Have you ever looked at the glossy pages of travel magazines, and wondered what it would be like to snap beautiful pictures of distant places and cultures? Well, you have the ability to do the same thing if you keep in mind these following travel photography tips.

Location, Location, Location

Travel photographers often travel long distances to photograph everything from landscapes to tourist attractions, from outdoor adventures to wildlife. One thing that they are susceptible to is travel fatigue, travel delays, long flights and layovers. The best way to beat those hazards of the trade is to explore your desire to be a travel photographer via a cruise.

Cruisers can select an itinerary with multiple incredible destinations on one itinerary allowing for a vast array of photo opportunities. In fact, MSC Cruises offers over 150 exotic destinations on their cruise itinerary that you'll love to capture with your lens. Imagine the luxury of choosing from the warm and balmy islands of the Caribbean & Antilles to the beautiful tropical countries of South America.  Ancient and scenic cities of Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the modernization and rich culture of South Africa and Dubai are just one cruise away. And, best of all, you eliminate travel fatigue because you can rest aboard ultramodern ships in between alluring ports of call and unpack just one time.

Extraordinary Moments

Travel photographers have a knack for capturing extraordinary moments that capture our imaginations. There are more than 2,000 exquisite excursions for worldwide destinations that cover 73 countries.

Perhaps visiting the Basilica of Notre Dame has been a lifelong goal. The grandeur and the beauty of the cathedral will make excellent photos, along with the beautiful shots that will be captured from Marseilles' city center. Experiences like these and so many more are readily available for guests who choose to cruise the Mediterranean aboard the MSC Meraviglia from Barcelona, Spain beginning June 2017. Now, imagine special experiences like these in the Caribbean, the United Arab Emirates or Africa—not to mention the extraordinary experiences from taking MSC Grand Voyages that link continents to continents. In one amazing Grand Voyage, guests can visit and photograph Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia, just to name a few.


MSC Cruises guests, for example, have the advantage of bringing their favorite cameras or cell phones on board, but if they run short on supplies, the ship's shopping centers are an excellent resource to restock. Cameras, batteries and accessories are available on most MSC ships for purchase.

To test your new travel photography skills on an MSC cruise vacation, contact your travel agent, visit the MSC Cruises website or call 1-(844) 220-9878.
