A message from our Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago

At MSC Cruises the safety and well-being of our guests and employees is our No 1 priority

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 currently facing in connection with COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily halt through April 30th all ship operations fleet-wide for the safety of our crew and guests. All ships that are currently at sea will do so through the end of their current itinerary, then also come to a halt.

At the present time, new cruise embarkations are scheduled to start resuming from April 30th, included.  


Pierfrancesco Vago, our Executive Chairman, stated last week, “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.
