MSC Grandiosa fully dedicated to the Norwegian Fjords

MSC Cruises has confirmed MSC Grandiosa will be fully dedicated to the Norwegian Fjords for the entire summer 2022 season. This sees one of MSC Cruises’ most modern and environmentally advanced ships offering stand-out seven-night itineraries in one of the most stunning regions in Northern Europe.

This summer MSC Cruises will offer an unparalleled choice of itineraries to guests wanting to discover the Norwegian Fjords region as MSC Preziosa and MSC Poesia will be joined by MSC Grandiosa to discover this unique part of the world.

MSC Grandiosa will perform spectacular seven-night itineraries from Kiel, Germany calling at the colourful capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen. The ship then heads north to Norway, calling at the breath-taking village of Hellesylt while experiencing the splendour of Sunnylvsfjord, sail through Aurlandsfjord on the way to the panoramic port town of Alesund and stunning Flam village.

MSC Cruises had previously confirmed they would suspend calls to St Petersburg, Russia and as such, MSC Grandiosa will now be fully dedicated to the Fjords region while MSC Poesia and MSC Preziosa will still call in the Baltics but with St Petersburg replaced with other popular destinations in the region like Stockholm, Tallinn and Visby.
