From one family to another, we will be ready to welcome you back on board for the summer cruise season as we set sail once again in the beautiful Mediterranean – a region so integral to our heritage, roots and sea-faring experience.
Considering the challenging the times we have all faced, you can be assured that we will always put your health and safety first in everything we do, which is why we’ve introduced new measures to ensure your wellbeing on board. These new procedures will ensure that you can continue to share our love for cruising and the sea with true peace of mind, allowing you to appreciate the joy that it brings to each day.
We are proud to therefore confirm that two of MSC Cruises’ most modern and cutting-edge ships – MSC Grandiosa and MSC Magnifica - will be setting sail in the Mediterranean on 16th and 22nd August, 2020 respectively. Both ships’ itineraries have been carefully curated, not only in relation to the accessibility of the chosen ports (reducing the need for public transport and flights), but also to ensure you can enjoy the very best the Mediterranean has to offer.
To welcome you back the MSC Cruises way, we are providing a Covid Protection Plan*
(CPP) for only €18 per passenger per cruise to enjoy your cruise in complete serenity and a selection of 3 excursions** at a convenient rate to discover the most sought-after destinations.
Join us on MSC Grandiosa– the most recent addition to our fleet – for an unforgettable seven-night cruise in the Western Mediterranean, calling at the Italian ports of Genoa, Civitavecchia/Rome, Naples, Palermo and Malta (La Valletta). An opportunity to discover and experience authentic Italy and Malta in the company of close friends and family, on board a ship that offers true quality, relaxation and escape.
Set sail with MSC Magnifica on a seven-night cruise through the Eastern Mediterranean, calling in Italy at Bari, Trieste and in Greece at Corfù, Katakolon (Olympia), Piraeus (Athens). A wonderful occasion to appreciate the culture of two iconic Italian cities and their famous ports, followed by the wonder and warmth of the fabled Greek must-see-places.
Our pleasure at returning to sea – with you as our guests - is heightened by our itineraries being focused on the Mediterranean; our true home.
