Best Cruise Lines

Imagine a luxurious Mediterranean resort. Now imagine that resort afloat, cruising through the Bahamas, along the coast of West Africa, or perhaps on a Transatlantic Grand Voyage. With their warm Italian hospitality and classic European design featuring marble and Swarovski crystal, MSC Cruises invites passengers to sail in style. Signature restaurant La Cucina Italiana showcases modern Mediterranean cuisine, while Aurea Spa travels the world with its array of treatments. Two of the fleet's 12 ships, the MSC Splendida and the MSC Fantasia, offer the MSC Yacht Club — a singular ship-within-a-ship experience. Families love MSC because children 11 and under travel free when staying in their parents' stateroom. Eco-travelers value the company's commitment to social responsibility. The cruise line implements recycling and energy conservation policies and has a partnership with UNICEF to aid in efforts to be environmentally friendly.
