9 Nights From

Spoil yourself with gorgeous views and delightful experiences on this amazing 7-night cruise around Spain, France, Italy & Malta.

Begin your holiday flying to Barcelona, where you’ll have two nights to explore this incredible city before boarding your cruise ship, MSC World Europa. This fantastic ship was designed to elevate the delights of a traditional cruise ship to entirely new levels. From her sleek interior design to her 13 dining venues to her thrilling entertainment offerings, the onboard experience is like no other cruise ship. Relax in the scenic Panorama Lounge, experience the excitement of the futuristic Luna Park Arena, or loose yourself in the iconic Kinetic Dome.

Your first port of call is on the French Riviera is Marseille. This atmospheric port city is known for its unique mix of grit and glamour, seen in its labyrinth of streets and historical architecture. Only a few miles from Marseille’s charismatic cafes and bustling Vieux Port, stunning cities are to be found. The cruise then continues onto Genoa(Portofino)  which is the gateway to Italy’s glamorous Riviera. Wander down its winding medieval alleyways, take in historical, Piazza Matteotti, and admire a magnificent cluster of 16th and 17th-century buildings. Genoa’s heritage as a naval power is evident in La Lanterna, a historical lighthouse built in 1543. Beyond the city, romantic towns can be found nestled along the coastline, including the gelati-coloured Portofino.

Next stop at one of Italy’s ancient jewels, Naples which boasts a vibrant historical centre set around a striking harbour bay, discover architectural landmarks, masterpiece artworks, and sumptuous food. The dormant volcano of Mount Vesuvius offers a picture-postcard backdrop. From the city, travel further afield to the archaeological site of Pompeii or take in Capri’s glamorous culture. Next Marvellous Messina, sitting pretty on Sicily’s Ionian Coast, is the ultimate Italian treat. It is noted for its natural beauty and historical sites, including cathedrals, monuments, and museums. Travel south to see stunning sea towns and villages, such as Taormina or visit the famed Mount Etna, an active volcano and a focal point in Greek Mythology.

Your last stop is the island of Malta, cities such as the baroque Valletta and the medieval Mdina unveil the island’s ancient past. Voted European Capital of Culture for 2018, Valetta is home to 16th-century buildings, enlightening museums, and a stunning waterfront promenade. Every year, the city plays host to a number of important village feasts and a colourful carnival.

Finally, you’ll make your way back to Barcelona where your cruise holidays ends.
