MSC Cruises has revealed further information in relation to their planned programme of no-fly cruises this summer.

Commencing 20 May, MSC Virtuosa – MSC’s newly delivered flagship, will be deployed to the UK for her inaugural season and replace MSC Magnifica to spend summer operating a range of no-fly cruises to some of the most popular ports in our guide, including Portland, Liverpool, Greenock and Belfast.

All cruising operations will be conducted in accordance with relevant government requirements and will see the implementation of MSC Cruises’ health and safety protocol. The sailings are available to UK residents only, both vaccinated and unvaccinated at the present time.

MSC Virtuosa will initially operate six mini-cruises that embark in Southampton will include a stop in Portland – followed by a series of seven-night sailings embarking in the ports of Liverpool and Greenock. The four-night mini-cruises will sail from Southampton and will provide short getaways for couples or friends in search of a break. The ship will call at the Isle of Portland on the beautiful Jurassic Coast of Dorset, where guests will be able to go ashore explore the area and even look for some fossils. The itinerary will also include two days at sea so that guests can enjoy the ship itself.  

From June 12th, guests can join seven-night sailings that will include stops in Portland and the city of Belfast and offer multiple ports of embarkation including Liverpool and Greenock.

The cruises go on sale Wednesday March 31, 2021 at 10am. To book visit or contact your agent
