MSC Cruises is finally resuming operations in Spain and has added Barcelona and Valencia as embarkation ports. From June 26, MSC Grandiosa will set sail every Saturday from Barcelona, and from July 30, passengers will also be able to embark in Valencia.
MSC Grandiosa now offers seven-night cruises in the Mediterranean, with ports of call in Genoa, Civitavecchia (Rome), Naples, Palermo, and Valetta, Malta.
According to Chief Executive Gianni Onorato, “When we first announced our confirmed programs for summer 2021, we indicated that we would enrich them with any new ports and destinations as they become available.
“This is the case today with Spain and Barcelona,” added Onorato, “thus allowing our guests to visit this magnificent destination that has been unavailable since March of last year thanks to the secure bubble ashore excursions we provide under our health and safety operating protocol.”
Another MSC vessel operating in the Mediterranean is MSC Seaside, while MSC Virtuosa is currently sailing around the British Isles, and MSC Seaview is scheduled to restart sailings from Germany to the Baltics from July 3.
