It’s ‘Bon voyage’ to guests aboard MSC Magnifica as she departed from Genoa, Italy for MSC Cruises’ second world cruise. Guests aboard MSC Magnifica will discover the world without having to unpack their suitcase during their 117-day trip of a lifetime.
Guests aboard MSC Magnifica‘s world cruise will not only visit 43 amazing destinations across 5 continents but also live a true gastronomic journey through a uniquely international onboard dining programme from ten award-wining chefs from around the globe.
The chefs will join the cruise at different intervals to prepare a complete menu from three to four dishes for guests. These special menus have been created to reflect the chef’s culinary flair and bring flavours of the world cruise destinations to life.
