MSC Cruises returning to Barcelona

MSC Cruises will restart its sailing in Spain with the deployment of MSC Grandiosa to Barcelona from 26 June.

Valencia will then be added as an additional port of call from 30 July.

It follows MSC's recent announcements that its ships are restarting operations in Germany, France and the Baltics in addition to its current and other summer 2021 confirmed itineraries in the West and East Mediterranean as well as the UK.

Gianni Onorato, CEO, MSC Cruises, said: "When we first announced our confirmed programmes for summer 2021, we indicated that we would enrich them with any new ports and destinations as they became available. This is the case today with Spain and Barcelona."

The resumption of service meets local regulations in Spain and will be supported by MSC Cruises' Health & Safety protocols.

 MSC Grandiosa offers seven-night cruises in the Western Mediterranean calling at Genoa, Civitavecchia/Rome, Naples, Palermo, Valetta in Malta and now Barcelona in Spain on Saturdays with embarkation in the Italian ports as well as Barcelona.

From 30 July, MSC Grandiosa will add Valencia to the itinerary with embarkation on Fridays and from 31 July the ship will then offer seven-night itineraries calling at Barcelona, Genoa, La Spezia for Florence, Pisa, Civitavecchia/Rome and Valencia.

MSC Seaside is also sailing in the Mediterranean and since 20 May the newly-launched MSC Virtuosa has been operating cruises around the British Isles for UK residents.
