MSC Cruises has revealed that MSC Grandiosa will be the ship sailing from Southampton for spring/summer 2023.
The ship will arrive on the 24 April 2023 and will perform 23 cruises, departing on a variety of itineraries including mini cruises to Rotterdam and Bruges, as well as longer voyages taking in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands.
MSC Grandiosa is a sister ship to Virtuosa, which will sail a full season from Southampton, beginning April 2022.
MSC Cruises UK & Ireland MD Antonio Paradiso said: “We have been delighted with the response to the MSC Virtuosa sailings for 2022 and look forward to bringing another of our largest and most loved ships to the port of Southampton.
“We have seen strong demand for the itineraries for this year with particular interest in the two 14-night sailings to the Mediterranean taking place in the school summer holidays and as a result have replicated many of these itineraries ready for the 2023 season.
“For the last two years planning anything has been difficult but with an optimistic outlook and following demand from customers it is great to be able to put these cruises on sale over a year in advance, and we urge guests and travel agents to take advantage of the great rates available during this early booking window.
“Cruise has always been unique when it comes to early booking, our guests will happily book a number of different cruises several years in advance to secure their holiday, and we are thrilled to be able, once again, to provide them with the opportunity to book early.”
Grandiosa’s ex-UK cruises are on sale now.
