It is not too early to start planning Summer 2018!
MSC Cruises ships await you for 2018 in four of the most loved summer locations around the globe: the East and West Mediterranean
, Northern Europe
and the Caribbean sea
In June 2018 the latest newcomer to our fleet, the MSC SEAVIEW
, will begin cruising the Mediterranean
. Travellers will be welcomed in a state-of-the-art vessel offering the most modern level of design, comfort, relaxation and activities available in cruising today.
The cruise will take passengers on the most popular and loved Mediterranean route, departing from Genoa
, stopping over in Naples
near the historic Pompei, going on to Messina
in Sicily, visiting the UN Heritage treasures of Valletta
on the island of Malta to then sailing back north towards the extravagant and very lively cities of Barcelona
in Spain and Marseille
in France, before returning to Genoa.
On top of the ports visited by MSC SEAVIEW, there are many other destinations to be discovered, depending on the route you select:
Another three west Mediterranean routes are available on board MSC ARMONIA
, MSC FANTASIA
and MSC DIVINA
, the capital of Minorca, with its British influences, Cagliari
with Roman ruins and old “castello”, Palma de Mallorca
with Moorish architecture and a seafront Cathedral, Civitavecchia
near Rome, with baroque architecture and a fort by Michelangelo and Palermo
, with Sicilian marzipan sweets and ancient street markets, are only some of the most notable destinations our itineraries could take you to.
Why not explore the eastern side of the Mediterranean basin? MSC MUSICA
, MSC POESIA
and MSC SINFONIA
will sail the Adriatic, Ionian and Aegean Seas to take you along the coasts and islands of Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania and Greece.
Depending on the route you choose you could be leaving from the city of canals and gondolas, Venice
, and touch cities full of culture like Kotor
with St Tryphon’s Cathedral, Athens
full of dramatic ruins in the shadow of the Acropolis, Katakolon
with a breathtaking temple dedicated to Zeus or Saran with a UNESCO World Heritage Site containing the Roman ruins of Butrint.
As well as culture and beaches, our Mediterranean destinations also offer you the chance of immersing yourself in the local atmosphere. This is particularly true for Split
with its lively waterfront, Zadar
that offers a bustling café life and bar scene, or the maze of small streets and Basilicas in Bari,
without forgetting the windmills that make Mykonos
Different itineraries that will allow you take in the incredible mix of cultures and customs that make up the Mediterranean. Discover them all here
You could also decide to go to the other side of Europe, to the north between the Baltic
and the Fjords
. Enjoying sceneries and attitudes that have recently become so appreciated they have given birth to the term Scandicool
will join the fleet in May, adding a fourth ship to the Nordic fleet made up of MSC ORCHESTRA
, MSC PREZIOSA
and MSC MAGNIFICA
Inspiring, natural and evocative landscapes are mixed with cities that have a Nordic heartbeat that gives a warm welcome to all visitors. From hikes with unique views to museums filled with art, jewels and heritage, there are destinations for all curious visitors. You could venture from the Baltic cities of Stockholm
and St Petersburg
to way beyond the Nordic Circle to Cape North
or the Svalbard
Islands. From Fjords that cut into the Scandinavian peninsula for hundreds of kilometres to historic port towns like Copenhagen
With its mild summer weather, Northern Europe is one of the coolest paces to spend your 2018 summer!

Cuba and Caribbean Sea
will be the 2018 novelty of the Caribbean following its launch in December 2017. It will join forces with the much loved MSC SEASIDE
and MSC OPERA
to cross the seas once filled with pirates and now the most aspirational of exotic summer locations.
Beaches, deep blue seas, islands, white sand, creole atmosphere, music, spices and markets describe all the locations covered by our itineraries that cover port towns from Miami
to St Maarten
, from the coast of Mexico
, Nassau, Puerto Rico
; and, of course, wonderful Cuba
Each with its particular characteristics, but all bathed in sun and a unique holiday atmosphere.
Spanish, Portuguese and American influences have made all these places a mix of cultures, attitudes, culinary marvels and dancing styles that will sweep you away in a different way every time you leave the ship for an excursion.
