Cruise Passenger and MSC Cruises are offering 40 lucky readers the chance to party aboard the magnificent MSC Orchestra as she circumnavigates Australia next month.
The journey will be the first time an MSC cruise ship has come to our shores – and the European Italian line is determined to celebrate.
Right now, MSC Orchestra is on a grand voyage from Dubai via India and Southeast Asia before arriving in Cairns on March 13 and Brisbane on March 15. She is carrying 3,000 passengers – one third of them Australians.
And there will be excitement at virtually every stop.
It will be a Sunday celebration in Brisbane, but something special when she cruises into Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay on St Patrick’s Day – there will be a big poolside cocktail party for VIP guests – and you could be one of them.
Then there will be fireworks to send Orchestra on her journey to Melbourne and Adelaide.
She is finally ending her 33-day voyage at Fremantle on March 26.
Readers in each city – Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide – can win one of 10 party tickets.
Just tell us, in 25 words or less, why you would like to step aboard the MSC Orchestra for a cruise.
But be quick – winners will be drawn at close of business on March  6th  and will be notified with a link to complete photo ID details that will be sent to MSC.
Don’ forget to tell us which party you want to attend, and send us your name, date of birth.  You’ll need to send us and on the day take your driver’s licence or similar photo identity document for security reason.

Good luck!
