    From the land of the windmills to the caliente Spain. An MSC cruise to Northern Europe is an excellent opportunity to visit some of the most fascinating cities of the Atlantic coast of Spain and the North Sea.

    The Spanish leg of the cruise will take you to the port of Bilbao, one of the most important cities in Basque Country, and to Vigo and Ferrol, cities of the colourful Galizia. Bilbao will enchant you with its historic centre, a maze of alleyways in which delicious cups of coffee are a continuous temptation, and the extraordinary lines of the Guggenheim Museum, a museum of contemporary art. Vigo is an extremely scenic natural port enlivened by the restaurants, shops and kiosks lining its seafront. Ferrol is also a very old city. A short distance away, close to La Coruña, there is one of the few light houses built by ancient Romans still standing, the Tower of Hercules.  A cruise along northern Spain also has spiritual appeal.

    Along the Atlantic coast of the Iberian Peninsula, there are setting off points for Santiago de Compostela, the destination of pilgrims from around the world anxious to visit the city’s great cathedral with its altar dedicated to Apostle James.
