Cruising to magnificent tropical islands
A Caribbean sea holiday, offering white beaches, clear sea, barrier reefs and lush vegetation, is the dream of many. With MSC this dream can come true. Set sail for a Virgin Islands Cruise to discover the places once controlled by infamous pirates, such as Black Beard.
The Virgin Islands, located to the east of Puerto Rico, were originally named by Christopher Columbus, who called them the “Archipelago of Saint Ursula and the 11,000 Virgins”, in honor of Saint Ursula and her followers.
The archipelago is politically divided with some of the islands under British rule and the rest under American rule.
The capital of the British Virgin Islands is Road Town. It is located on the island of Tortola, famed for its beaches, which stand out against the backdrop of the sugar cane plantations, and for the famous Callwood Rum Distillery, where you can taste one of the best rums in the world.
The capital of the American Virgin Islands is Charlotte Amalie, located on Saint Thomas Island. The island features Drake’s Seat, the best panoramic vantage point from which to see the islands in their entire splendor. This is the point from which Sir Francis Drake would observe his fleet.
