MSC CRUISES RESUMES SAILINGS FROM GERMANY FROM THE PORT OF KIEL WITH MSC SEAVIEW
- MSC Seaview’s first departure from Kiel marks the start of MSC Cruises’ Northern Europe summer sailings from Germany
- Company’s seventh ship now back at sea with a further three returning to operations in the coming months
- Sister ship MSC Seaside adds Marseille, France to enrich her West Mediterranean itinerary
Geneva, Switzerland (July 5, 2021) — MSC Cruises commenced the Northern Europe summer season this weekend when MSC Seaview departed from the German port of Kiel for the first of her 7-night cruises in the Baltic Sea.
MSC Seaview is the seventh MSC Cruises’ ship to resume sailings with guests on board with a further three preparing to start future voyages, which will see half of the Company’s fleet back at sea by the end of summer.
MSC Seaview will homeport in Kiel until the beginning of October and will welcome German and international guests for an attractive itinerary to Visby — on one of Sweden’s largest islands, Gotland — Nynäshamn, near the Swedish capital city of Stockholm, and Tallinn, Estonia before returning to her North German base. MSC Cruises’ industry-pioneering protected shore excursions are available at all ports of call.
Another German port will be added to MSC Seaview’s itinerary to further enrich the cruise. The ship will call at Warnemunde from July 23, allowing guests to embark and disembark from an additional port as well as offering an additional option for shore excursions. At the mouth of the river Warnow, on the Baltic Sea, the former fishing village and popular seaside resort of Warnemunde surprises with its charm and wide, white beach. Guests can also visit Rostock and Berlin, the vibrant German capital city.
The weekend also saw Marseille added to the West Mediterranean itinerary of MSC Seaview’s sister ship MSC Seaside. Marseille is the first French port to reopen for the cruise line and welcome international guests for weekly calls.
Five MSC Cruises’ ships are currently sailing in the Mediterranean – MSC Grandiosa MSC Seaside, MSC Orchestra, MSC Splendida and MSC Magnifica. A sixth ship MSC Virtuosa has operated cruises around the UK for British guests only since May 20.
Starting August 2, MSC Meraviglia will kick off MSC Cruises’ resumption of sailings from U.S. ports with Caribbean cruises from Miami. MSC Meraviglia will be joined by MSC Divina — as MSC Cruises’ second ship to resume cruises from the U.S. — starting September 18, with sailings from Orlando (Port Canaveral).
MSC Seashore will come into service in August with voyages in the West Mediterranean before the Company’s newest flagship moves to her new homeport in Miami this November to sail the Caribbean.
