MSC Cruises today revealed plans of its first sailing to China, with the newly-renovated MSC Lirica calling in Shanghai on 1 May, 2016. The 65,000-GRT ship will make the Company’s maiden call after a 60-day Grand Voyage via Europe which departs on 3 March 2016 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Three different versions of the Grand Voyage, with Shanghai as its final destination, will soon be available to cruise lovers and eager travellers. MSC Cruises’ guests will have the opportunity to depart from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Genoa in Italy or Dubai in the UAE.
Lynne Clarke, MSC Cruises Australia declared: “We are delighted to once more be able to offer our guests a brand new itinerary – from Brazil to China via Europe – offering the chance to visit some of the most appealing destinations, certainly across a huge array of people and cultures.”
Mr Onorato, MSC Cruises CEO added: “This new Grand Voyage offering is proof of our steadfast commitment to offer our experienced guests and holiday-makers innovative and sought-after destinations. As MSC Cruises continues to expand the destinations it calls, we are further enhancing our global offering while providing travellers best-in-class experiences and service.”
