The shipping company MSC Cruises is updating the plans for the winter of 2022/23. The schedules of several cruise ships are being changed. The routes offered from Hamburg are also affected.
According to the operator, the MSC Virtuosa will be used on the one-week trips from the Hanseatic city from November 8, 2022. Furthermore, this ship will complete a three-week cruise to the Canary Islands in January 2023. The MSC Preziosa is to be transferred to South America and make trips from Santos.
Those cruises that were originally planned with the Virtuosa should take over the MSC Bellissima. In the Mediterranean, MSC also plans to put to sea the Grandiosa and the Lirica. From October 2022, the MSC World Europe will be used for the first time. This new building is to be stationed in Dubai in the winter of 2022/23. The MSC Seascape is another new build to the fleet. This will be used from Miami for Caribbean cruises.
