These likely will now extend beyond the current holiday period.
As part of these measures, currently through Jan. 6, passenger ships are only able to make technical calls at Greek ports.
Due to the uncertainty as to whether these ports will fully reopen on Jan. 7 or if these measures will be further extended as it is very likely to be the case, MSC Cruises is postponing Magnifica's resumption, which had been planned for Jan. 15.
Travelers can sail sooner on Grandiosa instead
Impacted travelers are invited to transfer their booking to MSC Grandiosa for as early as Jan. 10, when the ship is due to restart its Western Mediterranean itinerary visiting ports in Italy and Malta.
