The ship's UK summer programme starts with a series of three- and four-night mini cruises, followed by seven-night sailings from June 5. It will include calls to the Isle of Portland and Belfast, with Liverpool and Greenock serving as embarkation ports, in addition to Southampton - its homeport.
Horizon Cruise Terminal
MSC Cruises recently announced a long-term partnership with ABP Southampton. MSC Virtuosa will initially depart from its City Cruise Terminal, before moving to embark guests from the newly-named Horizon Cruise Terminal once it opens.
Third MSC Cruises vessel at sea
The flagship vessel will be the third MSC Cruises ship back at sea; MSC Seaside has been operating in the Mediterranean since May 1, with MSC Grandiosa also sailing the Med since last August.
