MSC Cruises has announced that it is stopping all ship operations. The ships that are currently at sea will complete their current itinerary and take their guests to the disembarkation port and then also stop their activities.
Having previously cancelled operations in the Caribbean, Emirates, Mediterranean and Antilles, MSC Cruises is temporarily stopping all ship operations. In a statement the cruise line says: “At MSC Cruises, we pride ourselves on offering you the best possible cruising and holiday experience. In light of the extraordinary circumstances the world is facing, we’ve decided to temporarily halt all ship operations for the safety of our crew and guests. All cruises that are currently sailing will do so through the end of their itineraries.”
At the present time, new cruise embarkations are scheduled to start resuming from 30 April, included.
Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman MSC Cruises: “This is not a decision we took lightly but under the current circumstances, the health and safety of our guests, crew and the communities ashore – including our employees and their families – must come first. As a family company with over 300 years of maritime tradition, we felt that this was the right decision to make.”
MSC Cruises is looking forward to welcoming their guests on board again soon in the spirit of #AWorldOfDiscovery.
