For you cruisers looking to ply the waters of the Med without putting your bank account in the red, your MSC Cruises ship has come in. The Italy-based cruise line has posted a Balcony Bonanza promotion for travelers who book select fall and winter Mediterranean sailings: Nab a balcony stateroom for the same rate as an inside stateroom (from $649 per person on an 8-night itinerary) or upgrade to a balcony superior stateroom for the same standard rate as a regular balcony cabin (from $849).
Dozens of 7- to 11-night voyages are included in the promotion for departures between October and January. Our favorite is the 8-night Eastern Mediterranean World Heritage Tour embarking on the 2,550-passenger MSC Musica from either Venice or Bari, Italy, in late October and select dates in November, with rates starting at just $649. Ports of call include Greece (Rhodes, Katakolon, and Athens at Piraeus), Turkey (Izmir), and Croatia (Dubrovnik). Just hurry this deal expires on September 30. www.msccruisesusa.com
