In early-December 2018, MSC Cruises unveiled an epic Around The World voyage on MSC Poesia. Destinations included the Caribbean, South America, USA, Australia, New Zealand, East Asia (Japan, China) and Europe. The 119-day itinerary was planned to visit 53 ports/destinations in 33 different countries.

  • "MSC World Cruise 2021" had to depart on January 5, 2021, roundtrip from Genoa and Civitavecchia-Rome.
  • The first leg included Marseille, Barcelona, westbound Transatlantic crossing to the Caribbean, Panama Canal transition, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Mexico, San Francisco CA.
  • The second leg (from San Francisco) visited Maui and Hawaii, Samoa, Fiji, Auckland NZ, Sydney NSW, Cairns QLD, Great Barrier Reef, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Japan (during the cherry blossom season).
  • After Kyoto, Tokyo, and Shanghai, the third leg visited Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Dubai, Oman, Jordan, followed Suez Canal transition back to Europe (Mediterranean).

The cheapest cruise fares started from GBP 11,600 per person (twin-share inside cabin rates). The price included 15 shore excursions plus a drink package with alcohol included at all mealtimes.

However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis (international travel restrictions, country lockdowns, port closures), MSC Poesia's World Voyage 2021 was eventually cancelled.
