MSC Move More Ships to the Middle East

February 27, 2015

Not a winter lover? Longing to leave your scarf and gloves at home next winter season?

Following MSC’s decision to add more sailings to their Arabian programme, vacationers will have even more opportunity to soak up the sun in the colder months.

MSC cruises noticed a strong demand in their winter excursions programme after four more sailings were operated this year on-board the MSC Orchestra, making a total of twelve UAE sailings. After noticing the jump in interest they’ve announced that the MSC Musica will offer sixteen, eight day long cruises from Dubai in the winter 2015/2016.

MSC’s cruises executive director UK & Ireland Giles Hawkes says “Our Dubai, UAE and Oman programme has been proved incredibly popular with UK guests in search of some guaranteed good weather, we were the first mainstream cruise line to show commitment to Dubai and we are proud to have played a part in building the industry there. The new port facilities are an indication of Dubai’s intentions to grow the business and we are happy to do our bit by extending our next programme. Our fly-cruise offering includes direct flights with Emirates from London, Manchester and Glasgow making them the best value – and best quality – holidays on the market.”

With the beautiful and little visited sultanate of Oman, (our recommendation would be to make sure you see the more traditional side of Oman’s capital), the sparkling city of Dubai, Abu Dhabi (home to amazing and diverse attractions like Ferrari World and the Sheikh Zaved Grand Mosque), Muscat and its old waterfront called Muttra (that visitors have described as ‘enchanting), world class beaches, water sports and guaranteed hot weather, you’re far from the cold call of England’s winter!

So, will MSC be seeing you next December?
