Ever dreamed of a romantic cruise through some of the Mediterranean's best wine trails? MSC Cruises has come to the rescue. Now, they're offering a limited series of exotic journeys through tantalising flavours and cultures (perfect for the couple who knows a thing or two about food and wine!)
Three wine-themed cruises are available for guests to choose from, each involving on-board tastings with wine legends and visits to wineries around the Mediterranean. Delight your palate and hone your knowledge through these exciting adventures!
From Provence to Barcelona to Civitavecchia, there's a wealth of wineries and history to discover. On The Wine Routes will immerse you and your sweetheart in this fascinating world of wine production, trade and tradition. You'll experience city tours, enlightening talks, local wine tastings and insights from Masters of Wine (leading experts on the art, science and business of wine).
And as an added bonus? The cruise package includes one excursion to a wine producer or cellar in Barcelona, and a high-quality beverage package, comprising superior wines, onboard meals and a bottle of fine sparkling wine on Gala Night.
MSC Cruises' CEO, Gianni Onorato, is thrilled about the new venture. "Many people enjoy a glass of good wine, but some want to take this a step further and learn more about wine, its production, history and so on. On the Wine Routs is a unique change to discover more about wine in different countries under expert guidance, in an unhurried and enjoyable way," he explains. Doesn't that sound like absolute bliss?
The eight-day, seven-night cruises on MSC Splendida will depart from Genoa, Italy, on November 2, November 9 and December 14. You'll be treated to stops in Italy (Naples and Messina for couples travelling in November; Civitavecchia and Palermo for couples travelling in December), Tunisia, Spain and France, too! Cruises are priced from AUD$664 per person, twin share.
