MSC Cruises announced today that it has suspended remaining 2015 calls in Ukraine and Egypt, replacing them with a number of choice Mediterranean alternatives.

In response to clear market demand, MSC Sinfonia, MSC Opera, MSC Fantasia and MSC Musica will, from autumn 2015 to winter 2016, variously incorporate the Greek islands of Rhodes and Crete, as well as Cyprus and Israel into their sailings.

And there are changes on the other side of the Med as well.

In response to the high demand, MSC Opera will also increase the frequency of her itinerary calling the archipelagos of the Canary Islands, Spain and Madeira, Portugal with an overnight stay in Funchal/Madeira for her schedule in the Canary Islands during the winter 2016.

As well, MSC Cruises will call at Casablanca four times in the winter of 2016.
