‘The UK market is a priority for MSC Cruises and we have shown our commitment consistently over the last few years,’ said Antonio Paradiso, md, MSC Cruises UK & Ireland. ‘Firstly, with our first ever full EX-UK season in 2018, then with the naming of MSC Bellissima in Southampton in 2019, followed by a second much anticipated full EX-UK season coming up this 2021 Summer season.’
Two 14-night no-fly Western Mediterranean cruises are scheduled for July and August, starting with two sea days. Seven different ports in nine days, including an overnight stay in Palma de Mallorca and a visit to Monte Carlo, form part of the itinerary.
A 12-night cruise departing in late May and two 14-night cruises departing in July and September comprise a combination of overnight stays in Stockholm and St Petersburg, and visits to Skagen and Oslo.
MSC Magnifica will offer four different Norwegian Fjord itineraries, calling at the ports of Flamm and Stavanger, famous for their medieval history, as well as Bergen, where passengers can visit the UNESCO World Heritage Hanseatic quarter and Nordfjordeid, home of Myklebustskipet - Norway's largest Viking ship.
