The privately-owned Italian cruise line goes cowboy on February 20 with a seven-night Caribbean cruise on MSC Poesia.
MSC Cruises bills itself as “the most modern fleet in the world” with 10 of its’ 11 ships built since 2003 – including MSC Poesia.
The ship has been based in Ft. Lauderdale since October and will return to Europe on April 30 out of New York on an 18-night transatlantic voyage.
Meanwhile, MSC loves theme cruises, and now country music gets a spin around the ocean.
The Bellamy Brothers – Howard and David – have been country music staples for more than 30 years. They’ve had 50 hits combined on the pop and country charts.
Their most famous song is “Let Your Love Flow,” which is No. 68 on BMI’s Top 100 Songs of the Century.
The brothers will have a live one-night show, but other performers will be featured as well. In addition, there will be line dancing lessons and country music karaoke.
The seven-night itinerary out of Ft. Lauderdale includes stops in San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg St. Maarten; Tortola, British Virgin Isles; and Nassau, Bahamas.
Cruise-only rates begin at $419 per person with double occupancy, and as usual on all MSC cruises, kids 17 and younger sail free when sharing a stateroom with two adults.
