Destinations: MSC Magnifica itineraries
The MSC Magnifica splits her schedule between Europe and South America, visiting ports in destinations such as Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. The shore excursions available will of course depend on your chosen itinerary, but you can expect a good mix to choose from at each port. There will be options to suit all interests and activity levels, from a cooking class in Venice to a bike tour in Buenos Aires.

Things to remember: On board the MSC Magnifica
Here are a few helpful hints to keep in mind as you plan your holiday onboard the MSC Magnifica.

  • Daily gratuities are not included in your cruise fare or automatically added to your account, so it's best to tip the attentive staff a few euros each day or as you see fit.
  • Be prepared to hear some announcements repeated in different languages, with staff having to cater for English, French, German, Spanish and Italian speakers.
  • The dress code is casual day and night, although for those who love dressing up there is usually at least one formal evening per sailing.
  • Families with children are well-looked after, with organised youth programmes for kids aged 3 to 17.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
