A magical experience on the bridge between Europe and Africa
The fascinating natural beauties of this African land, the fine sand of its extensive shorelines, together with the slow and relaxed rhythm of the beautiful villages on the coast, will welcome you to a unique experience and make you fall in love with the area.
On an MSC Mediterranean Cruise, you will visit Morocco, a land of sunsets, where European and Muslim cultures come together in an enchanting mix, full of great stories from the past to tell to the most attentive of minds. You will find a dimension of complete harmony between the splendid colours of Casablanca and Marrakesh, the beaches of the Atlantic coast and the frenzy of the lively markets in the souks.
An MSC Excursion will reveal the complexity of this original and ancient land, whose horizon soon changes the sea into mountains, but also Mediterranean landscapes into a fascinating desert. The thousands of years of history lived, the traditions and the numerous dynasties that have followed coexist with the modernity of an ambitious people: new and old in Morocco embrace, mix and need each other to make this land extraordinarily magical.
Immersing yourself in the essence of Casablanca will be fabulous. Thanks to an MSC Excursion you will discover the most European of Morocco's cities, but also its Moroccan expression, with neighbourhoods where you will find the nuances of the Arab cultural heritage and at the same time the rich legacy of the colonial era. Visit the medina and sip a mint tea and stroll through the centre of the city among the jewel-like buildings inspired by Art Deco.
Take the time to explore all the nuances of dreamland on an MSC Excursion and when you arrive at the Hassan II mosque, give yourself time to embrace this modern sacred wonder, designed by French architect Pinseau. Built on water and inaugurated in 1993, it is one of the largest mosques in the world.
