London, UK – Friday 21 October: MSC Cruises is announcing a new must-see destination each week. Customers booking specific cruises calling at the ‘Pick of the Week’ destination will benefit from exclusive incentives including £100 onboard credit.
This week, MSC Cruises is celebrating Cherbourg, one of France’s greatest channel ports, steeped in naval history – even the Titanic once stopped there! From Monday 24 October until Sunday 30 October, customers booking on the selected cruises in a balcony cabin and above (including MSC Yacht Club) will receive a credit of £100 to be spent on board during their trip.
Here are our top five ways to experience Cherbourg’s harbour and naval history.
After a busy day of exploring there are plenty of opportunities to relax and recharge on board MSC Virtuosa and fabulous options to use the £100 credit for special, memorable experiences.
With 21 bars and 9 dining venues, there is something for everyone, including two tantalising dining concepts. Indochine offers savoury Vietnamese classics with a French twist, and Hola! Tacos & Cantina is the fleet’s first street food dining concept, featuring all the favourite Mexican dishes.
After dinner, guests can take in one of the two shows onboard – with a mix of acrobatics, dance and live music, in the Carousel Lounge. On board MSC Virtuosa, guests have the unique opportunity to admire two spectacular productions: AJEDREZ, inspired by the game of chess, and ARKYMEA, the story of a scientist in search of a hidden world. These shows can be enjoyed with a complimentary signature cocktail.
For a bit of luxury, MSC Aurea Spa offers a variety of treatments for both couples and individuals to further guests’ relaxation. Choose from a selection of treatments, including massages and facials. The Thermal Area has saunas, steam rooms, ice & snow rooms and whirlpools for the ultimate wellbeing experience.
Cruises included in this offer feature a seven-day cruise from 29 October leaving from Southampton and stopping at Hamburg, Rotterdam, Zeebrugge, and Le Havre before returning to the UK via Southampton. Prices start from £519 for a balcony cabin. A full list of eligible itineraries can be found below.
