MSC Highlights European Itineraries

In an effort to broaden its presence in the U.S. cruise market, MSC Cruises is highlighting its European itineraries aimed at North American travelers.

“As MSC Cruises continues to expand its brand in the U.S., and given the huge success of MSC Divina in the Mediterranean this summer, we’ve seen strong interest from North Americans in sailing MSC Cruises’ product in Europe,” said Ken Muskat, executive vice president of sales, public relations and guest services. “To meet this growing demand, MSC has created highly appealing itineraries on some of the newest ships in its fleet for 2016 and 2017 with North Americans in mind.”

From last-minute booking options and summer 2016 sailings to bookings onboard the MSC Meraviglia (set to debut in 2017), there are a wide variety of cruises available. Here some of the highlights of MSC’s itineraries in Europe:

Europe 2016 – Now Open for Sale

This week MSC Cruises opened its Europe 2016 Summer season itineraries featuring sailings in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe. Particularly attractive for North Americans are itineraries on MSC Fantasia and MSC Preziosa – which both feature seven ports in seven days to popular destinations in the Mediterranean such as Barcelona, Cannes, and Rome.  

Europe 2017 – MSC Meraviglia Now Open for Sale

MSC Meraviglia, the first of MSC’s next generation cruise ships, opened for sale this week to MSC Club members and will open for sale to the rest of the public on July 5. MSC Meraviglia will be the largest and most innovative cruise ship ever built by a European-based cruise line and will be able to call at any cruise port in the world.
