Cruise Weekly - - Front Page -

MSC Cruises has an­nounced its new north­ern win­ter 2020-2021 pro­gram, of­fer­ing more than 90 dif­fer­ent itin­er­ar­ies across the Ara­bian Penin­sula, Asia, the Caribbean, the Mediter­ranean, South Africa and South Amer­ica.

Itin­er­ar­ies range in length from two to 24 nights, along with the third MSC world cruise de­part­ing in Jan, now sail­ing aboard MSC Mag­nifica in­stead of MSC Poe­sia, with Aus­tralian and New Zealand ports of call also re­moved from the voyage.

Other changes to the pro­gram in­clude MSC Gran­diosa re­plac­ing sis­ter ship MSC Vir­tu­osa in the Mediter­ranean, Poe­sia re­plac­ing MSC Splen­dida on South­ern Caribbean and West Indies trips, MSC Fan­ta­sia re­plac­ing MSC Seav­iew and MSC Lir­ica in the Mid­dle East, and MSC Sin­fo­nia re­plac­ing MSC Or­ches­tra out of Buenos Aires, which moves to South Africa to re­place MSC Mu­sica.

De­spite the de­lay of Vir­tu­osa,

both it and MSC’s other un­der­con­struc­tion ship, MSC Seashore,

will fea­ture in the sea­son.

Guests whose book­ing is af­fected by changes to the pro­gram will au­to­mat­i­cally be trans­ferred to an­other ship serv­ing the same or sim­i­lar itin­er­ary and date.

A range of com­pen­sa­tion op­tions are also avail­able to these guests, such as upgrades from both In­side and Ocean View state­rooms and up to US$100 ship­board credit per state­room for Suites or Yacht Club rooms.

MSC also con­firmed 125% fu­ture cruise credit for guests af­fected by cruises can­celled yes­ter­day as part of CLIA’s ex­tended sus­pen­sion of op­er­a­tions in North Amer­ica (CW
