Western Mediterranean


This summer you are spoilt for choice as you explore the Western Med with us.

The sights of Valencia and Barcelona could also be savoured once the local port authorities give the go-ahead!

MSC Seaside, back sailing since May 1st, offers weekly cruises departing from Genoa and will include new stops like fascinating Siracusa in Sicily and Taranto in Apulia. The splendours of Rome and the beauty of Malta can also be enjoyed on this trip, while the stop in Malta will be replaced with Marseille from the 4th July. The ship is called MSC Seaside, so it’s only right there’s than an exclusive private beach experience at Taranto, next to the Ionian’s crystal-clear waters.

Finally, from 1st August, MSC Seashore will be joining our fleet as our flagship. What better way to celebrate than to treat yourself to a 7-night cruise onboard?
