Due to the extension of the travel restrictions within Italy (which also prevents access to cruise ports) until January 15, MSC Cruises announced the cancellation of two voyages (scheduled for MSC Grandiosa ship) departing from Genoa-Milan, Italy on January 10 and 17.
The first MSC Grandiosa voyage following the suspension of operation in connection with the implementation of the same measures during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays will now depart from Genoa on January 24.
MSC’s current flagship will resume her planned weekly sailings leaving every Sunday out of Genoa and visiting the Italian ports Civitavecchia-Rome, Palermo Sicily, Naples, plus Valletta Malta. Embarkation is available in each of the Italian ports. Grandiosa is expected to offer these itineraries until March 21, after which the vessel will remain in the Western Mediterranean to offer roundtrips during summer with a new itinerary.
From February 14, MSC Magnifica will also resume operation departing out of Genoa for 11-night voyages designed to enable travellers to discover the West and Eastern Mediterranean in Greece, Malta and Italy.
MSC is currently in the process of contacting all passengers and travel agents affected by the cancelled Grandiosa cruises.
