MSC Cruises to sail all year round in Japan

MSC Bellissima will depart from Yokohama port

MSC Cruises has announced that it will sail all year round from Japan for the first time.

The line marked the start of its summer 2023 season in Japan on board MSC Bellissima in the port of Yokohama with a special event to celebrate its 15-year presence in the country as it opened sales for its first winter sailing programme in Japan. 

This summer, MSC Bellissima will operate eight- to nine-night sailings from Yokohama and winter 2023-24 voyages will start in November with 11-night, nine-night and six-night cruises from the same port.

Stops include Okinawa, the fifth largest island of Japan known for its tropical climate, beaches and coral reefs; another beach destination Ishigaki, and Miyako Island, famous for its underwater caverns.

MSC Bellissima will also visit the mountain-surrounded Keelung City in Taiwan.

The newly announced year-round voyages will allow MSC Cruises to offer the largest cruise capacity in the country.
