Geneva, 18 September 2014 – Darkening skies, falling leaves, crisp windy mornings: summer’s over and the holidays are but a fading memory. But what better way to beat the seasonal blues than by planning something incredible, exciting and unforgettable, like a Christmas cruise?

MSC Cruises Christmas and New Year packages provide the perfect setting for a fabulous festive experience with a difference. As a family-owned company, MSC Cruises knows how important the festive period is for families, who come together to celebrate and share magical moments.
But why not let MSC Cruises take care of the catering, the entertaining and the tidying up, and give yourself the Christmas of a lifetime?
We’ll deck out our luxurious ships in the best traditional trimmings, with sparkling lights, shimmering decorations and Christmas trees. Over the lapping of the sea, the air will resound with the voices of carol singing choristers, and the journey marked by all the time-honoured traditions that make the period special.
And our expert chefs will create Christmas menus honouring the culinary traditions you know and love. Santa Claus will add some magic during a special event in the onboard theatre, where he’ll present a gift to every child on board. And the young at heart can let their hair down, with Santa Claus contests, live music in bars and lounges, or dancing until the small hours.
We offer a wide range of itineraries across the globe, with something for all tastes. Whether it’s the white beaches of the Caribbean or the Antilles, or the cultural blends of the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands we’ve got the cruise for you. Perhaps Dubai and the Emirates are more your thing, or the southern tip of Africa, with departures from South Africa and calls in Namibia or Mozambique. And if it’s Latino rhythm you seek, then why not sample the coasts of South America and its legendary cities, like Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires?
MSC Cruises also partners with world-renowned brands to enhance the experience on board our ships and give them the best savoir-faire at sea.
MSC has partnered with Chicco to provide an unforgettable experience for families with children – as children under the age of 18 travel for free in their parents’ cabin – thanks to endorsed, dedicated play areas and free use of Chicco products.
Knowing that the children are in safe hands, adults can enjoy the myriad of entertainments, indulge in a wellness treatment in the MSC Aurea Spa, or simply put their feet up and relax.
