Where the fashionable youthful cities of Barcelona and Madrid contrast with sleepy fishing villages along the famous ‘costas’. From the Toreador to the Flamenco dancer, Spain is full of passion and romance and we will help you uncover the heart of this country as you travel with MSC Cruises to a variety of destinations.
The Mediterranean Sea lies along Spain’s south and east shores, and France lies to the north. Part of the European Union, the currency is the euro and Spanish is the local language, although English is widely spoken. Architecture varies all across the country with diverse influences ranging from Roman and Moorish to Gothic and Romanesque. Today, this tradition continues as the country commissions exciting and daring buildings in major cities such as Bilbao, Barcelona, and Madrid.
Your cruise holiday in Spain will be marked by the Spanish zest for life and enjoyment of life’s pleasures. From the very civilized siesta in the afternoons (note that many shops close from 2 -5, and open again in the evening) to dishes such as tapas that are made for sharing, the Spanish have a particular way of life which is very appealing.
