MSC Cruises will offer flights from five regional UK airports on 22 Northern Europe and Mediterranean sailings aboard MSC Magnifica in 2018.
The cruise line has partnered with Flybe to offer flights from Belfast, Edinburgh, Manchester, Glasgow and Newcastle for selected sailings between April and October 2018. Plans are also in place to expand regional departures further, with flights from Wales pencilled in for the future.
MSC Cruises has also announced discounted port parking for less than £8 per day, along with regional coach transfers from 20 towns and cities across the UK via a partnership with Eavesway Cruiselink.
MSC Magnifica has been adapted with the British guest in mind, with afternoon tea, British tea bags, branded beer and cider, a ‘curry corner’ and a British comedy show introduced especially for the UK cruiser. The ship will sail seven to 14-night itineraries, with fares from £819 per person including regional flights.
