The cruise will start with famous cities and ports in Italy, France, and Spain before sailing to Casablanca to experience Morocco’s markets and medinas. The voyage will take guests across the Atlantic Ocean to South America, where stops include Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Ushuaia, and Easter Island. 

Following the days spent in South America, MSC Magnifica will sail through the South Pacific Ocean to New Zealand and Australia and through Asia to the Indian Ocean. The journey will end again in Europe after a full circumnavigation.

The journey through Australasia is one of the highlights of the cruise, with 19 days spent sailing around the Southern and Western coasts of Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Guests can visit natural paradises such as Eden, famous for its oysters and incredible beaches, and trendy cities like Melbourne and Perth. In New Zealand, guests will have eight days to explore seven iconic cities, including Milford Sound, a breathtaking fjord located on the island’s southwestern coast.

MSC Magnifica to Sail the World Cruise

MSC Magnifica is a 93,330-gross-ton Musica-class cruise ship with the capacity to carry 2,550 passengers at double occupancy and up to 3,605 passengers at full capacity, and has more than enough experience sailing on world cruises.

During their time onboard the Magnifica, which sailed on her maiden voyage in 2010, guests can enjoy the spa for some traditional Balinese massages while the indoor pool with retractable roof adapts to the diverse climate types guests will have been encountering during the journey.

Guests will also have access to various sports such as tennis, minigolf, bowling, a high-tech gym, and a jogging track to keep the pounds from the five gourmet restaurants and 12 designer-themed bars at bay. 

With a range of exciting destinations, cultural experiences, and activities to enjoy, the MSC Magnifica‘s 116-night World Cruise truly offers a bucket list opportunity for cruisers.

The journey will take guests on a circumnavigation of the world, crossing three oceans and visiting 50 breathtaking destinations across 21 countries, setting guests up for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

For those looking to book a World Cruise onboard one of MSC’s cruise ships a little earlier, MSC Poesia will embark on a world cruise in 2024, offering an itinerary that will take travelers to destinations in South Africa, South America, the Caribbean, the US and Canada, as well as Greenland and Iceland. The highlight of next year’s world cruise is a journey through the Amazon River in Brazil.
