MSC Cruises amends 2021-22 southern Caribbean programme

MSC Cruises has amended its 2021-22 southern Caribbean programme a month before the first departure.

Following a “full evaluation” of the current Covid-19 restrictions in place at each of the programme’s original ports of call, 5,331-passenger MSC Seaview will now operate two seven-night itineraries from either St Maarten or Barbados from December 5.

The itineraries can be joined together so passengers can sail for 14-nights. Passengers can spend up 12 hours at each destination.

The first itinerary will call into St Lucia, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis before returning to St Maarten.

Dominica, Antigua and Tortola in the British Virgin Islands are the ports of call included in the second itinerary out of St Maarten.

Passengers can choose to embark in Barbados, which is included in both itineraries.

Prices for the 14-night Southern Caribbean sailing, departing from Barbados on December 7, 2021, including return flights from Heathrow, start from £2,099 per person.

MSC Cruises chief executive Gianni Onorato said: “We have worked hard to find alternative options for the itinerary that would allow us to confirm our usual winter season here.

“We would like to particularly thank our airline partners who have amended their charter flight schedules to serve the new itinerary to make it accessible for our guests.

“For this, we are still able to offer our guests an incredible cruise holiday this winter, calling at some of the most beautiful islands in the South Caribbean on board MSC Seaview.”
