MSC Cruises Changes Itineraries Due to the Situation in Egypt

With the civil unrest presently taking place in Egypt, the American Embassy is taking the precaution of evacuating nonessential personnel and dependants and assisting American residents and tourists who wish to leave the country. Cruise lines are taking precautions as well.

Due to the escalating violence in Egypt and for the safety of their guests, MSC Cruises has decided to alter the upcoming calls of MSC Magnifica and MSC Splendida at Alexandria on Sunday, Jan 30 and Monday, Jan 31.

Instead, MSC Magnifica will call at Limassol, Cyprus and Haifa, Israel on Sunday, Jan 30 and Monday, Jan 31, while MSC Splendida will call at Izmir, Turkey on Monday, Jan 31.
