MSC Cruises is to strengthen its position in the Mediterranean.

MSC Cruises is to strengthen its position in the Mediterranean with the deployment of MSC Divina in the region for summer 2015. The ship – one of MSC’s four flagship Fantasia-class vessels – will shift from its current base in the Caribbean from the end of April next year.

MSC Divina will operate 20 seven-night itineraries next summer, joining MSC Preziosa, MSC Fantasia and MSC Armonia in the Western Mediterranean. The move will increase MSC’s capacity in the entire Med to a total of 760,000 passengers, 75,000 of those on MSC Divina.

The ship will operate out of Rome (Civitavecchia) from May 16 2015 until October 3 2015. Seven-night round-trip sailings will take in La Spezia, Italy; Cannes, France; Palma, Majorca; Barcelona, Spain; Naples, Italy; and Civitavecchia. While in La Spezia, MSC Divina will offer late-night stays, allowing guests the option of visits to Pisa, Florence, Portofino and the Cinque Terre coast.

The ship will finish the Mediterranean season with a special 10-night cruise in October 2015, before returning to Florida for a third season of seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises beginning in November 2015.
