MSC Bellissima: 7-Night Mediterranean Cruises in Autumn and Winter Starting at €419 pp

MSC Bellissima

It’s usually hard to find 7-night Mediterranean cruises below €500 including taxes and tips. However, MSC now brings you excellent prices for many dates from several embarkation points starting at just £364 (~€413) including full board, tips and taxes. The ship does continuous circuits docking in Naples, La Spezia (Florence), Genoa, Marseille, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca.

The great part of this deal is that you can depart from all six docking points. So you can choose whichever departure point fits you best. To book your cruise, just head to the landing page and select your departure port from the top of the page. After that, Logitravel will list all departure dates in all cabins. The cheapest inside cabin costs £364 (~€413), outside cabins (£498 (~€565)) and balcony cabins (£648 (~€735)) aren’t especially cheap. You can depart at least once every month from November to March.


Currently, all MSC passengers have to take a PCR or antigen test 48 hours before embarkation. Passengers above 18 years, have to be vaccinated according to MSC’s health protocol. We suggest frequently checking MSC’s health protocol.

On MSC Cruises, you have full-day access to the buffet restaurant, where you can drink cold and hot beverages free of charge. For drinks anywhere else (except for the main dinner in the restaurant), you need to pay unless you purchase a drinks package or an all-inclusive offer. You have access to the gym, pools, and jacuzzis, however, a fee applies for the spa.


A discount of various rates (5-15%) applies if one of the conditions is met:

  • both guests are aged above 65.
  • both guests are aged between 18 and 29.
  • the guests are on a honeymoon.
  • the guests include one adult and up to three children below 18.

If you have previously sailed with MSC Cruises and are an MSC Voyagers member, you are also entitled to a discount. You only have to enter your membership number and Logitravel will calculate your price accordingly. If you have cruised with them, but you’re not a member, you can register here.

You can find more information about the discounts on the cruise page on Logitravel. You have to enter the guests’ age and they will calculate the appropriate price. To give you an example, I got a £73 (~€83) discount (from the cabin price) as a young person and £33 (~€37) as an MSC Voyagers Club member after 2 MSC cruises. This brings me an approximate 15% savings from the total price

Getting to your port

Wherever you start your cruise from, we highly recommend arriving there a day early to have a buffer day. Otherwise, you would miss the whole cruise if something goes wrong.

To search for the best flight, you can take a look at our flight search. Just enter your origin and select your destination and date. Other than the airports of the departure ports, we also included Milan (for Genoa), Pisa (for La Spezia or Genoa), and Nice (for Marseille and Genoa).
