   March 18, 2022 ,   Cruise Industry

MSC Cruises’ ship MSC Grandiosa will be fully dedicated to the Norwegian Fjords for the summer 2022 season.

The MSC liner is now offering 7-night itineraries in one of Northern Europe's most stunning regions. Together with Grandiosa, MSC deploys in the region also MSC Poesia and MSC Preziosa.

MSC Grandiosa will offer 7-night itineraries from homeport Kiel (Germany), visiting Copenhagen (Denmark). The boat then heads north to Norway, visiting Hellesylt, then crusing through Sunnylvsfjord and Aurlandsfjord on the way to Alesund and Flam.

MSC had previously confirmed that it would suspend visits to Sankt-Petersburg (Russia) and as such, Grandiosa will now be dedicated to the Fjords region while Poesia and Preziosa will still call in the Baltics (with St Petersburg replaced with other destinations like Stockholm (Sweden), Visby (Sweden), and Tallinn (Estonia).
