Discover Eastern Med With MSC

Dive into the soul of Eastern Mediterranean civilisation and embark on an historical journey onboard MSC Armonia – from £599pp incl. flights

This summer, MSC Cruises' MSC Armonia will be sailing through the heart of the Mediterranean, uncovering historical and architectural treasures from Italy, Greece and Croatia, the birth place of western civilisation, and following in the footsteps of the great philosophers and builders of empire. Even better, this seven-night cruise starts from just £599 per person, including flights from London.

Between June 7 and November 1, Armonia set off from Venice on this eastern Med odyssey, calling in Ancona (Italy), Dubrovnik (Croatia), Corfu, Gythion and Kefalonia (Greece) and Kotor in Montenegro.

In addition to the many historical and cultural day trips on offer, MSC has also launched a new shore excursion to the beautiful small town of Medjugorje, the site of numerous Christian pilgrimages since 1981 when the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared to six local Catholics. This is possible thanks to an extra-long call in Dubrovnik each Sunday, with Medjugorje situated in the Herzegovina region near the Croatian border.
