MSC Cruises will return to the UK next year with various sailings from the popular port of Southampton.
After pulling out of the UK last year the line have now seen the demand and potential to base ships at the UK port. The Fantasia-class ship, MSC Splendida will sail six itineraries from Southampton during summer 2016. Among these sailings will be MSC's first ever round-Britain itinerary from Southampton.
Giles Hawke, MSC Executive Director said "A lot of our guests and agents have been asking us to base a ship in the UK. People love travelling with us and want to embark in the UK with us."
Among the line's new 2016 programme will be Northern Europe cruises and longer Mediterranean sailings. For the first time a Fantasia-class ship will also operate the Dubai winter season, calling at Bahrain for the first time.
