MSC Cruises has announced a new winter itinerary for MSC Orchestra. From 16 December 2023 to 19 April 2024, the ship will call in Valencia, Spain; Cagliari, Sardinia; Civitavecchia for Rome; Livorno for Pisa and Florence, Italy; Marseille, France; and Palma in Mallorca before returning to Valencia.
This new programme was developed to replace the Red Sea itineraries that had been cancelled due to the close proximity of some of the ports of call to Israel and restrictions in some neighbouring countries.
The line reiterated that the safety of its passengers and crew is always its top priority. During this evolving situation, it would continue to monitor the circumstances and, if required, change ship itineraries.
MSC Orchestra’s international dining options include two major restaurants, a Shanghai Oriental speciality restaurant and buffet, and ten pubs and lounges. The 1,200-seat Covent Garden theatre has full-scale, original theatre shows, and kids will appreciate the wide variety of activities and games.
Those looking forward to relaxing may visit the MSC Aurea Spa for a relaxing massage or spend an hour in the thermal area, which includes a sauna, steam room, and whirlpool. Alternatively, the R32 disco is the place to be if you want to dance the night away.
Outside, the ship has three pools, minigolf, shuffleboard, and a multi-use sports centre where guests may play basketball, tennis, or volleyball.
