A Journey Is Best Measured In Friends, Not In Miles

I was always a firm believer in travelling alone, you know, having complete control over what you do and where you go – the freedom of it all was enticing. So travel alone I did… Much to my surprise however, I didn’t actually love it as much as I had told myself I would.

 

When being faced with the beauty and brilliance of a new city and culture, I found myself constantly searching for someone to share the amazing new experience with, for someone to gaze in awe with over the beauty that is Rome, and drool over delectable French pastries with. I found myself constantly annoying family and friends with picture messages of my adventures, telling them how amazing it was to be able to wake up each morning with a different, but just as superb view as the day before, and how much I wished they were there with me.

Recounting stories when I returned home would just not suffice. Besides, there are some things you can’t explain like standing still for a moment in Venice and soaking in the peacefulness that comes with a city where you can’t hear the sound of a single car, and the feeling of utter relaxation after being pampered at MSC Aurea Spa.

And so there it was, my lonesome travels were just that: lonely. I was craving companionship. I was desperately wishing that I had a friend jumping in excitement with me and appreciating the magnificence of new cities. The only thing better than cruising across the world’s most captivating coastlines is having the absolute pleasure of sharing it with friends. As Tim Cahill said, a journey is best measured in friends, not in miles.

To cruise with friends is to discover the undiscovered…
To cruise with friends is to lose track of all concepts of date and time…
To the cruise with friends is to laugh
To cruise with friends is to be carefree…
To cruise with friends is to be overjoyed and overwhelmed with excitement…
To cruise with friends is to try new things, together
To cruise with friends is to share…
To cruise with friends is to soak in the sunshine…
To cruise with friends is to relax by the pool…
To cruise with friends is finding the hilarity in situations only a friend would understand
To cruise with friends is to understand…
To cruise with friends is to adventure…
To cruise with friends is to do absolutely nothing and still have the best time, ever...
To cruise with friends is to revisit your journey over nostalgic coffee dates after it sadly comes to an end…
To cruise with friends is, simply the best.

And there’s always good news. MSC Cruises understands the value of cruising with friends and so our deals for Groups keep getting better and better. Now, if you get together a group of less than 100 passengers for summer 2015 cruises, you’ll only pay the 2014 Prima Price! Just remember a group needs to be 16 people or more, because at MSC we really believe, the more the merrier!

 

 

 I think it’s time to gather your amigos and plan one unforgettable cruise, together.
