FANCY spending summer at sea, sipping cocktails made by a robot bartender as you sail around the sun-soaked Med?
Sun readers can now bag themselves exclusive offers with MSC Cruises as part of our Sun Like It Hot campaign, including up to £200 per person to spend on board.
This year, the new 19-deck MSC Virtuosa will be returning to Southampton for its second summer season and there’s some cracking itineraries lined up for sun-seekers, explorers and families.
Adventurers can set sail on a seven-night trip around the Norwegian Fjords, hiking across glaciers and admiring waterfalls from £649pp, departing on May 13.
Passengers will explore the ancient Viking settlement of Haugesund and take an excursion to the spectacular Langfoss waterfall, cascading 600 metres down a steep mountainside.
Then you’ll stop at Hellesylt, where foodies can visit the Herald Summer Farm and sample local delicacies.
It’s well worth a visit to the Briksdal glacier while you’re here.
It sits within a rugged national park and is said to be one of the most beautiful in the county, surrounded by lush vegetation and grey rock.
