MSC Magnifica has been welcomed in Darwin, 87 days into her 119-day world cruise from Genoa, Italy. This visit from MSC Cruises, the contemporary brand of the Cruise Division of MSC Group, marks the last port of call in Australia, with MSC Magnifica heading to Indonesia after a full day in Darwin.
Sister ship, MSC Poesia also departed Genoa, Italy on 5 January for simultaneous world cruises – an industry first. Sailing together for the start of the cruises, the two ships parted ways at the edge of the Mediterranean for different routes around the globe.
In honour of the maiden call to this tropical city in the Northern Territory, MSC Cruises organised events to welcome visitors. MSC Cruises invited travel agents and media to allow them to familiarise themselves with the unique MSC Cruises offering.
Lisa Teiotu, Commercial director of MSC Cruises Australia and New Zealand, said: “We have been delighted by the positive feedback from agent partners who have toured MSC Magnifica. The sales for our 2025 World Cruise recently opened, so having a ship in port provides a great opportunity for our trade partners to see one of our Musica class of ships, used for our World Cruises, first hand”.
