The above price is per person, twin share, based on a 19 August 2018 departure from Sydney. Fly from Brisbane or Perth for an extra $100; Melbourne for an extra $350. Other departure dates are available - the prices may vary depending on the departure date.
Fly from Australia to London, where the weather will be warm and the days long, so you can join in as many outdoor activities as possible. We recommend drinking a traditional fruity Pimms on a rooftop terrace and visit Green and Hyde Park. After your three- night stay, board MSC Magnifica and cruise to Le Havre in France's Normandy region before La Coruna in Spain, which Lonely Planet says is "an intriguing place to discover" with its fine-dining scene, pretty beaches and colourful nightlife.
Other trip highlights during your cruise could be visiting museums and seeing the picturesque canals in Amsterdam, and dine at harbourside venues in Hamburg -- The Telegraph recommends trying a Fischbrötchen while there, which is a traditional fresh fish sandwich.

Cruise Critic's Editor has given MSC Magnifica a 4/5 and praises its multitude of bars (there are 12 in total), deck pool and large fitness area. There's also an "excellent spa" where you can treat yourself to a traditional Balinese massage, beauty treatments, sauna, or a Turkish bath.
