MSC Cruises has opened up sales for its summer ex-UK programme on board new flagship, MSC Virtuosa.
The season begins on May 20 with a series of mini-cruises from Southampton, followed by longer seven-night sailing from June 12 with guests able to embark in Southampton, Liverpool and Greenock. The cruise will also call at Portland in Dorset and Belfast.
All sailings are available to UK residents only and guests of all ages can get on board, both vaccinated and unvaccinated at the present time.
Antonio Paradiso, managing director of MSC Cruises UK & Ireland said: “We have seen real pent-up demand in the UK as people have been waiting to see where they can travel this summer and whether it is safe for them to do so. As holidays have become even more precious and important, we want to ensure that guests feel that they are getting great value for money, without the hassle of organising anything additional once on board. This is why we have introduced an All-Inclusive offering, which is always incredibly popular but now more than ever it’s important for guests to know that everything is taken care of. The All-Inclusive price includes service charges and a premium drinks package. We understand the need from guests to have a product that is great value, easy to understand but also it is important that it is flexible, which is why we have flexible booking terms. All we want guests to do on their MSC Cruises holiday is to relax, unwind, and feel safe.”
Prices for the mini-cruises start from £499.
