MSC Cruises has cancelled a Grand Voyage on MSC Euribia because of Red Sea safety concerns.

The ship had been due to depart on 19 October from Kiel, Germany on one of its immersive Grand Voyages, sailing through Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, before transiting the Suez Canal to Dubai.

A spokesperson said: “Due to attacks against cargo ships in the Red Sea, we have cancelled MSC Euribia’s 28-night Grand Voyage later this year from Kiel in Germany to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates to ensure the safety of our passengers and crew as there is no viable alternative route for this particular sailing.

“Guests affected by this regrettable but understandable cancellation have been offered a range of alternative options including other Grand Voyages of similar length, other sailings in our global network or full refunds.”

MSC has asked affected guests to decide on their alternative options by Friday 26 April.

MSC Euribia is still scheduled to carry out itineraries from Dubai and Doha from 16 November and it’s understood it will sail round Africa to get there.

MSC Euribia is MSC’s newest ship, which launched in June last year.
