MSC Cruises was the first major cruise line to resume cruises when one of their cruise ships sailed on a week long cruise last month.
MSC Grandiosa is about to complete her fifth successful cruise since restarting. The cruise ship has implemented a comprehensive health and safety protocol to keep crew and guests safe.
The new measures include universal testing for all guests before embarkation, rigorous health screening of crew before they commence their contract as well as ongoing health monitoring on board, protected ashore visits following the same high standards ashore as on board as well other measures such as enhanced sanitation of the ship, social distancing and use of face masks in public areas, best practices of personal hygiene, to name a few.
The cruise line’s next ship to restart will be MSC Magnifica on October 19, with an enriched and longer itinerary in both the West and East Mediterranean.
