reputation among artists and poets. Feast on some of Italy's best food in Naples, float under the Bridge of Sighs on a gondola in Venice and watch a flamenco dance in Malaga, Spain. Bargain in a Turkish bazaar or North African casbah for intricate souvenirs or simply relax under the Mediterranean sun blazing over the Greek Isles.
NORTHERN EUROPE CRUISES
Northern Europe is a favorite destination for travellers looking for a balance of sophisticated cities and beautiful landscapes. Perhaps equally famous are the waterways in Northern Europe: from the Norwegian fjords to Finland's archipelagos. Summer is high season, with long Scandinavian days where the sun can shine for almost 24 hours straight. Many of our Northern European cruises depart and/or finish in Copenhagen, Denmark's fairy tale like capital city where bicycles coast alongside cars and the scent of baked goods emanates from storefronts.
Enjoy a Baltic Capitals cruise where a sweeping tour includes some of Europe's most glorious cities. Navigate the narrow waterways and medieval streets of Stockholm, a quaint city built on 14 small islands. Explore Tallinn, the primary tourist destination and capital of Estonia, and it's Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the cultural history of St. Petersburg, Peter the Great's Window on Europe and Helsinki, a scenic city overlooking the Gulf of Finland with long summer days and a warm, welcoming and well-educated population.
If you ever feel like there aren't enough hours in the day, visit the Land of the Midnight Sun. Norwegian Fjord and Midnight Sun cruises offer up to 20 hour days, touring glaciers, lakes and mountains. Going beyond the charming capital city of Oslo towards the western region for the best fjord viewing locations are Flaam and Geiranger. Bergen, a beautiful waterside city, is full of all the culture, shopping and manmade pleasures to complement the natural resources of this magnificent land.
