Alana Byrne hosted the MSC Cruises event in the plush surroundings of the River Lee Hotel in Cork City where a packed audience enjoyed an evening that ended in the wee hours of the morning. The evening included a detailed update on upcoming milestones in the MSC calendar.

 

This November, MSC will be opening their Caribbean island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve. Described as a “one-of-a-kind experience on an authentic Caribbean island, while connecting with the natural world, feeling the warmth of the Bahamian spirit and immersing in an eco-friendly environment," this allows you to relax, discover and explore the beauty of the island with dedicated excursions (I'll happily volunteer to try this one out!).

 

Alana also took the opportunity to update the Irish travel trade on MSC's latest and largest addition to their fleet, the Grandiosa launching this November 2019. Celebrations are scheduled for Southampton with an opportunity to join the MSC team for one of their legendary launch parties.

 

Book an MSC cruise on any ship, on any date and email the reference to tradesupportUK@MSCcruises.co.uk. Hurry! You have until the 3rd September 2019 to get your entries included in the draw.

 

On the night, Katarina Trnikova (J. Barter Travel) was the lucky winner of a place on the Grandiosa launch party this November with other vouchers and jewellery up for grabs for a number of lucky winners.
