Casablanca: Art Deco architecture fused with North African elements
Forever immortalized by the classic movie of the same name, Casablanca is Morocco's modern metropolis.
Casablanca grew rapidly from a small settlement into a sprawling city of three million and even though it is not one of the famous imperial cities, Casablanca offers visitors a rare experience.
Everything is bigger here: the streets, the hotels, the office blocks and the slums. The people themselves say that; "Casablanca has no memory and no past, only a future."
A rich heritage of Art Deco architecture fused with North African elements acts as a tangible reminder of the city’s French colonial past.
Casablanca itself holds enough to provide a fabulous day away from your MSC cruise ship and film buffs will revel in the pleasure of being ‘on location’ in this legendary romantic city. However, this destination is also a great place from which to explore other well-known cities in the area. Cruise passengers that join us on our full day excursions packages to Rabat, Fez or Marrakech will really be making the most of their Mediterranean cruise vacation as they pack a great deal of authentic sights and attractions into their holiday experience.
Once you are off the ship you will immediately be transported into a world of colors and flavors as we offer you the best ways to get a feel for local life and culture.
From unique shopping in the magical bazaars to visiting sacred mosques, Casablanca and its environs offers a taste of the Western Mediterranean that is simply unrivalled.
