MSC Cruises: Unforgettable Sunsets and Bucket List Islands

Ever received a gift 'so you' it left you feeling overwhelmed? With happiness? Yep, that was me receiving a Cruise for a birthday. I was moved to tears.

I say this to say, if you are searching for a moving gift for the wanderluster in your life, consider the gift of a cruise with MSC Cruises. MSC Cruises offers a range of unforgettable journeys, from their Caribbean Islands escape to the mysteries of the Nordics and Greenland. And as well as departing from well known ports such as Miami, Genoa and Dubai, they depart from not-so-well-known ports as New York and Martinique.

One of MSC Cruises' most exciting developments is that of its LNG-powered ships. Leading the way in sustainable practices such as LED lighting, energy-efficient systems, and advanced wastewater treatment to minimize their environmental impact.

Offering luxury and exploration, gifting a cruise allows both you and your special someone or maybe too, the entire family to embark on an adventure that none of you will ever forget. If you want to check those Greek Islands off your list, go island-hopping cruise-style with MSC Cruises.

But if the thought of an entire seven-night cruise seems daunting, test your sea legs with a two or three-night cruise out of Southampton or Miami. An MSC cruise is a harmonious blend of luxury, cultural exploration and family-friendly offerings, making this gift one the entire family can enjoy.

Gift Idea: As Audrey Hepburn once said, 'To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.' Show those on your very nice list, you've been thinking way into your futures with a gift that says investment and long-term planning. Gift a Caribbean cruise on MSC's brand new LNG powered ship, MSC World America setting sail in 2025.
