MSC Cruises South Africa season 2020 21

MSC Cruises announces two ships to South Africa for 2020/2021

MSC Cruises is bringing two ships to South Africa’s shores in the 2020/2021 cruise season. 

While MSC Opera belongs to Lirica Class, MSC Musica is of Musica Class.

Ross Volk, managing director of the cruise line's South Africa region, said: “The deployment for the first time of two classes of MSC Cruises ship to South Africa for the local 2020/2021 cruise season will allow us to meet more fully the growth in demand we have experienced over the past few years. As such, it is also a further sign of MSC Cruises’ long-standing commitment to this key market and its tourism.”

From December 2020, MSC Opera will homeport in Cape Town, joining MSC Musica – which will be based in Durban as of November.

Both the ships, which were completely refurbished in 2014 as part of the company's Renaissance Programme, will together offer more than 60 cruises next season. The two ships will serve alternate routes, providing South African and international cruisers with a wider choice of cruise options.

Highlights of these itineraries include: Pomene Bay in Mozambique, a marine safari experience, the MSC Pomene Safari Beach Club, exclusively for MSC Cruises guests; and, Portuguese Island, a small, uninhabited island set between the African coast and the Indian Ocean, Maputo, the capital of Mozambique and Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Ahead of the season, both ships will offer Grand Voyage itineraries to southern Africa – with MSC Musica already available to book at: www.msccruises.co.uk/cruises/destinations/south-africa

Both the ships – MSC Musica and MSC Opera will leave Venice, departing on October 25, 2020, and November 8, 2020, on their way to Cape Town and Durban, respectively.

Highlights of these MSC Grand Voyage cruises include the famous Suez Canal transit, the city of Aqaba in Jordan, Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, and La Possession, of the neighbouring island of Réunion, before arriving on South African shores on December 5 in Cape Town and November 20 in Durban.

Guests looking to explore South Africa in the 2019/2020 season can book onto MSC Orchestra. It will make her maiden voyage this November, offering three-, four-, five- and 11-night sailings out of Durban and around the South African coastline until April 2020.
