Join me as I cruise once again with MSC Cruises. This time I travelled on one of their smaller ships, the MSC Lirica, around the Mediterranean visiting France, Spain, Malta and Italy. On this page I share the articles, videos, audio podcasts and photographs from the trip packed full with observations, tips and advice one cruising the Mediterranean and with MSC Cruises.
This is the route I took:
My “Cruising with MSC Cruises” book looks at the background of MSC Crusies and looks in details at cruising with them on both their smaller ships, like MSC Lirica, as well as the large Fantasia Class ships like MSC Preziosa and MSC Divina. I have also a chapter on general cruising tips and advice like the most common mistakes made and best cruise resources.
