MSC Seaside will join MSC Grandiosa in offering cruises in the Mediterranean and will follow the cruise line’s industry-leading health and safety protocol which has allowed the cruise line to sail successfully since August 2020.
MSC Seaside will be performing a brand-new itinerary featuring 7-night cruises calling Genoa, Valetta 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 Valetta in Malta.
MSC Grandiosa has safely carried more than 40,000 passengers since the cruise ship resumed service.
MSC Seaside and MSC Grandiosa itineraries are currently available to residents from Schengen countries and Bulgaria, Croatia, and Romania.
