MSC Cruises will base the MSC Grandiosa in Southampton next spring and summer with its 23-voyage programme now on sale.

The ship will arrive on 24 April 2023 and operate a series of cruises, including mini breaks to Rotterdam and Bruges and longer itineraries to the Mediterranean and Canary Islands.

The MSC Grandiosa will replace the MSC Virtuoso which is preparing for its 2022 summer season from Southampton.

MSC Cruises UK and Ireland Managing Director Antonio Paradiso said: “We have been delighted with the response to the MSC Virtuosa sailings for 2022 and look forward to bringing another of our largest and most loved ships to the port of Southampton.

“We have seen strong demand for the itineraries for this year with particular interest in the two 14 night sailings to the Mediterranean taking place in the school summer holidays and as a result have replicated many of these itineraries ready for the 2023 season.”

He added: “For the last two years planning anything has been difficult but with an optimistic outlook and following demand from customers it is great to be able to put these cruises on sale over a year in advance, and we urge guests and travel agents to take advantage of the great rates available during this early booking window.”

Meanwhile, the cruise line said its all-inclusive promotion offering a premium drinks package as part of the price will end in seven days.

The offer is available on all sailings departing until November in the Caribbean, Emirates, Red Sea and Mediterranean in addition to voyages from Southampton.
