MSC Cruises reinforces support for Dubai with 2016 sailings

Holidaymakers will have even more opportunity to soak up some sunshine next winter following MSC Cruises’ decision to add more sailings to its Arabian programme.

MSC Musica will offer 16 eight-day/seven-night cruises from Dubai for winter 2015/2016 – four more sailings than were operated this winter aboard sister ship MSC Orchestra.

MSC Cruises’ popular Gulf cruises call into Abu Dhabi, UAE; Khor al Fakkan, UAE; Muscat, Oman and Khasab on the Musandum Peninsula before returning to Dubai for an overnight stay on board which allows guests to enjoy the unique nightlife of the glittering desert city.

“Our Dubai, UAE and Oman programme has proved incredibly popular with UK guests in search of some guaranteed good weather,” said MSC Cruises executive director UK & Ireland Giles Hawke.

“We were the first mainstream cruise line to show commitment to Dubai and we are proud to have played a part in building the industry there.


“The new port facilities are an indication of Dubai’s intentions to grow the business and we are happy to do our bit by extending our next programme.

“Our fly-cruise offering includes direct flights with Emirates from London, Manchester and Glasgow making them the best value – and best quality – holidays on the market.”

MSC Cruises has seen strong demand this winter for MSC Orchestra’s 12 UAE sailings, the last of which departed on February 14th 2014.
