MSC Cruises to offer sailings from the Sun-Baked Spanish Canary Island with brand- new itinerary for Winter 2024-25

7-night itinerary with MSC Opera to some of the most sought-after winter sun destinations in the Canary Islands and Madeira

Sales now open for Brits looking to escape to the Winter sun

Fly & Cruise options available from Manchester, Dublin, Newcastle, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Belfast

Cruises today announced it will base a ship in the Canary Islands for the winter 2024-25 winter season and sales are now open.

MSC Opera will operate 7-night itineraries with six ports of call between 3 November 2024 and 16 March 2025.

The ship will depart from Santa Cruz de Tenerife in Tenerife for 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.

The 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.

With extended stays in ports, the new itinerary gives holidaymakers up to 16 hours in port, ample time to enjoy everything that each vibrant destination has to offer.

Antonio Paradiso, Vice President of International Sales for MSC Group’s Cruise Division and UK & Ireland Managing Director of MSC Cruises and Explora Journeys said: “At MSC Cruises we listen to what our customers want and we know that Brits love to escape harsh winters and get some much-needed winter sun. That’s why we are offering this new itinerary in the Canary Islands for Winter 2024-25 onboard the stylish MSC Opera. We know this sailing will be popular amongst all European guests, especially those from the UK and Ireland which is why sales for are now on sale.”

The islands in the Canaries and the Portuguese island of Madeira will allow guests to immerse themselves in each unique destination’s rich culture, striking landscapes and captivating attractions, while taking advantage of the relaxing warm climate, perfect for sightseeing and soaking up the sun.

As the Canary Islands and Madeira are a popular warm-weather destination in the winter months, the new programme is easily accessible with regular international flights to Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Madeira and Lanzorote.

The new itinerary replaces MSC Opera’s previously planned Red Sea winter 2024-25 programme, which is cancelled in light of the current risk to shipping in this region.

Full details of the new itinerary is available online HERE.
