Hanga Roa, Rapa nui

The most beautiful atoll in the world

Imagine a volcanic island that emerged from the Pacific Ocean 4 million years ago, surrounded by coral reefs, with a turquoise blue sea, white sand beaches and mountains of black rock.

Welcome to Bora Bora, the pearl of the ocean and the next stop on your vacation with MSC World Cruise. This beautiful volcanic island in French Polynesia is dominated by the Otemanu and Pahia Mountains that distinguish the area and make its appearance unique. An amazing lagoon surrounds Bora Bora, allowing for a dip into the transparent crystal waters on the discovery of incredible marine life forms including rays, sharks, multi-colored fish, octopus and moray eels. It is the ideal place for snorkeling, contemplating the corals on the ocean floor from up-close, and maybe even relaxing to the gentle sound of the ukulele on Matira Beach, considered the most beautiful in the world.
During your excursion organized by MSC Cruises, you will have the opportunity to take a tour of the island to admire the scenery and historical beauty of the place in person, including Marae Faanui, the largest religious temple in Bora Bora, or the American bunkers placed there in memory of the role of the South Pacific during the Second World War. The volcanic peaks also offer the opportunity to go hiking and driving off-road with amazing views of the whole atoll.
In Bora Bora, there is a rich variety of natural beauty to admire that you can even see from above, thanks to a fantastic helicopter trip to take pictures and truly unique videos. You will see a panorama of the lagoon, the bustling center of Vaitape, Toopua and much more. Thanks to MSC Cruises, there are no limits and you can enjoy all of the wonders of the most beautiful island ever.

    Sandwiched between the snowy white peaks of the Andes and the waves of the Pacific Ocean, Chile is the perfect country for outdoor activities and nature lovers thanks to its stunning national parks and reserves, which protect an incredible variety of plants and animals.

    An MSC World Cruise will take you to the very end of this extremely long country – over 4300 km – from Arica, on the Chile- Peru border, to Punta Arenas, on the border between Chile and Argentina, including everything else on the way! 
    During a cruise you may not get to see the driest desert in the world – the Atacama desert with its fascinating Valley of the Moon –, the high trails in the Parque Nacional Lauca, all at an altitude of between 4000 and 6000 metres, or the volcanic peaks and verdant landscapes of the Región de Los Lagos (very similar to the European Alps), but you will definitely have the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness of Patagonia and the statues carved by the Rapa Nui on Easter Island. 
    An MSC day trip will take you to the capital of Chile, Santiago, which is easily reachable from the colourful port of Valparaiso. The city is located in the country's central valley, near an area that is characterised by its vineyards, for example Colchagua Valley, and ski resorts.
