There are also options outside of the United States which might be of interest for the 2021-22 winter season. MSC Seaview will homeport out of Fort-de-France, the capital of Martinique. She’ll sail 7-night Caribbean cruises.
There are also good options with another four MSC ships sailing in the Mediterranean including MSC Grandiosa, MSC Fantasia, MSC Magnifica, and MSC Poesia. For the Gulf region, MSC Virtuosa will homeport in Dubai and MSC Opera will offer 7-night cruises that include two overnights in Dubai. There’s an MSC World Cruises to look forward to with MSC Poesia departing in January 2022 and even four ships sailing South America and three ships to offer cruises in South Africa.
There is so much to look forward to once cruises do resume in 2021. We just need to wait for the vaccines to solve it all and cruise lines to make sure guests and crew can be kept safe. Bring on 2021!
