MSC Cruises is offering passengers the chance to “move up the world” with a free upgrade on a selected number of its Grand Mediterranean cruises. Furthermore, the family-owned cruise line is offering complimentary transfers between Venice and Genoa to link the back-to-back seven-night Eastern and Western Mediterranean cruises which make up the Grand Mediterranean package.
The offers apply to combo bookings on MSC Armonia and MSC Sinfonia from July 20 until October 19, 2012, as well as MSC Splendida and the yet-to-be-launched MSC Divina (pictured here) in October, 2012.
The upgrades deal means you could pay for an inside category one cabin only to find yourself boosted to a category six to 10 ocean view cabin on some of the cruises - so you can have an ocean view cabin from just $1318 per person, twin share for a combo cruise on MSC Armonia and MSC Sinfonia in October. That’s 14 nights for less than $100 a night with the free transfer between ships (Venice and Genoa) thrown in. Impressive value!
On the program, the MSC Armonia sets sail from Venice and calls on Ancona in Italy, Corfu, Greece’s Santorini, Athens and Atgostoli before cruising to Kotor in Montenegro and back to Venice.
Passengers are then transferred to Genoa where they board MSC Sinfonia for a round cruise which includes calls on Civitavecchia (Rome), Salemo (Amalfi Coast), Tunis, Ibiza, Palma and Marseille.
In October, with prices starting at $1598 with an upgrade to a category 4 or 5 ocean view cabin, MSC Divina will cruise from Venice to Bari, Katakolon (Olympia), Izmir, Istanbul and Dubrovnik before the passenger transfer to Genoa for a cruise aboard MSC Splendida to Barcelona, Tunis, Valletta, Messina and Civitavecchia (Rome) and back to Genoa.
The MSC Divina will be christened by screen legend Sophia Loren at a gala ceremony in Marseille in late May, and the ship’s maiden voyage will be a six-nighter from Marseille to Venice before it begins a series of seven-night East Mediterranean cruises, prices from $939 per person twin share.
