Thanks to the Italian government’s extension of travel limits for the vacation season, MSC Cruises has cancelled MSC Grandiosa‘s scheduled voyage from Genoa, Italy on January 10. As a precaution, the line also has cancelled that ship’s January 17 sailing.
The 1st “restart” cruise of MSC Grandiosa will depart from Genoa on January 24. Weekly cruises will then depart every Sunday from that port with phone calls at the Italian ports of Civitavecchia (Rome), Naples and Palermo, as nicely as Valletta, Malta, with embarkation accessible in each port in Italy.
MSC Grandiosa will offer these itineraries until eventually March 21, right after which the ship will keep on being in the western Mediterranean and present a new itinerary.
In addition, starting February 14, MSC Magnifica will also resume her operation departing from Genoa for 11-night time cruises to the western and eastern Mediterranean, going to Italy, Greece and Malta.
The line’s wellbeing and safety protocols, which have been in area considering that MSC Cruises began restarting European cruises in August, have been not long ago strengthened, based on the evolution of COVID-19 in Europe.
Additional health and fitness/security steps include the next:
- Additional onboard antigen screening for COVID-19 of all guests mid-way by way of their cruise that is in addition to the existing pre-boarding universal tests for all company
- Crew screening has been amplified from two times regular monthly to weekly that is in addition to all pre-boarding screening for all crew and other ongoing wellness monitoring actions
- Elevated frequency of onboard sanitation, especially in public spots and at higher touch points
- Tightening of the definition of “shut contact” for tracing functions, reducing the time that men and women are in make contact with from 15 minutes to 10 minutes.
