One of the most frequent concerns for cruise goers is what to expect when traveling with a cruise line they’ve not yet cruised with before. With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to do a spotlight on some of my favorite cruise lines, and I am starting with MSC Cruise Line. Continue reading to learn more about MSC Cruises.
About MSC Cruises
MSC Cruises is considered to be the leader in Mediterranean cruises, but they also have voyages in to Northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean, North America, South America and South Africa. MSC Cruises is the world’s largest privately-owned cruise line. Their fleet is comprised of 12 ships that cruise year-round in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, and seasonally in other locations.
What to Expect on an MSC Cruise
The goal on all 12 of MSC’s ships is to allow you the opportunity to enjoy a “Mediterranean way of life. From the hospitality to the dining guests are enveloped in the Mediterranean manner of enjoying life to its fullest. Onboard guests are encouraged to slow down and enjoy everything their MSC vacation has to offer.”
While on board you’ll enjoy things like:
- Comfortable staterooms that are cleaned twice daily
- Multilingual staff
- 100% Natural bedding (these ships are very eco friendly)
- High staff to guest ratio
- Daily itineraries so you’ll always know what’s going on both on and off the ship
- And a Cruise Card so you won’t have to carry cash onboard.
MSC is Known for Being Eco Friendly
What sets MSC Cruises apart from many other cruise lines is their commitment to being as eco friendly as possible. They do all they can to reduce fuel consumption, reduce drag, reduce CO2 emissions and protect both the marine and air environments. In 2008 MSC Cruises was the first cruise company in the world to be awarded the coveted ‘6 Golden Pearls’ for its outstanding standards in environmental protection, health and safety. They have won countless awards since then.
Added Perk of Cruising With MSC:
Family travel has never been more affordable! MSC Cruises offers free sailing for kids 11 and younger when they sail with two full fare paying guests in the same state rooms. Children 12 to 17 cruise at a reduced rate.
