MSC Virtuosa will remain in the UK year-round, offering no-fly sailings from Southampton throughout winter 2022 and summer 2023.
Antonio Paradiso, Managing Director – UK and Ireland, MSC Cruises, said, “Since MSC Virtuosa first came to the UK, the feedback from our guests has been incredible and the ships has been a huge hit. The increased appetite for stress-free no-fly cruises out of the UK combined with the benefits of the new state-of-the-art Horizon Terminal has resulted in huge demand. The continued deployment of one of our newest and most innovative ships out of the UK is just further proof of the continued importance of the UK market, which began with our first full ex-UK season back in 2018. Since then, we have gone from strength to strength and we are committed to offering the best possible experience for our guests from the UK and Ireland.”
MSC Virtuosa will replace MSC Preziosa’s itineraries offering the ‘Northern Pearls’ winter itinerary from Southampton for Hamburg in Germany; Zeebrugge for Bruges and Brussels in Belgium; Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Le Havre for Paris in France. Itineraries will offer a variety of choice to customers with cruises ranging from three-night breaks to three-week trips for those looking for a longer holiday at sea.
Virtuosa first launched in 2021 and is part of the innovative Meraviglia class of ships, boasting 19-decks made up of 2,421 cabins with a range of fine dining, world-class entertainment, relaxing bars and lounges and an aquapark. MSC Virtuosa is the perfect ship for all seasons, with something on board for everyone.
