Celebrating 500,000 guests in Brazil with MSC Cruises

By Cruise Booking Team

MSC Cruises recently called it a day after almost six months of sailing in Brazil for its 2022-23 program.

The five-ship local season achieved the highest passenger numbers of all time by sailing over 500,000 passengers, according to the company.

MSC offered 142 cruises to different ports in Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay from five different homeports.

Fourteen full-ship charters were registered, 62 marriages were celebrated, and over 300 affinity groups were onboard MSC ships.

Adrian Ursilli, the company’s General Manager in Brazil, lauded the results, emphasizing the market’s recovery after the pandemic.

One year ago, we were finishing one of the most challenging seasons in Brazil because of a global health emergency. He said the challenges had been overcome, thanking local authorities and other partners for their assistance.

I’m proud to say that we have embarked over 500,000 local guests in Brazil as a milestone in our operations. During this resumption period, our travel agents, partners, and the team worked tirelessly, contributing significantly to this success,” Ursilli concluded.

MSC Fantasia arrived in Brazil in early November, beginning the company’s season in 2022-23.

The MSC Seashore became the largest cruise ship ever sailing from a Brazilian port after joining the MSC Armonia, MSC Seaview, MSC Preziosa, and MSC Seashore in December.

A total of two additional ships visited the country during this period. As part of its 2023 World Cruise, MSC Magnifica visited Brazil, while the MSC Musica sailed to several ports.

As part of its 2023-2024 fleet expansion, MSC plans to bring five ships to the country again. The MSC Grandiosa will replace MSC Seashore as the country’s largest vessel, alongside MSC Seaview, MSC Preziosa, MSC Lirica, and MSC Armonia.
