MSC Magnifica likely to resume operations next month

Published on : Tuesday, September 15, 2020

MSC Cruises has delayed the return of MSC Magnifica to the seas and the cruise is now expected to carry forward its first departure on October 29. Previously, the company was hoping to welcome passengers once again starting September 26.


MSC Magnifica had initially been expected to re-launch alongside MSC Grandiosa in mid-August. However, the new travel restrictions on guests arriving in Italy prompted the change in plans. The vessel has decided to offer a series of seven cruises, including an eight-night Christmas cruise departing on December 18 from Genoa in Italy. 


MSC Magnifica’s new programme covers both the west and east Mediterranean. After homeporting in Genoa, the cruise will offer calls at Livorno for Florence and Pisa, Messina in Sicily, Valletta in Malta, Piraeus for Athens and Katakolon for Olympia in Greece and Civitavecchia for Rome.


The longer sailing is expected to appeal to guests flying from Schengen countries because of strong pan-European air links to both Rome and Genoa. Simultaneously, the company also extended MSC Grandiosa’s current sailings through to the end of the year, including a Christmas cruise to depart from Genoa December 20.
