MSC Cruises has reconfirmed its winter 2021/22 sailing program in the South Caribbean where MSC Seaviewwill be based during the season for seven- and 14-night cruises from St. Maarten and Barbados from December 5.

The authorities in Martinique and Guadeloupe are not allowing to cruise ships to bring guests to the islands due to the situation of the pandemic ashore as well as the low vaccination rates. As such MSC Cruises carried out a full evaluation of alternative options and amended the original itinerary to include Philipsburg, St. Maarten as an embarkation port along with Bridgetown, Barbados so that it can still run the winter program in this region in a safe and healthy way.

The updated itinerary reflects the ports that have guaranteed access to the ship and its guests from December onwards and allows for a full day at each destination, in some cases up to 12 hours, enabling guests to really make the most of their time to discover the islands in full.

MSC Seaview will operate two different seven-night itineraries from its two embarkation ports, with many holidaymakers set to sail back-to-back cruises and enjoy a voyage of discovery in southern Caribbean Sea.

The first itinerary will depart the port of Philipsburg, St. Maarten’s capital, and Bridgetown, Barbados; with calls at Castries in St. Lucia; Saint George, Grenada; Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis, before returning to St. Maarten.

The second itinerary will sail from St. Maarten and Bridgetown; with calls at Roseau, Dominica; St. John’s in Antigua and Barbuda; Road Town in Tortola and then back to St. Maarten.

All guests on MSC Seaview will have to be fully vaccinated or show a proof of negative PCR test taken 72 hours prior to embarkation.

Furthermore, in most ports guests will be able to go ashore independently, while for select specific destinations guests will need to go ashore with an MSC Cruises protected shore excursion. More specific details will soon be available from the MSC Cruises website, travel agents and the line’s contact center.

MSC Seaview with 2,066 guest cabins has one of the cruise industry’s highest ratio of open space per passenger and features a beach condo concept that brings guests closer to the sea thanks to special design elements that make the most of the warmer weather.
