MSC Cruises, the world’s largest privately-owned cruise line, have unveiled brand-new itineraries for Summer 2021 sailing from Southampton. The 24 sailings from May to October will see the introduction of cruises ranging from 2 to 14 nights with brand new varied itineraries. These will include the Canary Islands & Madeira, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Baltic Capitals, with most of the 24 sailings beginning on a Saturday ensuring guests can make the most of their holiday experience.
The newly refurbished MSC Magnifica will undergo a transformation adding 23 meters to the ship that will deliver an additional 7,000 m2 of added space. This refurbishment will result in a new water park, a redesigned kids area, plus additional features such as two new restaurants and a new shopping area.
MSC Magnifica will feature important onboard environmental advances to complement a wide range of existing leading-edge environmental technologies across the company’s entire fleet. These new features will help reduce Nitrogen Oxide emissions and will enable wastewater to be processed on board to the highest standards, surpassing that found it most cities. The ship will also be able to further reduce emissions by ‘plugging in’ to the local power while in port.
