Bask on beautiful beaches and go wild in famous clubs with MSC Orchestra’s unique new itinerary
With seven days of stunning sights, beautiful beaches and legendary Balearic beats, MSC Orchestra’s 2013 summer cruises are the perfect formula for sun worshippers seeking the very best of the Balearic Islands and other top Mediterranean spots.
From 14 June to 18 October 2013, MSC Orchestra will be departing every Friday from Genoa on a diverse western Mediterranean itinerary spanning from the magnificent monuments of Rome and Palermo to the Balearic beaches of Palma de Mallorca and Ibiza and the charming old town of Villefranche-sur-Mer on the French Riviera.
Specially tailored to include Spain’s famous party islands and their mythical day-to-night transformation, MSC Orchestra’s unique itinerary includes an all new overnight call in Palma de Mallorca and a day and night in Ibiza.
Travellers can explore these popular night spots on their own or make the most of organized excursions such as Ibiza Sunset, a trip to the celebrated sunset strip and world-famous Café del Mar for a spectacular sundown, or Playa D’en Bossa By Night, for an unforgettable evening with the international party crowd at famous nightclubs Space, Ushuaia and Bora Bora.
With the possibilityto buy tickets to the legendary Pacha nightclub directly on board, it couldn’t be easier to enjoy Ibiza’s most famous club, a celebrated symbol of the island as a clubbing mecca, whose legendary experimental spirit has enticed young partygoers since 1973.
During the day, travellers can bask on popular beaches or enjoy Ibiza’s lesser known scenic and cultural spots; the quaint villages, quiet coves and local hippie markets which reveal another face of the island, that of chic retreat for artistic travellers and celebrities. An excursion to neighbouring Formentera is another great option, for a visit to the charming town of Es Pujols and the soft, white sands of an island known for the ravishing beauty of its coastline.
Additional highlights of the cruise include Italy’s stunning capital city, Rome, the beautiful treasure-trove of palaces, castles and churches to be discovered in Palermo, and the fabulous Côte d'Azur region of the French Riviera including Nice and Monaco, just a short journey away from Villefranche-sur-Mer.
Between the calls of this incredibly varied itinerary, travellers will enjoy the fantastic leisure and entertainment facilities on board MSC Orchestra, including swimming pools, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and Bali concept MSC Aurea Spa, or carry on the party in the ship’s bars, lounges and the R32 disco.
