The lengthened of MSC Magnifica
But the MSC Magnifica that will sail the seas in 2021 will be a transformed cruise ship. Actually, MSC Magnifica will be renovated at the beginning of 2021, for an investment of 130 million euros, which will also lead to the lengthening of the ship, with the insertion of a 23-meter long section. The addition will result in an additional 7,000 square meters of available space and 215 additional cabins (with 63% of the total cabins with balconies) even more comfortable.
Moreover, the ship will be equipped by an additional 800 square meters of outdoor spaces, an aquapark, a redesigned children’s area, new entertainment areas, two additional restaurants and a shopping area.
Ended the works, MSC Magnifica will have systems to reduce environmental impact: a system for selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which helps to reduce nitrogen oxide in pure nitrogen and water, and a next-generation wastewater treatment system (AWT), which purifies wastewater up to obtain quality water. The system meets the “Baltic Standard” and treats wastewater at a higher level. Will also be installed a hybrid exhaust gas cleaning system (ECGS). Finally, to minimize emissions even in port, the ship will be equipped with a system capable of connecting to the local electricity grid during mooring, in ports equipped with the electrification of the docks.
Most likely, the site of the works will be the Fincantieri plant in Palermo. The shipyard had already completed the lengthened of the ships of the Lirica-class company: MSC Armonia, MSC Sinfonia, MSC Opera and MSC Lirica.
MSC Magnifica 2021 summer’s itineraries
After the restyling, MSC Magnifica will sails for new itineraries from Southampton to Northern Europe and the Baltic (12 or 14 nights cruises), or from England to the Mediterranean, touching the Canary Islands, Madeira and Barcelona.
From May to October 2021, 24 routes will depart from Southampton, with itineraries from 2 to 14 nights.
There will also be a 12 nights cruise in May with stops in Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Lanzarote, three Canary Islands. A 14 nights cruise to the Mediterranean is scheduled for August, which will include Palma de Mallorca and Monte Carlo.
The ship will offer four different routes between the Norwegian fjords and will stops in two new destinations: Skagen (Denmark), famous for the midnight sun, and Rosendal (Norway), the world’s fourth-largest fjord.
Among the new proposals, May the 1st mini-cruise: three nights, starts in Southampton on Friday evening, Saturday in Zeebrugge (Belgium), and return to the port of departure. Five mini-cruises also in autumn in the Mediterranean, departing from Genoa: 3 or 4 nights to Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Marseille.
