Submitted by kgnadmin on

MSC Cruises has announced changes to its upcoming winter cruise season aboard the MSC Orchestra. In response to the evolving Israel-Gaza conflict, the cruise line has introduced a new itinerary for the MSC Orchestra, replacing Red Sea routes that had to be canceled due to proximity to Israeli ports and restrictions in neighboring countries.

The MSC Orchestra, which had initially been set to sail on Red Sea itineraries, will now offer seven-night voyages from December 16, 2023, to April 19, 2024 calling Valencia, Spain; Cagliari, Sardinia; Civitavecchia for Rome, Livorno for Pisa and Florence, Italy; Marseille, France and Palma in Mallorca before returning to Valencia.

A statement from MSC Cruises highlighted the changes, emphasizing the safety and well-being of passengers and crew as their utmost priority during these uncertain times. The cruise line has been closely monitoring the situation and remains prepared to modify ship itineraries if deemed necessary.
