Thanks to the Italian government’s extension of journey limitations for the vacation time, MSC Cruises has cancelled MSC Grandiosa‘s scheduled voyage from Genoa, Italy on January 10. As a precaution, the line also has cancelled that ship’s January 17 sailing. 

The initially “restart” cruise of MSC Grandiosa will depart from Genoa on January 24. Weekly cruises will then depart every Sunday from that port with phone calls at the Italian ports of Civitavecchia (Rome), Naples and Palermo, as well as Valletta, Malta, with embarkation readily available in every single port in Italy. 

MSC Grandiosa will provide these itineraries until March 21, right after which the ship will continue being in the western Mediterranean and offer a new itinerary.

In addition, starting off February 14, MSC Magnifica will also resume her operation departing from Genoa for 11-evening cruises to the western and eastern Mediterranean, visiting Italy, Greece and Malta.

The line’s overall health and safety protocols, which have been in area since MSC Cruises began restarting European cruises in August, have been just lately strengthened, dependent on the evolution of COVID-19 in Europe.

Additional well being/basic safety steps contain the subsequent:

  • Extra onboard antigen testing for COVID-19 of all friends mid-way by means of their cruise that is in addition to the existing pre-boarding universal screening for all visitors
  • Crew screening has been increased from 2 times regular to weekly which is in addition to all pre-boarding screening for all crew and other ongoing well being checking steps
  • Elevated frequency of onboard sanitation, notably in public parts and at higher touch factors
  • Tightening of the definition of “shut speak to” for tracing reasons, lowering the time that people today are in speak to from 15 minutes to 10 minutes.
