Sail MSC Cruises for Affordable Luxury and Ultra-Modern Touches

MSC Cruises offers more than 2,000 excursions and tours in 190 destinations, such as Abu Dhabi, South Africa, and Northern Europe. If you're tired from dancing the night away at one of the onboard nightclubs, book an aromatherapy massage in the authentic Balinese spa, the MSC Aurea Spa.

Seeking an even more exclusive experience? The MSC Yacht Club provides luxurious staterooms with panoramic views and a host of private facilities. Guests can expect 24-hour butler service, exquisite cuisine, custom excursions, after-hours shopping, and more.

If you've got kids and you want a little "me time" or couple time, MSC Cruises ensures that the little ones will be safe and happy, having fun and making friends while supervised by trained staff. MSC cruise line itineraries are recommended for those who enjoy a more European atmosphere and travelers interested in a mid-priced cruise experience.
