La Rochelle, France
La Rochelle is a coastal city in southwestern France and is often known as La Ville Blanche ‘the White City’ and the stunning city’s luminous limestone facades glow in the bright coastal sunlight. Discover the 600 different species at Aquarium La Rochelle or climb up the spectacular 158 spiral steps of Tour de la Lanterne to savour panoramic views of the city. Journey back in time and visit the Musée Maritime, highlights include the trio of retired boats moored there. Musée du Nouveau Monde and Musée des Beaux-Arts are both well-worth a visit too. Savour delicious seafood at the waterfront seafood café, Andre.

Bilbao, Spain
Discover the cosmopolitan Basque city and lively port of Bilbao. Surrounded by verdant green mountains, this city in northern Spain is home to the breathtaking modern and contemporary art at the Guggenheim Museum. Sample authentic tapas dishes in the family-run restaurants that line Casco Viejo, Bilbao's vibrant old quarter, and shop for handmade souvenirs at quirky independent boutiques. The modern transport links provide easy access to the two other capitals of the Basque Country — Vitoria and San Sebastián.

La Coruña, Spain
La Coruña overlooks the Bay of Coruña in the north-west corner of Spain. Step ashore and visit the Tower of Hercules, Castillo de San Anton, and Castillo de San Diego. Explore the Roman wall, historical buildings and the medieval Church of Santiago in Ciudad Vieja. Get a culture hit at the Museum of Sacred Art, Archaeological Museum and Military Museum. People-watch at La Marina and Plaza Maria Pita, or relax on the Playa Riazor and Playa del Orzan beaches. Enjoy some family fun at Aquarium Finisterrae, Science Museum and Domus — an interactive museum. Venture further afield to visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Santiago de Compostela, Betanzos and Ferrol.
6
Le Havre, France
A major port in northern France's Normandy region, Le Havre is situated at the mouth of the River Seine. A visit to Le Havre Art Museum with its impressive collections of paintings is a must; perhaps admire the beautiful 'Water Lilies' by Monet? Cathedral Notre-Dame, which has been extensively restored, also offers spectacular sights. Architecture is fascinating in this town; it mainly comprises post-war modern structures, the work of Auguste Perret. The Church of Saint Joseph is a tall building, over 100 metre high, and represents the town’s architecture perfectly. The beach here attracts visitors; the broad promenade is frequently occupied by people soaking up the sunshine. Le Havre is also gateway to the famous sights and attractions of Paris and the Normandy region.

Background
MSC Virtuosa
Overview
MSC Virtuosa’s namesake comes from the word virtuoso, meaning someone highly skilled in music. Each deck will, in fact, be named after a different musical instrument. This new cruise ship will be one of the two largest in MSC Cruises’ fleet, along with her sister ship MSC Grandiosa. One of the highlights of MSC Virtuosa’s onboard entertainment will be the two brand new Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows*, created exclusively for MSC Cruises’ guests. MSC Virtuosa gives guests the best experience with its expanding digital offer, spearheaded by MSC for Me and our digital cruise assistant, Zoe.
