MSC Cruises has launched a limited series of themed cruises, bringing shopping lovers to the Mediterranean’s finest boutiques and retailers during the sales, from the immaculate chic of Rome’s designer stores to the bustle and barter of a Tunisian souk.
The seven-night Shopping Cruises, starting from only $549 per person, twin share, will depart from Genoa, Italy, on 11, 18 and 25 January 2015, and call at Civitavecchia (Rome), Palermo, La Goulette (Tunis), Barcelona and Marseille.
Included in the cruise fare is an excursion to one shopping hotspot, depending on embarkation port.
For those joining in Genoa it’s La Roca Village, near Barcelona, home to more than 100 luxury and lifestyle brands at prices reduced by up to 60 per cent.
MSC Cruises will also be hosting on-board activities during the Shopping Cruises based around the theme. On board, guests can enjoy a captivating entertainment programme, with different shows every night. And if you haven’t had your fill of shopping during the day, take a stroll around MSC’s onboard fashion and jewellery boutiques, or take advantage of fabulous shopping events and discover the secrets of successful make-up artists.
