MSC Cruises has announced that their innovative MSC Seaside will return to the Mediterranean after years in the Caribbean. This will mark the second MSC Cruises vessel to return to operation in that region.
Joining the Company’s flagship, MSC Grandiosa, in the Mediterranean starting May 1, 2021, MSC Seaside will sail a brand-new itinerary featuring 7-night cruises calling Genoa, Valletta in Malta and Civitavecchia, with two first time ports of call – Siracusa in Sicily and Taranto in Puglia.
MSC Seaside will implement for the protection of its guests and crew MSC Cruises’ industry-leading health and safety protocol that has been tried and tested since August 2020. Measures will include universal testing at embarkation as well as mid-cruise, weekly testing of crew, social distancing, the wearing of masks in public areas, only protected shore excursions as well as enhanced deep sanitation and ongoing cleaning procedures.
MSC Grandiosa’s current successful itinerary will be extended through to the end of May with the ship calling at the Italian ports of Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo as well as Valletta in Malta.
MSC Grandiosa has been welcoming guests for a vacation at sea from August of last year and has since safely and responsibly carried more than 40,000 guests.
MSC Seaside and MSC Grandiosa itineraries are currently available to residents from Schengen countries and Bulgaria, Croatia, and Romania.
