Our 10th cruise in c 20 years.

Cruise Points- MSC Fantasia, Eastern Mediterranean Fly-Cruise. March 16.

If you like P&O you probably will not like MSC. MSC is much more International/European though English is spoken everywhere, except for some of the deckhands. Many staff are from Indonesia, so have English as their first “foreign language”. Most passengers were, in order, Italian, French, German, Central European, Chinese, USA, with very few British indeed. We did this cruise for the itinerary; 11 nights from Genoa, going for 2 nights in Haifa and the rest around the Eastern Med stopping at Katakolon (for Olympia) Pireus (for Athens) Rhodes (Half day really, leaving at 2pm) Haifa (two nights), Iraklion/Heraklion, Civitavecchia, Genoa.
