7 nights, from 449 €/person!
MSC Musica not only launched a new class of ecological cruise ship, she launched a new class of cruise. Life aboard is beautiful from the moment you step on board; from the central foyer’s three-tier waterfall to its see-through piano, floating suspended on a crystal floor above a pool of shimmering water. The delightfully varied cuisine on this beautiful ship excels – all freshly prepared in the traditional manner from prime ingredients. Indulge in succulent Italian gourmet specialities in Il Giardino, treat yourself to the Kaito Sushi Bar, or explore a luscious array of authentic Italian pizzas. Children and young adults enjoy the special treatment typical of MSC’s Mediterranean way of life, with indoor and outdoor play amenities, a pool of their own and separate Kids and Teens Clubs for a vibrant social life on board.
Day 1: Piraeus, Greece – Board the ship, settle into your cabin and it’s time to explore! Foyer, lounges & bars, restaurants, spa, sports facilities, disco, playground, swimming pools, live music and performance areas…
Day 2: Santorini, Greece – Approximately 200-km southeast of mainland Greece, lies Santorini, a Cyclades Island. The picturesque village of Oia lies on an edge of the volcanic caldera overlooking the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. This MSC Cruises excursion takes you to this magnificent town and its picturesque houses carved into the cliffs. Photograph the iconic churches with their blue domes and enjoy the breathtaking views. Then explore small shops and cafes before joining a wine tasting with local delicacies. If you’re a keen history buff, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the archaeological site of Akrotiri. This Minoan Bronze-Age settlement was covered in ash by the catastrophic Theran volcanic eruption around 16th-century B.C.
Day 3: Kusadasi, Turkey – Kusadasi and Ephesus, are MSC Mediterranean Cruises destinations. Not far from modern-day Selcuk lies ancient Ephesus, a city that’s peppered with romantic remains spanning classical Greece to the Roman Empire. Spend the day admiring the Grand Theatre or marvel at one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the majestic Temple of Artemis. Make a pilgrimage to the House of the Virgin Mary, where St. Mary, the mother of Jesus, supposedly spent the last years of her life.
Day 4: On board – Activities of your choice. Choose from the daily schedule the services and activities you want to try!
Day 5: Haifa (Jerusalem), Israel – Haifa is the gateway to discover the splendour of Israel’s cities, such as Jerusalem, as well as fascinating places full of history, such as Bethlehem. Crossroads between East and West, it is a critical junction for the new Silk Road trades. The Israeli city of Jerusalem and the small Palestinian town of Bethlehem are ready for discovery on an MSC Cruises excursion. Cross the bay to Akko, a historical city in the northern region where you’ll explore an atmospheric bazaar and old cobblestone passages. See the Crusaders’ Halls, Al Jazzar’s Mosque, and Khan el-Umdan (Inn of the Pillars). Discover all the attractions of the Holy Land sites located around the Sea of Galilee. Take a short drive to Nazareth, the birthplace and childhood home of Jesus according to the New Testament. Inside the city, visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, a church built on the site where the Gabriel announced the birth of Jesus.
Day 6: Limassol, Cyprus – Located on the stunning Cypriot coastline, Limassol is a fascinating destination. The city is celebrated for its medieval castle, waterfront sculpture park, and vast array of museums. Beyond Limassol lies the fascinating town of Paphos and a host of natural and archaeological wonders including Millomeri Waterfalls and Apollo’s Sanctuary. Experience an authentic part of Cyprus on an MSC Cruises excursion.
Day 7: Mykonos, Greece – During the 18th-century, Mykonos’ maze of tangled lanes would confuse even the most well-travelled pirates. Discover this glamorous and cosmopolitan town with the world-famous Venetian windmills which date back to the 16th century. Visit the gorgeous Greek island of Delos. This archaeological site overlooks the beautiful Aegean Sea and is considered the mythological birthplace of the sun god Apollo. Soak up the glory of this ancient Greek civilisation and discover the Avenue of Lions, an incredible series of 7th century marble sculptures. Experience the sights of this beautiful Greek island in the comfort of a four-wheel drive vehicle! Visit Kalo Livadi beach, where you can swim in the Mediterranean Sea or stretch out on the sand.
