MSC Cruises: The Mediterranean Cruise Experts

MSC Cruises is proud of its global operation, yet our heart and soul belong to the Mediterranean. No other cruise line is better qualified to take you on a Mediterranean cruise in a style that reflects both a passionate Mediterranean tradition and a love of modern dersign and timeless elegance.

Take your pick from a spectacular array of state-of-the-art MSC cruise ships visiting a matchless selection of Mediterranean ports of call. It’s a real pleasure to share our Mediterranean cruise vision with you!


What's so special about Mediterranean cruises with MSC? Simple, there’s really nowhere else in the world that lends itself to cruising quite like the Mediterranean. And why spend precious ‘cruise time’ sailing from Ireland when you can fly right to the heart of the Med’ and begin your cruise from ports as evocative as Venice, Genoa or lovely Livorno, the port for Florence and Pisa? These days time is precious, making a 7 night med’ fly cruise with MSC Cruises the perfect way to see half a dozen Mediterranean ports of call all in the space of a single week.

Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in the Mediterranean’s rich history or simply looking for a spot of warmer weather and a chance to relax, you’ll find Mediterranean cruises with MSC are sure to do the trick. And, if romance is your goal, then consider this: nothing says amore quite like Mediterranean cruises with MSC!  
 
Because so many of MSC’s cruise ships are based in the Mediterranean they can easily reach beyond the western Med’ to the Canary Islands, Madeira, and the west coast of Portugal – the approach to Lisbon along the Tagus to dock under the famous suspension bridge is a wonderful experience. Elsewhere, perennial cruise favourites like Gibraltar with its imposing Rock and talismatic Barbary Apes and the chic unspoilt city of Malaga vie for your attention as do Moroccan favourites, Casablanca and Tangiers.    

The eastern Mediterranean is simply magical, full of ancient history, bustling charismatic cities and beautiful, beautiful Greek islands like Santorini, Crete, Mykonos and Rhodes. A visit to Athens (from Piraeus) would be reason enough to travel yet even less well known ports like Kusadasi become gateways to magical places like Ephesus, an extraordinary glimpse of the ancient world. In the heart of the Mediterranean fantastic ports of call come thick and fast. With cruises from Venice, Genoa and Livorno MSC Cruises can show you all the magic of Italian cites like Rome (from  Civitaveccia) and Naples as well as less well know ports of call in Sicily, Corsica and Sardinia.

Barcelona is always a favourite call and a stroll along the vibrant Ramblas to mavel at Gaudi’s masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, is always a joy. As indeed are cruises to and from Palma, perhaps the Med’s most underrated port, full of stylish shops and bars and a magnificent cathedral too. Cruising from Venice is an experience in itself especially as you’re treated to a sumptuous view of the city from the open decks. Easing into the Adriatic bound for busy, historic Bari, the walled medieval city of Dubrovnik and the Greek Islands adds up to a wonderful cruise experience.  

Finally, if you’ve always wanted to cruise the Mediterranean when there are fewer people around and the weather isn’t quite so hot, how about joining MSC Splendida or MSC Fantasia for a Mediterranean winter cruise? These two magnificent cruise ships offer 10, 11 and 8 night cruises to the Med’s most interesting ports of call and, for an unforgettable celebration, why not join us for a Christmas or New Year cruise in the Mediterranean?
