Most destinations offer both beach and city, sun and activity. Press picture, MSC Cruises.

Many ask me when to cross? It's like asking a wine expert what wine to drink for the food! 🙂 The answer is that of course it depends entirely on what food is served, which occasion is - maybe even the company and the time of year.

Year of the crossing year

The same thing is with cruises. Certainly, in some parts of the world you can cross the year, like Caribbean for example. But, as you know, the weather has not been the best lately (a risk you can take if you go between May-October / November).

I myself like to have a "cruise year" where I think of different destinations at different times of the year. It also has to do with how long "leave" (though in my case it's work, but leave from the desk in the office) I can take.

Weather and distance

Now for example, I do not want to go to the US / Caribbean and not only because of the weather, it's too far I think if I can not be away for at least two weeks, which I can not now. So it's going to cross the home - that is, the Baltic Sea that I always tick a lot and write about as you know - or destinations such a 5-6 hours away.

Mediterranean Sea may offer nice temperatures all the time in October, but later it will not be chopped or painted. Instead, I turn my eyes on either Canary Islands -or Dubai!

Cruises with MSC Cruises

We have crossed the Canary Islands a couple of years ago, a very nice trip you can read lots of here on the site (just search for MSC Armonia or the Canary Islands), but last but not least it was Dubai we departed from and even the cruise we did MSC Cruises (vessel MSC Fantasia).

Dubai is a very attractive destination, so we spent spending a few days on the spot before we started our cruise, and the hotel we stayed at and I would like to tell you in the next post is called Fairmont The Palm. Are you looking for a truly luxurious, comfortable hotel that is also located on The Palm - this is it!

Ps.
This year, MSC Fantasia's sister ship, MSC Splendida, makes the Dubai cruises. Booking before 31 / 10 includes drinks (at meals when booking an outside cabin and unlimited 24 hours a day when booking a balcony cabin)!

If you want to go out to the Canary Islands with the same shipping company, MSC Cruises, both MSC Orchestra and MSC Fantasia depart from Barcelona and launch any port on any of the Canary Islands in winter.
