MSC Cruises returns to Tunisia in summer 2022

MSC Cruises is returning to Tunisia as part of summer 2022 sailings in the Mediterranean.

Cruise passengers were among 21 mainly European tourists killed in a terrorist attack on the Bardo Museum in the capital of Tunis in 2015.

The line is to call at the Tunis port of La Goulette as part of itineraries operated by MSC Opera. 

The ship will make a total of 27 calls from April to October 2022.

MSC Cruises and the Tunisian Ministry of Tourism have agreed to work jointly on dedicated future communications to promote Tunisia as a destination and cruises as a preferred option to explore its tourist attractions.

MSC Cruises executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago said: “Tunisia is a beautiful and hospitable country that holds a special place in the heart of MSC Group, from cargo to ferries and cruises.

“I have no doubt that having La Goulette on our western Mediterranean itinerary for MSC Opera next summer will be again a great attraction for many of our guests who wish to visit this incredible country. 

“There is so much to see and enjoy such as the UNESCO World Heritage site of ancient archaeological marvels at Carthage, the charming and picturesque village of Sidi Bou Said and the Medina of Tunis with its hundreds of monuments, palaces, mosques and fountains.”

Tunisia tourism minister Habib Ammar added: We are very excited at the prospect of MSC Cruises’ return to Tunisia next summer and guests of MSC Opera can be assured that they will discover spectacular and beautiful attractions in our wonderful country and the warmest of welcomes.”
