MSC Magnifica will be stretched, sadly
September 10, 2019

MSC Cruises announced today that MSC Magnifica will be stretched before the 2021 summer season. The questionable decision will bring the ship to a length of 317 meters, more than Meraviglia, but no doubt Magnifica will not show the same harmonious proportions. The ship will have additional 7,000 square metres on board with 215 cabins more, a new waterpark and redesigned children’s area. Other features will include two extra restaurants, a shopping area and two new major and important onboard environmental advances to complement a wide range of existing leading-edge environmental technologies across the company’s entire fleet.

Magnifica will be then deployed in northern Europe and based in Southampton. The 24 sailings from the british port beginning in May and ending in October will see the introduction of cruises ranging from 2 to 14 nights with brand new varied itineraries encompassing Canary Islands & Madeira, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Baltic Capitals. Cruises will go on sale on the 12th September.

In addition to new itineraries MSC Magnifica will be back with all the ‘Best of British’ enhancements that were initially showcased on MSC Magnifica in 2018, including favourite’s such as pie & mash, back bacon and sausages available in the buffet and Kettles in cabins with of course Yorkshire Tea, which is back by popular demand.
