It’s the season to be jolly! Nothing beats the romanticism of a white Christmas in Europe; snowflakes falling, glühwein pouring, and carols by candlelight.

Keen on a mini ocean voyage? Set sail on a local cruise with MSC. For South Africans, local cruises are the perfect option for families with children under 18 (kids cruise free on MSC!). They are also an excellent choice for groups of friends who want long lazy days and party-packed nights. Plus, if you’re a first-time cruiser, spending a few nights offshore is an excellent way to test your sea legs.
Mention trips to Ireland and most people conjure up images of shamrocks, Celtic ruins, or fiddle-and-song pubs with free-flowing Guinness and traditional Irish music tempting you in for yet another pint and a jig.
