Commenting on the milestone, MSC Cruises CEO Gianni Onorato said: “October has been the strongest month for bookings in the entire history of our brand. This reflects the continued strong investments made in our fleet, which is one of the most modern in the industry with five new state-of-the-art vessels delivered in the last three years alone, and more than any other brand since 2017.

“Consumers are also flocking to our offering due to the excellent value for money all-inclusive holiday proposition cruises represent at all times but especially at this juncture."


Onorato went on to say that MSC Cruises is seeing strong demand in medium to longer term bookings to such an extent that guests and travel partners are starting to close bookings now to avoid disappointment.

Despite the pandemic, MSC Group continued to invest not only in infrastructure in the form new ships but also in the quality of the guest experience.
