Cruise travelers know there is no better way to see unique and amazing destinations than on a cruise, and MSC Cruises is now offering guests the ultimate in world travel with their 121-day 2024 World Cruise, featuring a brand new and exciting itinerary.
With 52 ports of call in 31 countries across 4 continents, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is not to be missed.
2024 World Cruise Itinerary Revealed
This outstanding world cruise will depart during the first week of January, 2024, and guests have a choice of embarking from Rome, Genoa, Marseille, or Barcelona.
Through the next four months, travelers will explore the Mediterranean before transiting the Suez Canal into the Red Sea and amazing ports of call in Israel, Saudi Arabia, and along the African coast.
After a south Atlantic crossing, guests will then experience the vibrancy of South America and head north into the Caribbean, before continuing even further north to Canada and back east again to Greenland, Iceland, and northern Europe, before finally ending May 4, 2024, in Germany.
Stunning highlights of this unique itinerary include both popular ports and less accessible destinations that aren’t generally offered on typical itineraries.
Guests will visit outstanding ports such as Luxor, Egypt; Petra, Jordan; Mombasa, Kenya; Walvis Bay, Namibia; Belem, Brazil; New York, United States; Halifax, Canada; Nuuk, Greenland; and Reykjavik, Iceland.
Overnight stays in 12 ports will permit deeper, more intimate exploration of the history, culture, and nightlife of amazing cities such as Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Cape Town, South Africa; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Miami, Florida; Quebec, Canada, and more.
The 2024 route is all new and unique. Rather than circumnavigating the globe, this itinerary is circling around the Atlantic Ocean, offering more intimate destinations in areas that aren’t often visited on world itineraries.
MSC Cruises is offering amazing shore excursions to introduce travelers to the richness and diversity of each destination.
With each booking, 15 shore tours are included, such as an archeological expedition in Cyprus, a Nazareth and Jordan River baptismal experience in Israel, gin tasting in South Africa, and a variety of city highlights, top 10, and similar overview tours along the way.
Additional tours are available to book both before the cruise as well as during the extensive voyage.
