Costa Cruises in association with dnata in Dubai are offering several cruise packages which can get you to experience life at sea with plenty of "land ho" opportunities.

You spend the day in the city famous for inventing pizza and then go back to your floating castle. A few more days at sea and a few more port calls, your cruiseliner reaches the French Riviera city of Marseille. This is your last port of call before you head back to Barcelona and your flight home.
