A change in the geopolitical situation in Israel has caused MSC Cruises to modify the East Mediterranean itineraries for the MSC Sinfonia and MSC Musica.
Haifa in Israel will be replaced by Istanbul in Turkey in the MSC Sinfonia’s future eight 11-night voyages, while Rhodes will be replaced by Piraeus in Greece and Limassol in Cyprus by Izmir in Turkey.
The new itinerary for the MSC Sinfonia begins on Oct. 21. The ship will travel to Italian ports Genoa, Civitavecchia and Messina, followed by Piraeus, Izmir and Istanbul before returning to Genoa.
The MSC Musica will depart Piraeus, Greece next month for three 7-night voyages, with Rhodes replacing Haifa on October 18 and 25 and Marmaris in Turkey on November 1.
In the winter months, we have worked quickly to offer a very attractive alternative to the itineraries for MSC Sinfonia and MSC Musica based on the safety of our passengers and crew.
As a result of the changes, the line has begun to communicate with all passengers and their travel agents.
To offer maximum clarity to existing passengers and to anyone interested in booking future holidays at sea during the winter months in the East Mediterranean, MSC Cruises will also update its website with all the confirmed itineraries.
