According to MSC Cruises’ press release, the MSC Seaview departed from the German port of Kiel on her first seven-night cruise in the Baltic Sea.
Currently, the Seaview is the seventh of MSC Cruises’ ships to resume sailings with guests aboard, with three more ships preparing to begin future voyages by the end of the summer, including half of the fleet.
The vessel will homeport in Kiel until the beginning of October and the ship will welcome German and international guests for an itinerary to Visby on one of Sweden’s largest islands Gotland, Nynäshamn near the Swedish capital city of Stockholm and Estonia’s capital Tallinn before returning to her North German base.
MSC Cruises offers shore excursions guarded by the cruise line at all ports.
Additionally, MSC Seaview’s sister ship MSC Seaside has added Marseille to its West Mediterranean itinerary, making it the first French port to reopen for the cruise line and welcome international guests.
MSC Cruises has five ships currently sailing in the Mediterranean – the MSC Grandiosa, MSC Seaside, MSC Orchestra, MSC Splendida, and MSC Magnifica. In May, the MSC Virtuosa became the sixth ship to offer British guests cruises around the UK.
From Aug. 2, the MSC Meraviglia will continue sailing from Miami to the Caribbean and will be joined in the region by the MSC Divina when it resumes sailing from Port Canaveral near Orlando in Florida on Sept. 18.
MSC Seashore will enter service in August and sail in the West Mediterranean before moving to Miami in November for a Caribbean season.
