MSC Grandiosa will be able to dock at any cruise port around the world, expanding your choice of itineraries and destinations: a huge added bonus for any traveller.
Please note that during summer 2020 departures, MSC Grandiosa will be visiting the ports of Genoa (Italy), Civitavecchia/Rome (Italy), Naples (Italy), Palermo (Italy) and Valletta (Malta).
Discover below some of our itineraries highlights:


Genoa is marvellously eclectic, vibrant and full of rough-edged style; it’s a great cruise excursion.
Indeed "La Superba" (The Superb), as it was known at the height of its authority as a Mediterranean superpower, boasts more zest and intrigue than all the surrounding coastal resorts put together.

Old Port and the Bigo
Truogoli of Saint Brigida


Not far from Civitavecchia port lies Rome, one of the world’s most distinguished cities. Be enchanted by its many architectural wonders including the famous Colosseum, the Roman Forum or The Trevi Fountain. A journey to Rome isn’t complete without a visit to Vatican City, located in the heart of the Italian Capital. Choose an MSC Cruises excursion to see St. Peter's Square, St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and famous the Sistine Chapel.

The Colosseum
Spanish steps from Piazza di Spagna
View of St peter's Cathedral


Naples is a large, sprawling Mediterranean port, with a centre that has many different focuses just waiting to be discovered on an MSC Mediterranean cruise excursion.
No trip to Naples is complete without visiting the area between Piazza Garibaldi and Via Toledo, roughly corresponding to the old Roman Neapolis (much of which is still unexcavated like in many other Italian cities).

*available during Summer 2020 itineraries.

Charming Capri


Palermo, the capital of the island of Sicily, is a cosmopolitan city known for its splendid architecture, delicious street food, and outrageously beautiful beaches. During your visit in Palermo you will be able to see the Politeama and Quattrro Canti squares and the city's Cathedral. With one of our MSC excursions, you can also discover the archeological sites of Segesta or the coastal town of Cefalu.

Mondello Beach
Palermo's Cathedral


The UNESCO-protected port of Valletta, the capital of the island of Malta, is one of the must-see stops for every Mediterranean cruise of merit.

You can admire this port, constructed in the second half of the 16th century by the Frenchman Jean de la Valette and moulded by the religious and military Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, from your MSC ship even before disembarking.

Church Assumption Our Lady
Comino Island
Popeye Village


Barcelona – Spain’s second city, and the self-confident capital and port of Catalunya – vibrates with life, and there’s certainly not another city in the country to touch it for sheer style, looks or energy.

A cruise excursion to Barcelona city centre will take you to discover its world-class art museums and its fashionable designer restaurants, bars, galleries and shops.

*available during winter 20-21 itineraries

Gaudi's Casa Battlo
Las Ramblas
Sagrada Familia


Are you ready to find your way around Marseille on an MSC Mediterranean cruise?
When cruising southern France, you have to know that Marseille is the most renowned and populated metropolitan area in the country after Paris and Lyon. When you alight from your MSC cruise ship, the cafés around the Vieux Port, where glistening fish are sold straight off the boats on quai des Belges, are wonderful spots to observe the city’s street life.
