MSC Cruises Adds Guadeloupe and Martinique

MSC Cruises has introduced the French Antilles as a new destination for the 2012 – 2013 winter season. The inaugural voyage begins on 30th November 2012 when MSC Lirica departs from Genoa, Italy, for a 16-day/15-night cruise, arriving at her new homeport in Martinique just over two weeks later.

From 15th December to 16th February 2013, MSC Lirica has a schedule of 10 7-day/8-night cruises, departing every Saturday from Fort-de-France, Martinique, and every Sunday from Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe.
