MSC have just announced that MSC Magnifica will be based in Southampton for a whole season in 2018 with a very special twist.
Not only will she be completing a season of Southampton sailings from April, but she’ll also be newly fitted out with a kettle in every cabin. And better yet, cruisers will have the chance to vote on the brand of kettle that they’d like to see in every cabin to make sure their favourite brand is on-board!
The Magnifica will be sailing on a mix of Mediterranean and Northern Europe itineraries based on the feedback of UK cruisers. The ship has 5 gourmet restaurants, 12 bars and 5 different kids and teen club venues as well as the award winning MSC Aurea Spa.
The sailings will also offer special British touches such as roast dinners on the menu, afternoon tea and British craft drinks such as John Smith beer and Guinness available in the bar.
The 2500 passenger ship is also even more accessible as many itineraries can be paired with port parking, regional flights or coach transfers. The 22 sailing dates will also be all inclusive on drinks and wi-fi on-board!
Antonio Paradiso, MD of MSC Cruises for the UK & Ireland said “We have carefully considered all the feedback from the UK market and have created a cruise package to suit the needs of British guests. In addition I have personally handpicked the itineraries based on my conversations with agents and hope that the bespoke itineraries, coupled with the fabulous all-inclusive beverage and Wi-Fi offer will create the perfect holiday experience for the British market.”
So what do you think of the news? What brand of tea would you be voting to see on-board? Will you be setting off on any of Magnifica’s sailings? Let us know in the comments below…// END - About the Author ?>
