MSC Cruises has extended the deployment of MSC Bellissima in Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea for the Northern Hemisphere winter 2021/2022 season. The decision follows a highly successful inaugural season in the region this summer.
MSC Bellissima and the itineraries in this region have proven a hit since the vessel first commenced sailing in the region from July out of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. MSC Bellissima will replace MSC Magnifica, which was previously scheduled to serve in the region this winter.
This itinerary for the Northern Hemisphere winter 21/22 is brand new for MSC Cruises and is the first of its kind, offering guests unique opportunities to discover Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan by cruise ship.
From 30 October 2021, MSC Bellissima will offer 7-night cruises from Jeddah, calling at the ports of Ras Al Abyad, Aqaba for Petra in Jordan, Safaga for Luxor in Egypt and then AlWajh and Yanbu, in Saudi Arabia.
MSC Bellissima is one of the newest ships in the MSC Cruises fleet, launching in 2019. It features MSC’s ‘ship within a ship’ luxury product, the MSC Yacht Club, spread over three decks and offering private facilities and butler service round-the-clock.
