After leaving Southampton, the MSC Opera heads to IJmuiden (for Amsterdam) in the Netherlands and St Peter Port in Guernsey before reaching Vigo in northwest Spain. Vigo is in Galicia, a region known for its beautiful beaches and seafood. The ship then sails to the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, Bilbao (an "exciting and cultured city", according to Lonely Planet,) and Rouen in France. The cruise ends back in Southampton.
The price is based on two sharing an Inside Cabin. Pay £100 more for an Ocean View Cabin. Balcony Suites are available on 25 August for £849 per person.
MSC Opera has a show lounge, a nightclub, a casino, a spa and a good mix of bars and lounges, including the Cotton Club bar and a piano bar. Dining options include the ship's two main restaurants and the more casual Le Vele Cafeteria.
Upgrade to all-inclusive board for £199 more per person.
