Ahead of the official resumption scheduled for June 30, MSC Cruises announced this weekend the programming of two stops for its MSC Seaside vessel, on June 20 and 27, in the port of Marseille. From July 4, the ship will arrive in Marseille every Sunday.

The latter has already made it possible to resume the company’s activities in both the Mediterranean and the UK since August 2020 with tens of thousands of passengers taking the cruise in complete safety. The protocol was also ratified by the French authorities on the occasion of the visit of the firefighting battalion in Genoa on January 24.
