Restart of cruises
From Aug 22, 2020, the 'MSC Magnifica' will perform 7-night itineraries from Bari and Trieste, calling at Corfu, Katakolon, Piraeus. Over the past months since temporarily halting its cruise operation in connection with the development of the global health pandemic ashore, MSC Cruises has been hard at work to develop a new health and safety operating protocol to support its return to service once the time is right. New operating procedures are designed to meet and exceed guidelines provided by national and international health authorities like the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and will be put into place both before and after boarding the ship. Among the measures: Health screening for all guests, including a mandatory health questionnaire (sent in the cruise ticket), a contactless temperature check and COVID-19 screening. New sanitation methods including electrostatic sprayers to kill bacteria and viruses and use of hospital-grade disinfectant products. Daily contactless temperature check for all guests during the cruise. Newly designed activities with smaller group sizes will be introduced with themed events, fun games, kids and family activities, talent shows, fitness, dance and more.Service will be adapted to respect social distancing: all meals and drinks will be served to guests at their table. At the buffet restaurant, self-service will be temporarily unavailable and the food will be plated and served to guests.Based on the current regulations, all guests will be required to get MSC excursions to get ashore.MSC will contact the existing bookins from August 1 to September 30 to offer the new itineraries. The reprotection will be available only for Schengen countries resident.
