MSC OPERA

There’ll be no shortage of ‘megaships’ cruising from Southampton in 2014 but, for those looking for a smaller ship cruising experience that’s strong on traditional cruise qualities, then MSC Opera offers a series of cruises to the Fjords, the Baltic and a ‘Continental Discovery’ to France, Spain and Portugal.

MSC Opera – Cruises from Southampton

MSC Opera offers a traditional take on cruising for those looking for a comfortable and unpretentious cruise in an easy-going, fun-loving atmosphere. Although the vast majority of passengers on her Southampton cruises will be British the famous mix of fine Italian and international cuisine is always appreciated!

Moreover, 2014 is your last chance to experience MSC Opera’s unique ambience on cruises from Southampton as she will be re-deployed in 2015. So, if you're looking to cruise from the UK in 2014, make sure MSC Opera is on your shortlist. From May through to September 2014 MSC Opera's cruises from Southampton will take her from Amsterdam along the coast of France to La Coruna in Spain, to the Baltic Capitals and to the stunningly lovely scenery of the Norwegian Fjords.

Those looking for the best value for money from their UK cruise will be pleased to know that free car parking and free coach transfers apply to these departures* as, of course, does MSC Cruises' Kids Cruise FREE policy.

With so many great itineraries on these cruises from Southampton, it’s fortunate that MSC Opera has plenty of open deck space and lots of spacious public rooms that help elevate watching the world go by into something rather special.

On board you’ll find that things have been done exceedingly well: MSC Opera features plenty of real wood and marble and rich, traditional fabrics and trimmings abound. Her public areas boast a sweeping marble reception area and lovely open spaces with huge glass walls overlooking the sea. Indeed wherever you go, inside or on deck, you’ll find that a true sense of operatic grandeur and spaciousness prevails.

You’ll quickly find that MSC Opera has the all important ingredient that turns a good cruise ship into a great one: she has atmosphere. Sumptuous décor and fine facilities come as standard but above all, a cruise aboard MSC Opera is sociable and fun. All ages are generally represented and the crew, the officers, the entertainers and musicians work together to generate a fantastic atmosphere.
