Second full ex-UK cruise season for MSC Magnifica announced

Article-Second full ex-UK cruise season for MSC Magnifica announced

An all inclusive drinks package will be included in the ticket price
Ex-UK cruises onboard MSC Magnifica will sail from Southampton in summer 2021, travelling to destinations that include Malaga and Monaco as part of a 14-night Mediterranean cruise.

It marks Magnifica’s second full ex-UK cruise season; the first was back in 2018. 

Premium drinks package

Between April and November, 2021 an all inclusive premium drinks package will be available on board, and on more than 1,000 sailings to the Caribbean and the East and West Mediterranean from ports around the world.

It applies to new bookings made between September 8 and December 2, 2020 with prices from £319pp for a two night cruise leaving from Southampton or £644pp for a seven night cruise on Grandiosa.  

‘We are seeing a definite appetite for booking holidays for 2021, however the feedback from the market has been that it has to be the right product at the right price’, says Antonio Paradiso, md, MSC Cruises UK & Ireland. ‘The all inclusive price includes service charge and a premium drinks package... which is why we think this... is the right promotion to stimulate bookings.’


Grandiosa was the first of MSC’s ships to return to service in the Mediterannean following the company's pause in operations and is now on its fifth cruise.
