Art, night life, music and history and warm and welcoming people

When you sail with MSC Cruises, you’ll stop off at the magical coral island of Barbados. Barbados was discovered by the Portuguese in 1536, but throughout its colonial history, which ended with the Declaration of Independence in 1966, Barbados was under British sovereignty.
Famed for its warm and welcoming people, Barbados moves to the rhythm of the Caribbean and is alive with art, activities, night life, music, history and wonderful dining opportunities.
The island boasts some of the purest water in the world, sourced from underground coral caves and lakes. The island’s colonial history is strongly reflected in the old capital of Bridgetown which has a decidedly English character; so much so that there is even a miniature of London’s Trafalgar Square, complete with a statue of Lord Nelson!
The city is small and there are many excellent walking tours and shopping opportunities for local crafts or in the bigger stylish department stores. Barbados is also home to the famous ‘Turtle Bay’.
Why not make your holiday truly memorable and take part in our excursions that offers the chance to swim in the warm turquoise seas and meet these lovely, peaceful creatures!
