Did you know that France is the most visited country in the world?

For guests already familiar with France, this fact will come as no surprise. Few other countries can compete with the magical romance of the capital city Paris, the chic glamour of the Cote d’Azur or the world-class sports and fun to be found in the Alps. Not to mention the picturesque canals that divide the country or the poetic regions of Brittany and Normandy.

From history to gastronomy, France really does have it all. Just remember any attempt to speak the language, however basic, is always appreciated!

With so much to see, MSC Cruises calls in at a whole array of towns and organizes a huge number of great excursion packages. Cherbourg, Le Havre, Toulon, Saint-Malo, Villefranche, Cannes and Marseille are just some of the destinations we visit, all of which act as gateways to places of interest in the surrounding areas. How about the medieval towns of Eze and Aix-en-Provence, the glamorous Nice and Monaco or a memorable outing to the Normandy Landing Beaches?
