MSC Cruises sailing year-round from Southampton

MSC sails from UK & offers Fly-Cruise packages from UK airports


MSC Cruises has always been a game-changer in the cruise industry and that’s one of the reasons why they have so many loyal guests. A cruise line that offers luxury and adventure, but often at a lower cost than their competitors. The MSC Cruises fleet is vast and varied, and each ship offers something different. All are great for family cruise holidays, but they’re equally as good for couples and solo travellers – especially on no-fly departures directly from the UK.

Summer 2022 no-fly cruises aboard MSC Magnifica are proving hugely popular, and they’re backed by the introduction of MSC Virtuosa – sailing from Southampton from April 29th. She will begin with a mini-cruise to Guernsey before embarking on a Mediterranean sailing – her final of the season – which will depart Southampton on November 4th. MSC Preziosa will arrive in October and offer UK cruisers several sailings right through until April 2023. We have some great deals available right now on MSC Cruises March and April last minute departures – check out our deals page for more info.

For those of you hoping for a fly-cruise option, then look no further than MSC Cruises’ Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises this summer. Again, there are great offers available and amazing destinations to head into and explore. Destinations include Genoa, Messina, Palermo, Santorini, Barcelona, Valletta and more. We must admit that we love a summer cruise in the Mediterranean. The smells, sounds and overall vibrancy of the region really shine through. It’s a busy time and that does mean more people, but it’s also when the best events and markets are also showcased.

When it comes to winter sun, MSC Cruises have that covered too! The Caribbean is calling, and we think it would be rude of you not to answer. You can sail aboard several ships, including MSC Divina, MSC Seascape, MSC Meraviglia and MSC Seaside. The entire region is covered! Sailings range from 7-to-15-nights and can be extended by booking back-to-back sailings or even choosing to extend pre-or-post cruise with a land-based stay. Our experts can advise on this at the time of booking. The majority of Caribbean sailings with MSC Cruises depart from either Miami or Port Canaveral, but those aboard MSC Meraviglia depart from Bridgetown in Barbados.

Don’t forget, MSC Cruises offer several experience options onboard: Bella, Fantastica and Aurea. There’s also the MSC Yacht Club. Each offers something slightly different – from upgraded cabins to priority boarding. Whatever you choose with MSC will not leave you disappointed, but at least you do have the option to upgrade your onboard experience should you wish to do so. There are also speciality dining options to enjoy. These do incur an additional charge, but they are worth it, and we highly recommend them.

Packages are available on fly-cruise options and all sailings can be upgraded to all-inclusive. In fact, the all-inclusive options currently available for MSC Magnifica are selling fast, but to benefit from these big savings, you must book before the end of March 2022 – these offers are limited.
