Pick of the Week

Pick of the Week is here, our weekly appointment where MSC Cruises’ team of experts selects a ‘must-see’ destination amongst the many incredible ones we cruise to.
That is not all, to make your holiday even more memorable, we are offering £100 onboard spend per cabin on selected cruises, to all guests booking a balcony or a suite cabin, including the MSC Yacht Club!


This week’s pick is Barcelona, the most-visited city in Spain, known for its amazing architecture, fabulous cuisine, and endless energy. Despite the must-see landmarks, such as picturesque Gaudi-style buildings, secret spots are a thrilling experience to uncover.


Did you know that Barcelona became the only city to be awarded a Gold Medal for Architecture by the Royal Institute of British Architects? The captivating architecture can be found in the ‘Eixample’ district alongside the extraordinary Art Nouveau buildings.


Be ready to experience the alternative side of this vibrant city and get lost in the labyrinthine Gothic Quarter for some unforgettable discoveries such as the ancient Roman walls in the winding streets of the ‘Old Town’. If you are looking for an extraordinary view, the ‘Bunkers del Carmel’ has a 360° panoramic and highly recommended place for a breath-taking sunset. The secret spot to visit is the Church of Saint Philip Neri which was bombed several times, and to this day, you can see all the scars from the bombing on the church’s exterior walls.


Don’t delay, now it is your turn to pick your cruise!
