MSC Cruises announced that the Arabian Gulf current season would be extended with the MSC Bellissima ship offering additional 7-night roundtrips visiting the UAE's ports Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sir Bani Yas, as well as Doha (Qatar) from April 2 through to June 25.
MSC Bellissima is expected to finish her scheduled Red Sea itineraries homeporting in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia, Mecca) on March 26 and then move to the Arabian Gulf taking over from the MSC Virtuosa ship from April 2.
Virtuosa has been sailing in the region since November 2021. On finishing the winter cruise season she will undertake a Grand Voyage back to Europe and homeport in Southampton (England UK) for the summer season.
