12 night cruise sailing from Genoa aboard the MSC Poesia

Visit Marseille, Barcelona, Casablanca, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Funchal, Malaga, Rome (Civitavecchia) and Genoa.

Genoa

GENOA cradled between land and sea, living and working in the port, breathing its past in her palaces, passionately fond of the terraced hills that embrace the city, Genoa has many different faces. A modern metropolis and a severe custodian of artistic heritage, an industrious marketplace that also has century-old parks to relax in. Genoa hides her riches in an historical centre that looks traditionally seaward yet at the same time exhibits a new beauty achieved by restoring the splendour of ages past. Youthfulness springs from the new urban fabric that has restored works of arts and architecture.

Marseille

MARSEILLE The second city of France and the capital of the Provence-Costa Azzurra region. Marseille lies on the southeastern coast of France. The strong mistral wind blows away all traces of pollution and thus provides clarity of air so pure that many famous artists have been attracted to the city: Cézanne; Braque; Derain; Dufy and Marquet. Although Marseille is the economic and industrial capital of France, it manages to remain true to its own traditions and culture, reflected in the Marsillian way of life and its numerous museums, theatres and opera houses.

Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of the Catalonia region. It lies along the Mediterranean coast between the mouths of the rivers Besós and Llobregat. In the Northwest a set of hills run parallel to the coast. In the Southwest the old town lies along the port and is divided by the famous “La Rambla”. Today Barcelona is Spain's second biggest city as far as population is concerned and it is the main industrial centre of the country. Barcelona hosts two universities, several museums and libraries and has been a cultural and artistic centre since the Middle Ages.

Casablanca

Visit the bustling markets and the secret gardens of the Royal Palace. African, Arabian and European cultures merge in this city that is home to artisans and craftsmen.

Funchal

The great Portuguese poet, playwright and author, Júlio Dinis famously described Funchal as; “The sea on one side, the mountains on the other, and between these two majestic splendours, the city smiles like a child sleeping, safe and warm, between its parents.” We can’t think of a prettier and more inviting introduction to this beautiful Mediterranean haven. Funchal, the capital of the Portuguese island of Madeira is the very soul of Portugal. Settlers over 500 years ago were attracted to this sheltered spot, which is set in a natural ‘amphitheatre’. Gentle slopes, abundant with flowers, rise above the pretty harbour to almost 1200 metres. The magnificent bay of Funchal, with its glittering blue waters is home to the port, just a 15-minute walk from the city centre. Thanks to its strategic mid-Atlantic location, Madeira has been an important stopping point for ocean-going liners for many years and was an important port of call for the routes on cruise ships between Europe and Africa and America. As part of your Mediterranean cruise vacation with MSC Cruises, your luxury cruise liner will also call in at this exquisite holiday destination. As an Italian company, MSC Cruises is renowned for offering some of the best luxury cruise package deals around. Our shore excursions will take in the best that this cosmopolitan and attractive city has to offer with its lush parks, elegant boutiques shops and hotels. Scenic excursions feature a unique basket ride down the mountainside.

Malaga

Malaga of course the great beaches of nearby Costa del Sol are what have made Malaga one of the most visited regions of Spain. But this town has more to offer than just seaside and sunshine! It was founded already by Phoenicians, and was of great importance in the Moorish epoch. Highly interesting historical remains are left in the town as well as in the entire province. Add to that beautiful landscapes and picturesque villages, Malaga is not to be missed

Civitavecchia

Civitavecchia is the port about one hour from the capital of Italy, Rome means history. There are layers of the stuff - Etruscan tombs, republican meeting rooms, imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, renaissance palaces and baroque basilicas. In this city a phenomenal concentration of history, legend and monuments coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. So get your cultural fill but be sure to leave time for more hedonistic concerns: eat till you can eat no more and get drunk on architecture and sunshine.

MSC Poesia

Christened in Dover in April 2008 by MSC Cruises (UK), MSC Poesia is our very own poem to the sea. She is such a lovely ship that it's easy to wax lyrical about a cruise aboard MSC Poesia, just as it's easy to imagine yourself on a private balcony - there are 809 cabins with balcony to choose from - overlooking the ocean under a star-filled sky. During the summer months MSC Poesia cruises European waters taking in the majesty of the Norwegian fjords and the history and culture of the Baltic states. As summertime packs its bags and leaves Europe, MSC Poesia heads south for the perpetual carnival that is South America. If you're lucky enough to enjoy a cruise aboard MSC Poesia you'll discover luxury cruising at its best. Like her sisters, MSC Poesia is designed with an eye for the spectacular. On board you'll find a waterfall with bridges in the foyer, a zen garden in the sushi bar and a serene 13,000 square foot spa. And as well as looking after you, MSC Poesia, our third Musica class ship, also looks after the environment with the latest eco-technology.Suites and staterooms are spacious and elegant and most have private balconies. When you're out and about you can enjoy a glass of something with a certain vintage from the well stocked cellars of Il Grappolo d'Oro, or perhaps you'd prefer the casual ambience of the outdoor Mojito Bar? From casino to theatre and spa to cigar room, MSC Poesia has something for everyone. Naturally we look after the kids too, with all manner of activities and a delightful Stone Age dinosaur-themed play area! For all MSC Poesia departure dates, click here. Just as poetry brings lasting pleasure, the magnificent MSC Poesia cruise ship introduces a new dimension of enjoyment to the art of travelling by ship.
