A fabulous photo of Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, Portugal taken by a MSC Cruises crew member

This fabulous picture of the Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, Portugal has been taken by MSC Cruises crew member while on a Trans-Atlantic cruise. The ships of MSC Cruises are calling often in Lisbon and there is plenty to see in this great European capital. The Belem area (where the monastery is located is very close to the cruise ship terminal and is a place not to be missed. If there is sufficient time a visit to the medieval city of Sintra is highly recommended, but the visit has to be planned and timed carefully in order not to miss the ship. The safest and cheapest (it's free, doesn't go cheaper than that) way to visit Sintra while the ship is docked in Lisbon is as an escort for a passenger tour (talk to the Shore Excursions Staff aboard the ship in advance). In any case calling to the port of Lisbon just once will not be enough to see this beautiful city, hopefully your ship has Lisbon on a regular cruise itinerary.

MSC Cruises is the fourth largest cruise operator in the world, after Carnival Corporation, Royal Caribbean Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line. The biggest single cruise line in Europe is Costa Cruises, but the company is part of Carnival Corporation & plc. Currently MSC Cruises are operating 12 ships plus one more under construction. The company is offering extensive Mediterranean itineraries and Lisbon is one of the cities that crew members can explore.
