MSC Cruises' MSC Magnifica sets sail

Yesterday, MSC Magnifica became the second MSC Cruises ship to set sail following a pause in operations earlier this year. 

The ship departed Genoa on a 10-night voyage to the West and East Mediterranean with planned calls at the ports of Livorno for visits to Florence and Pisa, Messina in Sicily, Piraeus for Athens, Katakolon for Olympia, Valletta in Malta,  and Civitavecchia for Rome, before returning to Genoa.

MSC Magnifica will follow MSC Grandiosa, which is currently on her 9th voyage, as the second ship to implement MSC Cruises’ comprehensive health and safety protocol, which has been endorsed by external medical experts and formally approved by the relevant national and regional authorities. The comprehensive safety-first measures designed to protect the well-being of guests, crew and communities visited were first implemented in August when MSC Grandiosa became the world’s first major cruise vessel to return to service and the Company’s flagship has now completed nine, seven-night voyages and positively demonstrated the protocol’s effectiveness. The measures include protected “social bubble” ashore visits for guests to allow them to also enjoy destinations at each port of call.

Whilst due to the current FCDO British guests are unable to sail with MSC Cruises UK MD Antonio Paradiso has reassured guests that MSC Cruises are ready to welcome back British guests stating ‘MSC Cruises are ready to welcome British & Irish residents when the FCDO guidance changes. We are working closely with CLIA and the relevant authorities to enable British and Irish guests to be welcome back on board our ships when the time is right.’
