MSC Adds New Programs in the Canaries

MSC Opera

MSC Cruises will base a ship in the Canary Islands to offer sailings during the winter 2024-25 season, according to a press release.

The MSC Opera will operate seven-night itineraries with six ports of call between Nov. 3, 2024, and March 16, 2025. Departing from Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the ship will visit Las Palmas in Gran Canaria, Puerto del Rosario in Fuerteventura, Funchal in Madeira, Santa Cruz de la Palma in La Palma and Arrecife in Lanzarote before returning to Tenerife.

MSC Opera’s new itinerary also offers flexible embarkation options, including Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Sundays, Las Palmas on Mondays, Madeira for Funchal on Thursdays or Fridays and Arrecife on Saturdays.

The new itinerary replaces the ship’s previously planned winter 2024-2025 program in the Red Sea, which was canceled due to the current risk to shipping in that region.
