This privately owned company has a long standing relationship with the deep blue. Headed by Gianluigi Aponte – a captain with many years of experience at sea – MSC Cruises teams up family seafarer heritage of 300 years with a keen team of young and motivated managers. This combination inspired the company ethos –  Innovation = Tradition.

The company embraces Mediterranean culture wholeheartedly, and guests benefit from only the best in native cuisine, interior design and, of course, incredible weather while onboard. All of the 12 ultramodern ships are luxurious and stylish with dining, leisure and entertainment inspired by a passion for the Mediterranean.

MSC Cruises explore a number of incredible destinations outside of the Mediterranean too, with a wide range of seasonal itineraries in Northern Europe – including the Norwegian Fjords, Baltic Capitals, the Caribbean, South America, South and West Africa, Red Sea, the United Arab Emirates as well as Grand Voyages. Wherever you go with MSC Cruises, exploration is at the soul of the experience.

Onboard, the luxury stretches from bow to stern – with multiple dining options, including a renowned seven course dinner. There are plenty of bars to wet your whistle at, with superb daily entertainment for guests. The ships are also kitted out with tennis courts, a gym and swimming pools – perfect if you like to keep active.

The MSC Spa is the star of the show, with a huge list of unique treatments and therapies ranging from skin care and deep tissue massage to haircuts and pedicures. Whatever your taste, you can relax and let the MSC Cruises team take care of you.
