Ship to offer stand-out 7-night itineraries to the spectacular Norwegian Fjords from its homeport in Kiel, Germany
Ship’s highly advanced environmental technologies allow for sailing in protected region
MSC Grandiosa cruises on sale now for sailings from May 7 through September 3
Geneva, Switzerland – MSC Cruises announced Wednesday (Mar 16) that MSC Grandiosa will be fully dedicated to the Norwegian Fjords for the entire summer 2022 season. This sees one of the cruise line’s most modern and environmentally advanced ships offering stand-out 7-night itineraries in one of the most stunning regions in Northern Europe. As a result, MSC Cruises will offer an unparalleled choice of itineraries to guests wanting to discover this unique part of the world, as MSC Preziosa and MSC Poesia offer additional seven-night options alongside MSC Grandiosa across the Norwegian Fjords region this summer.
MSC Grandiosa will perform spectacular seven-night itineraries from Kiel, Germany calling at the colourful capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen. The ship then heads north to Norway, calling at the breath-taking village of Hellesylt while experiencing the splendour of Sunnylvsfjord. Guests will then sail through Aurlandsfjord on the way to the panoramic port town of Alesund and the stunning Flam village.
MSC Cruises had previously confirmed that the Line would suspend calls to St. Petersburg, Russia. As such, MSC Grandiosa will now be fully dedicated to the Fjords region, while MSC Poesia and MSC Preziosa will still call in the Baltics but with calls at St. Petersburg replaced by other popular destinations in the region like Stockholm, Tallin and Visby. MSC Cruises is contacting travel agents and guests affected by the updated itineraries for all three ships.
Guests originally booked on one of MSC Grandiosa’s former itinerary in the Baltics and still wishing to experience a cruise there can opt for one of the summer 2022 itineraries on MSC Poesis or MSC Preziosa instead:
MSC Poesia – From Warnemunde, Germany, these 7 and 11-night itineraries feature calls to destinations including Riga, Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn, Copenhagen, Kristiansand, Oslo and others from May 14 through September 21.
MSC Preziosa – From Kiel, Germany, these 7 to 12-night itineraries feature calls to destinations including Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger and others from May 1 through September 21.
