MSC are coming back to Southampton.

MSC are coming back to Southampton.

It’s been barely three years since M.S.C ceased their X-UK (sailing from Southampton) Programme.

And now they’re back – in a very big way!


In January 2014 M.S.C stated that they needed time to concentrate on Mediterranean voyages. Re-deploying the MSC Opera down to the Mediterranean for the summer season. However in 2018 they’ll be back with the even bigger, Newer M.S.C Magnifica sailing from Southampton on a variety of northern Europe voyages.

Launched in 2012, carrying 2550 passengers in 95 thousand tonnes of space – the Magnifica has been spending her winters in the Mediterranean and summers in the Baltic. In 2018 she’ll be setting sail for Southampton for a summer season.

As one of the newer generation M.S.C ships, she has a full broad way style theater, Sundecks, multiple bars and restaurants, and importantly plenty of balcony staterooms!

M.S.C have also scheduled a brief return to Southampton for late summer 2017 and have some exceptional prices for the voyages.

Starting at £649 per person – Including a Mealtime drinks package and parking at Southampton based on the 24th September 2018 – that’s a bargain!
