EXPLORE THE LANDS WHERE THE ATLANTIC MEETS THE NORTHERN SEAS

 
From March 2018, MSC Magnifica is ready to sail to the most enchanting East Atlantic destinations as well as the Norwegian fjords. The ship will offer more than 5 different itineraries of 7, 10, 11 and 14 nights. 

From coasts of Spain and Portugal to Holland and from United Kindom to Norway, MSC Magnifica will explore various cities and lands, to give you an unique look of the Atlantic sea, starting from three of the most evocative ports in the north, SouthamptonHamburg and Le Havre. 
 
A dazzling example of contemporary architecture, Le Havre takes its name from “The Harbour” it sits in. Definitely worth a visit, you may want to extend your stay to visit the capital of France, Paris or the close by town of  Mont Saint Michel. Southampton has been called the capital of cruising in the UK and it is not surprising, as cruise ships have been docking at the port since 1840. 
 
Depending on itinerary you will choose, you will have the possibility to visit different destinations:

Let's start with Leixoes, one of our new ports of call. It will let you reach Porto, where you can admire the iron Dom Luís Bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel.
It is included in a 14-nights itinerary, that will bring you also to Malaga, Cadiz and Lisbon before to land in Amsterdam with an overnight that let you visit the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank’s house, the Vondel park and, of course, its fascinating maze of canals. 
 
La Coruna is on the north coast of Spain, guarding it from the Atlantic with its impressive Roman light house. Its beautiful port and ancient center are worth a visit. Like unmissable is the excursion to Santiago de Compostela, one of Spain’s most beautiful cities. 
It is one of ports of call included in the itinerary that will bring you to the Atlantic port of Le Verdon-sur-mer, in the Aquitaine region, the other new destination in MSC Northern Europe programme. 
The journey continues to a recently reintroduced port of call, Bilbao. A beautiful city from all perspective, it is graced with the impressive Guggenheim museum with a breathtaking structure on the outside and amazing art collections on the inside. 
 
It's not over here. You can choose to discover the most beautiful cities of United Kingdom, from Invergordon and South Queensferry in Scotland and the reintroduced Newcastle upon Tyne in England, before to sail towards Amsterdam and back again to Hamburg, Southampton and Le Havre.

If, instead, you want to be inspired by fairytale landscapes, MSC Magnifica will accompany you to Alesund and Olden, with an itinerary of 10 nights that will let you explore Norwegian fjords.
