MSC Cruises announced today that it has suspended its ships’ calls to St. Petersburg, Russia due to recent developments in the region and related security concerns.
The company said the health and safety of its passengers and crew was its top priority and that from the end of May until October its four ships with Baltic Sea sailings that had included St. Petersburg in any of their summer 2022 itineraries including MSC Preziosa, MSC Grandiosa, MSC Poesia and MSC Virtuosa will all suspend their calls to the Russian city.
Since the onset of the current events the line has been in touch with alternative ports such as Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn to confirm calls for the four vessels and it will communicate the exact details for each individual sailing as soon as possible to travel advisors and any guests affected by the new arrangements.
MSC Cruises will also update its website to reflect the confirmed details of the new itineraries to provide maximum clarity for existing guests as well as for anyone looking to book future vacations in the Baltic Sea.
None of MSC Cruises’ ships are currently calling at St Petersburg.
