The new offer – which runs from January 22 until March 5, 2015 – is valid on selected MSC Cruises’ ships operating in the Mediterranean and comes on top of the current turn-of-year booking promotion.
MSC Cruises executive director UK and Ireland Giles Hawke said the offer was designed to highlight the operator’s exceptional Balcony cabin choice.
“Across our fleet we have the highest percentage of Balcony cabins in the market,” he said. “Very often regular cruisers think a Balcony cabin may be beyond their budget – but not with us! We’re confident that once guests have experienced an MSC Balcony cabin they won’t go back.”
Participating ships are MSC Musica and MSC Magnifica (Eastern Mediterranean, from Venice) and MSC Preziosa, MSC Fantasia and MSC Divina (Western Mediterranean, from Genoa and La Spezia). Free upgrade applies to seven-night sailings between April 2015 and November 2015, from Outside cabin to Balcony only. Guests can upgrade from Inside cabins to Balcony cabins for an additional £100 per person.
The free upgrade offer effectively adds an even bigger discount to MSC Cruises’ WAVE promotion – cutting at least £450 per person from the brochure price.
Sample price: A seven-night fly-cruise aboard MSC Fantasia, departing April 26, 2015 from Genoa, Italy, calls at Naples, Italy; Messina, Sicily; Valletta, Malta; Tunis, Tunisia; Barcelona, Spain; Marseille, France and Genoa. Balcony cabins available for £649 per person. Price includes return scheduled flights from London with British Airways and transfers.
