Combining two fascinating cruises in one European holiday is MSC Cruises' 22-night Cossacks and Classics fly, stay and cruise package, priced from $4678 per person, twin share from Australia.

Leaving on May 7, 2013, the package combines an 11-night round cruise from Genoa (Italy) on board MSC Lirica with seven nights aboard sister ship MSC Sinfonia as well as a night's hotel stay in Genoa and return Emirates airfares from Australia to Milan.

The MSC Lirica cruise will call on Civitavecchia (Rome), Istanbul, Piraeus (Athens) and Sorrento and span as far north as the Ukraine's Odessa and Yalta.

The following return seven-night cruise, also from Genoa, will be aboard MSC Sinfonia and call on St Tropez, Mallorca, Mahon (Spain), Olbia and Salerno (both in Italy).

Return economy air fare and flight taxes from Australia are included in the price along with listed transfers, one night's stay in Genoa and port and service charges.

As with all MSC Cruises, children under 18 years cruise free (pay only port charges) when sharing a cabin with their parents.

In March, 2013, MSC Cruises will also see the introduction of a new cruise ship to the cruise line's Fantasia class with its sophisticated all-suite MSC Yacht Club - MSC Preziosa.

Its launch in Genoa will come close in the wake of this year's highly-charged Marseille unveiling of sister ship, MSC Divina, named by the 13-strong cruise line's godmother, screen legend Sophia Loren.
