Ships visiting Australia & S-E Asia: Orchestra in early 2015

MSC Cruises is an Italian-Swiss company based in Geneva. The fourth largest cruise operator in the world, it offers an Italian-based ambience. Itineraries include the Mediterranean, Northern Europe & Atlantic, NE America, Caribbean, Africa, and South America. MSC has the most modern cruise fleet in the world. Its newest ships offer specialty restaurants, poolside movie screens and expansive spas to its growing international passenger base. MSC cruises are best suited to adult couples and singles, families with children, and guests who enjoy big city life, outdoor cafés, constant activity with plenty of music and late nights. Children are especially catered for during meal times, as well as nanny-hours for babies and toddlers. The ships offer a standard range of evening entertainment. Expect announcements in five languages. For exclusive access to certain areas, MSC’s Yacht Club offers ‘ship-within-a-ship’ benefits. Single supplements are significantly reduced on many voyages.

The MSC Cruises fleet can be divided into two: the value-priced refurbished classic ships (sailing the Mediterranean and South America) with more exotic itineraries and tailored to older travellers, and its many new vessels that cater to retirees in winter and families during summer. On some itineraries children under 18 cruise free when sharing a cabin with adults. An MSC Cruise at school holiday time provides opportunities for kids to have fun while Mum and Dad relax. MSC Cruises’ “onboard sanctuary” MSC Yacht Club won praise for its cabins with a near-perfect score of 4.9 out of 5. In the Mediterranean choose at which port you wish to embark and disembark – there are 10 new flexible embarkation ports available. Purchase an ‘Allegrissimo’ package for unlimited daily drinks (including drinking water) during your cruise.
