MSC Cruises has announced that it is now taking bookings from members of its MSC Voyagers Club for sailings aboard the MSC Grandiosa. Bookings for all other guests will open on 19MAR.
The Meravigilia-Plus class ship will sail seven-night itineraries in the Western Mediterranean starting on 16NOV 2019. The itinerary will see the ship call at six ports – Genoa, Civitavecchia, Palermo, Valletta, Barcelona and Marseille.
“At launch, MSC Grandiosa will be the fifth brand-new MSC Cruises ship to have joined our fleet in only two and a half years,” said Gianni Onorato, Chief Executive Officer of MSC Cruises. “She represents the further evolution of the already highly-successful Meraviglia prototype, first introduced only nine months ago.”
The new ship will offer guests featuring including: two new shows from Cirque du Soleil; an expanded Mediterranean-style promenade featuring shops, specialty restaurants and a new bar and lounge; MSC for Me, MSC’s shipboard digital innovation program that enables guests to further customize their vacations; new family activities and entertainment; a choice of at least 12 dining venues; and MSC’s luxury offering, MSC Yacht Club.
During the exclusive two-week booking period on now, MSC Voyagers Club members will receive a special 5% early booking discount, in addition to their current MSC Voyagers Club 5% loyalty discount. All other guests will enjoy a 5% early booking discount until 04SEP.
