MSC Meraviglia officially made her maiden call at the port of Hamburg yesterday, marking the start of her new season in Northern Europe. At the traditional exchange of crests attended by Senator Horch from the City of Hamburg as well as representatives from the Ports and other institutions, media and travel partners, MSC Cruises announced that MSC Grandiosa will be christened in Hamburg on November 2, 2019.
This summer, MSC Cruises is opening up Northern Europe to even more cruise guests and, with the addition of MSC Meraviglia, is offering four ships, 36 different itineraries and six possible embarkation ports across Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Denmark.
Designed for all seasons, MSC Meraviglia will spend her first season in Northern Europe offering world-class entertainment with Cirque du Soleil at Sea, a wide choice of dining options, serving a range of international and Mediterranean-inspired cuisines, comfortable and innovative accommodations and a Mediterranean-style promenade featuring multiple bars, restaurants and shops. Home-porting in Hamburg, the ship offers 10, 11 and 14-night itineraries that include the British Isles and Iceland or the North Cape and the Norwegian archipelago, Spitzbergen. In September, an 11-night itinerary takes guests through the Baltic Capitals of Oslo, Nynashamn/Stockholm, Tallinn, and Helsinki with an overnight in St. Petersburg.
