Discover the world and celebrate the New Year with a cruise

Nov 12 2015

Is there really any better way to escape the daily grind and routine of life back at home, than to board a luxurious cruise ship, set sail for far-off exciting destinations, and celebrate the start of a new year in style? A cruise holiday is not your average holiday. Visiting fascinating and scenic destinations with unique cultures and breath-taking scenery is only half the experience. No matter which cruise line you choose for your December holiday, you will love every minute on board with the cruise ships boasting the latest amenities, entertainment, and during Christmas and New Year, the best festive season themed parties imaginable.

MSC Holiday Cruises

Besides its other amazing local and international cruises, MSC is hosting a chance of a lifetime cruise around the Mediterranean from the 25th December for 7 nights. You’ll start your cruise in Barcelona, Spain where you can sip on Sangria and devour delicious paella before leaving port and heading off to Marseille in France.

From Marseille you travel to Genoa and then onto the popular Italian port of Civitavecchia where you may be able to spend the day in Rome, as it’s only a 90km car journey to the city. After Civitavecchia meander along the Italian coastline as you head towards Palermo which is on the island of Sicily, and then the small island of Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean.

From Malta you’ll stretch your sea legs as you head off back to Barcelona for a night at sea over New Years Eve, and a party that you won’t soon forget.

Norwegian Cruise Line

This year, Norwegian Cruise Line is offering New Year specific cruises to destinations around the globe. Explore the white sandy beaches of the Caribbean, the delicious cuisine and breath taking scenery of the Mediterranean, or the fascinating coastline and volcanoes of Hawaii.
