Thira, Santorini
Santorini is the very essence of Greek charm. Sugar-cube houses cling to the cliffs. Vivid blue church domes add a splash of colour. And steep cliff-sides tumble into an impossibly clear sea. Just beautiful. Sample the wine or the cliff top views, the terraced bars and restaurants or the ancient Roman ruins on Santorini.

Ancona
The port city of Ancona is on the Adriatic Sea on the east coast of Italy, in the Marche region. Cruise ships from both the Costa Crociere Group and MSC Group regularly stop in Ancona, although it’s not a major port of call for most Mediterranean cruises. Right in Ancona there is evidence of both Roman and Greek settlements, and there is a hilltop cathedral in the city

Had the most amazing time cruising the Mediterranean and would definitely recommend to anyone :) At first i was quite hesitant to go on the cruise because it was during Christmas and the year before i spent Christmas on the M25! However,i was completely wrong and every single penny me and my family spent on this cruise was worth it. the MSC Sinfonia is a marvellous ship with many things to do for the whole family, including really fun clubs for kids with heir own designated rooms depending on their age, a panoramic gym, a theatre with amazing inclusive shows and so much more. Also there is an amazing entertainment crew that puts so much effort from hosting parties and mini dance classes in the disco to warmly welcoming you into the theatre. All the staff are so nice and helpful. as well as all this, the food on MSC Sinfonia is exquisite, i am not a big foodie myself however i was very impressed by the number of restaurants, bars and buffets they had, all with big ranges of continental food made to suit anyone's taste. Overall i genuinely loved this cruise and its dedication and organisation into everything. First time i have desperately wanted to go back on the same holiday. Really looking forward to cruising with MSC again!?????????

There were exceptions Breina who worked in Buddha bar was extremely professional and Indra our cabin steward room 1024 was excellent Cramped dining facilities in dining room and not enough tables in buffet bar. Not enough dinningchoice and entertainment was mediocre. The pianists and guitarists in the bar were very good Silly times In and out of port. Made seeing cities in dark and rushed
