Itineraries

MSC Orchestra itinerary program is based on Eastern Caribbean cruises from Pointe-a-Pitre and Fort-de-France. During summer, Orchestra operates on 10-day Western Mediterranean and 7-day Eastern Mediterranean/Aegean Sea voyages to ports in Turkey and the Greek Isles.

Orchestra also offers Transatlantic repositioning crossings between the Caribbean and Europe.

In October 2023, MSC canceled Orchestra's winter 2023-2024 Red Sea season (November-April) due to the uncertainty in the Middle East (Israel-Palestine war). The canceled program was based on 7-day roundtrips from Saudi Arabia (Jeddah) and Egypt (Safaga). In November, the canceled program was replaced with 7-day Mediterranean itineraries (December 16th thru April 19th) visiting Valencia, Cagliari Sardinia, Civitavecchia-Rome, Livorno,, Marseille, and Palma de Mallorca.
