MSC Cruises today announced that it is working with the Greek Ministry of Tourism and other relevant authorities to reopen local tourism services in time to serve cruise ship passengers who will visit Greece for the next Week holidays.
The company has also announced that it is canceling its planned cruises on the MSC Magnifica until April 29. The ship was originally scheduled to sail again on February 14 with an itinerary through Greece. Therefore, MSC Magnifica will be replaced, for its voyages through the Eastern Mediterranean and Greece, during Easter and the beginning of the summer season, by other ships of the company operating in the area.
Passengers affected by canceled MSC Magnifica cruises until April 29 will be offered a reservation on another cruise – specifically on MSC Grandiosa, currently sailing the western Mediterranean or on another ship calling in Greece – or will receive a Future Cruise Voucher with which they can transfer the total amount paid for their canceled cruise to a future cruise of their choice – on any ship and on any itinerary – until the end of 2021, along with an onboard credit as compensation.
MSC Grandiosa is running weekly cruises departing every Sunday from Genoa (Italy) and with stops in Civitavecchia, Naples, Palermo / Cagliari and Valletta. Boarding is available in all Italian ports.
