MSC Cruises announced it will restart its cruise operations in Spain with the deployment of the MSC Grandiosa ship to Barcelona from June 26 for a Saturday embarkation.
Valencia Spain will then be added as an additional call port as of July 30.
This follows the recent announcements by the cruise line that its vessels are restarting operations in Germany, France, and the Baltics in addition to the current and other confirmed Summer 2021 itineraries in the West and East Mediterranean as well as the UK.
The resumption of service is in line with local regulations in Spain. It will be supported by the industry-leading Health & Safety protocol of MSC Cruises, which has protected tens of thousands of passengers, as well as crew and local communities since the company first introduced it in August last year on Grandiosa.
MSC Grandiosa offers 7-night voyages in the Western Mediterranean visiting Genoa, Civitavecchia/Rome, Palermo, Naples, Valletta Malta, and now Barcelona, Spain on Saturdays with embarkation in the ports in Italy as well as Barcelona.
From July 30, MSC Grandiosa is adding Valencia to the itinerary. Embarkation is offered on Fridays. From July 31, the ship will offer 7-night itineraries visiting Barcelona, Genoa, La Spezia (Florence/Pisa), Civitavecchia and Valencia.
MSC Seaside is also operating in the Mediterranean.
Since May 20, the newly-launched MSC Virtuosa is sailing around the British Isles for UK residents.
MSC Seaview will restart in the Baltics from Germany on July 3.
