Luxury Cruise Guide
04 May, 2023
MSC Cruises hosted a special event on board MSC Bellissima in Yokohama, Japan to mark the start of the 2023 summer season and to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the line’s presence in the country. Now, sales have opened for MSC Cruises’ first ever winter season in Japan, starting in 2023, and with cruises year-round from Japan, MSC Cruises offers the largest cruise capacity in the region.
The new winter program on MSC Bellissima will commence from November 2023 with a six-night, nine-night and 11-night cruise from Yokohama. From January to March 2024, MSC Bellissima will homeport in Naha/Okinawa offering guests the opportunity to experience Japan’s landscapes and beaches, cultural heritage, ancient traditions, and modern attractions with multiple destinations—all without having to repack a suitcase.
The winter 2023 and 2024 season will see MSC Bellissima sailing within Japan and to Keelung, Taiwan (China), offering cruises of four- to five-nights, with varying itineraries visiting destinations such as:
- Okinawa, Japan: The fifth largest island of Japan that is known for its balmy tropical climate, expansive beaches, and stunning coral reefs, as well as historical sites.
- Ishigaki, Japan: Another beach destination with snorkeling, diving and surfing sites. Guests can also enjoy Shiraho Reef's rare blue coral in Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park.
- Keelung, Taiwan (China): Keelung City is surrounded by mountains and is home to a bustling waterfront, where street-food stalls at Miaokou Night Market offer traditional snacks and seafood. Several forts surround the area and offer views out to sea.
- Miyako Island, Japan: Known for its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, guests can enjoy the scenery and try local foods, including sweet mangoes, or go out looking for adventure in the many underwater caverns.
This summer, MSC Bellissima is now offering eight- to nine-night summer sailings out of Yokohama, Tokyo. Some itineraries still have availability; for more information, visit www.msccruisesusa.com.Find Great Cruise Deals
