MSC Cruises presents a wide range of offers on worldwide cruises, including last minute deals, all inclusive packages and special rates for families and children to everywhere from the sunny Greek islands to the breathtaking scenery of the Norwegian Fjords.

 

The website is uses a simple aesthetic with all the features you would expect of a cruise line booking site, allowing you to add details of passenger numbers, destinations, dates and departure port to find the cruise most suitable to your preferences. Search results are quick to load and you can easily add more filters to fine-tune what you’re looking for, as well as sorting results by date, price and duration of trip.

 

Once you have chosen your cruise, you can select a room by viewing it in 360 degrees mode, a great feature for gaining a real sense of what to expect. For me, this was better than simply viewing a slideshow of photos as they can sometimes distort or misrepresent what the room really looks like.

 

MSC Voyagers Club offers privileges to guests who book with the company year after year, such as priority boarding, complimentary photos and discounts in on board stores, depending on the type of membership they have. Simply by signing up you will receive 100 points on your membership card, however you must book a cruise with them every three years otherwise the membership will be cancelled, while the highest tier of membership requires 10,000 points. This is stricter than other cruise line loyalty programs that allow you to remain a member indefinitely.

 

There is no blog with useful information or news on cruise liners that may help people find inspiring ideas of where to travel or simply give them advice on how to prepare for a cruise with MSC. The addition of a blog would undoubtedly make the website more inclusive.
