MSC Cruises' summer 2024 itinerary announcement is the perfect Christmas gift

London, UK – 21 December 2022: MSC Cruises UK and Ireland announced its Summer 2024 itinerary details today, making an MSC Cruises the perfect last-minute Christmas gift for your family, friends, or perhaps even for yourself.

The Summer season running from April 2024 through to October 2024 offers a huge choice of itineraries to suit any type of traveller with up to 22 ships to choose from. Itineraries on board MSC Virtuosa departing from Southampton offer UK customers the chance to visit idyllic summer destinations in 2024 including Reykjavík, Flaam and Rotterdam. Cruises start from four-night getaways costing £259, seven-night cruises starting at £649 and a 14-night itinerary departing on 7 September 2024 and stopping at locations perfect for soaking up the sun including Casablanca, the Canary Islands and Lisbon, prices starting at £1,449.

MSC Cruises offers an unforgettable onboard experience with an incredible choice of international dining options, world-class entertainment, award-winning facilities and activities for families and children of all ages, luxurious spas and fitness centres as well as comfortable, stylish accommodation to meet every need.

Antonio Paradiso, UK & Ireland MD, MSC Cruises commented, “We are committed to offering the best possible experience for our customers from the UK and Ireland and that is why our latest ship, MSC Virtuosa, will be based in the UK again during Summer 2024. We have noticed a huge demand for stress-free, no-fly cruises from Southampton since our first full ex-UK season back in 2018. Next year, we will welcome our innovative and brand-new ship in the fleet, MSC Euribia, which will sail from the UK during Winter 2023/2024. This will be MSC Cruises’ second LNG-powered ship and will help us to build on the success of ex-UK sailings.

“Booking a cruise early is one of the best ways to take advantage of new itineraries when they are released. There are two compelling reasons why you should book in advance. First, there are certain cabin categories that are usually in high demand when new cruises are released, so it is important that customers book early to avoid disappointment. And secondly, fares are determined by supply and demand, therefore new itineraries tend to have the best and most affordable prices.

“As we are on track to have a record-breaking year in 2023, our travel agents will play a crucial role in pushing these 2024 itineraries to our UK and Ireland customers, ensuring that we achieve these targets and beyond.”
