MSC Musica Makes Maiden Call in Abu Dhabi

MSC Cruises took part in the inauguration of the new cruise terminal at Zayed Port in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, over the weekend, officially marking the beginning of the winter 2015/2016 season for the MSC Musica.

The ship will sail a winter program from the port, on week-long cruises.

Speaking in conjunction with the inaugural ceremony, Gianni Onorato, CEO of MSC Cruises, declared: “It is an honour for MSC Cruises to have MSC Musica berthed here at Zayed Port as it is inaugurated, which marks the first time that a global cruise line homeports in this fascinating and captivating city. It also reflects the importance that the region and its riveting history and landscapes represent for our guests, and it is testament to MSC Cruises’  capacity to offer the most sought-after destinations as they become accessible.”

Departing from Dubai or Abu Dhabi, guests will embark on a 7-night cruise that will bring them to Khor al Fakkan, then to Muscat, the capital city of Oman, followed by Khasab the northernmost tip of the Sultanate of Oman, before returning to Dubai and Abu Dhabi where guests will disembark.
