MSC adds second ship to SA season


MSC Cruises will be bringing two ships to South Africa’s shores for the 2020/2021 cruise season.

This will mark the first time that two different class MSC Cruises ships (Lirica and Musica Class) will be deployed in the country simultaneously.

From December 2020 to March 2021, MSC Opera, which will be homeported in Cape Town, will join MSC Musica, homeported in Durban.

MSC Opera, which can host approximately 2,500 guests and was completely refurbished in 2014 as part of MSC Cruises’ Renaissance Programme, will offer 22 cruises next season alongside MSC Musica.

MSC Musica can cater for approximately 3,200 guests and will offer 40 cruises.

The ships will alternate routes, providing South African cruisers with a wider choice of options.
