MSC Cruises has officially begun sales for its 2024 MSC World Cruise, which will depart on January 4, 2024 and feature a brand-new itinerary.
Passengers onboard the MSC Poesia will be treated to a voyage that encompasses 52 amazing destinations in 31 countries. The cruise line predicts that the voyage will sell out quickly, as it has done every time it has been offered since 2019.
The ship will embark passengers from Civitavecchia/Rome, Genoa, Marseille, and Barcelona over the course of four days (January 4-7, 2024) on an expedition that will take them around the world for about four months.
The 121-day journey begins in the Mediterranean Sea, with stops in France, Spain, Italy, Malta, and Cyprus, as well as an overnight stay in Haifa, Israel, and a day trip to Cairo via Port Said/Alexandria, Egypt.
The ship departs from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for the beautiful waters of Zanzibar, the Seychelles, and Mauritius before going to mainland Africa for a tour of South Africa.
The ship then makes its way over the Atlantic Ocean to South America, where passengers will cruise up the Amazon River to Manaus, stop at Salvador de Bahia and Belem, and spend the night in Rio de Janeiro.
On her way to North America, MSC Poesia will visit some of the most popular Caribbean destinations, including Saint Lucia, Barbados, Martinique, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, and MSC’s private island, Ocean Cay.
The World Cruise will then stop in Miami and New York City for overnight stays before heading north to Nova Scotia and Quebec in Canada. The ship will stop in some of Northern Europe’s most beautiful cities, as well as Greenland and Iceland, on its journey back to its home port.
15 shore excursions, a Dine & Drink package, and 30% off all laundry are included in every MSC 2024 World Cruise booking, with extra excursions and packages available both in advance and onboard.
