Philipsburg, St Maarten

The unique island of St Maarten is the smallest inhabited destination in the world shared by two nations – France in the north and the Netherlands in the south. Known as the true melting pot of the Caribbean, St. Maarten’s is home to individuals hailing from 47 different nationalities. The island features two capitals: Philipsburg on the Dutch side and Marigot in the French territory. Philipsburg is rich in history and welcoming in nature, with pastel-coloured West Indian houses and enticing shopping experiences along Front Street. Marigot boasts picturesque gingerbread-like houses, sidewalk bistros, and a delightful waterfront market. Both are worth exploring during your time in port, but no visit to St. Maarten is complete without a trip to the famous Maho Beach, aptly nicknamed Airplane Beach because you will witness planes passing by at a hair’s breadth while landing and taking off from Princess Juliana Airport’s short runway. It’s guaranteed to leave you awe-struck.

While in port, a visit to the Garrison Historic Area is an absolute must.

Lisbon (Cascais), Portugal

As the second oldest European capital after Athens, Lisbon captivates with its rich history, timeless beauty, and unmistakably Portuguese charm. Perched on a series of hills overlooking the Tejo estuary, Lisbon’s historic center is remarkably compact, allowing you to explore its wonders in just a day during your MSC cruise stop. At the heart of the city lies the Alfama, a maze of narrow streets leading up to the imposing Moorish Castelo de São Jorge. On the opposite hill, you’ll find the Bairro Alto, renowned for its bars, restaurants, and nightlife. The valley between these two hills forms the Baixa, or lower town, home to impressive buildings, intriguing shops, and inviting cafes. During your port day, seize the opportunity to traverse a narrow walkway leading to the awe-inspiring Torre de Belém (Belem Tower), a landmark that epitomises the spirit of Lisbon and Portugal. Originally built as a ceremonial gateway and fortress during Portugal’s global empire, the tower has witnessed its fair share of history. From falling to Spanish forces in the 16th century to French occupation during the Peninsula War, the Belem Tower has seen it all. Today, as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it reveals its secrets to visitors, such as the haunting pits where prisoners were once held and the magnificent 16th-century rhinoceros gargoyle.
