Regular readers of this blog will be aware that earlier this year I cruised the Mediterranean on the MSC Preziosa and was very pleasantly surprised at what an enjoyable experience it was.
I learned that the key to enjoying a cruise is to choose one that visits exciting ports that you really want to explore (sorry Mackay and Rockhampton, that counts you out).
Well, MSC Cruises on Tuesday launches its 96-hour sale on selected itineraries - the last major sale for the 2013 European summer cruising season.
MSC Cruises is now the world’s third-largest cruise company and is offering discounts of up to 46% on cruises that include ports in Europe, the Middle East and the Caribbean from just $379 per person for a seven-night cruise, including all meals.
The sale will include a variety of itineraries including 2013 Mediterranean cruises from Venice, Rome, Barcelona and Genoa. There are also cruises on sale from Rio de Janeiro to Genoa on-board MSC Orchestra, or MSC Musica's Caribbean to Mediterranean cruises in 2014.
Caribbean cruises from Miami on-board MSC Divina also feature, starting from $429.
The sale runs from 9am on July 23 to 9am July 27 (AEST). The cruise I did on the Preziosa starts from $1,099 with a twin-share balcony cabin and is much cheaper with an interior cabin.
