MSC Cruises hosted a special event onboard MSC Bellissima ship in Port Yokohama (Japan) to mark the start of the company's summer 2023 season and to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of MSC's presence in Japan.

Sales opened on May 1st for MSC's first-ever Japanese winter season. With sailings now year-round from the country, MSC offers the largest capacity in the region.

Bellissima's new winter program starts in November 2023 with an 11-, 9-, and 6-night voyage roundtrip from Yokohama. From January through to March 2024, the liner is homeported in Naha/Okinawa offering international tourists the chance to experience Japan’s landscapes and beaches, rich cultural heritage and traditions, as well as modern attractions with a wealth of destinations without having to repack.

MSC's winter 2023-2024 season will see Bellissima operating within Japan and to Keelung/Taipei (Taiwan), offering voyages of 4 to 5 nights in length, with varying itineraries visiting destinations including Japan's Okinawa, Ishigakijima Island, Miyakojima Island, and Taiwan's Keelung.
