MSC Addresses Tunisia Situation

February 11, 2011 By: Susan Young

MSC Cruises issued a statement today regarding the political turmoil in Tunisia and its decision related to any upcoming itinerary changes for its ships calling there.
Several MSC ships are slated to begin calls in April. Some other  cruise lines — including Disney Cruise Line — have shifted itineraries  elsewhere in the wake of Tunisia's political turmoil.

"MSC Cruises has always implemented all necessary policies to ensure the safety and comfort  of its guests, as this is our main concern. Therefore, with reference to the current situation in the Tunisian Republic, should conditions not return to normal, all the ships concerned will take an alternative itinerary during the  weekly cruises, and not call at Tunis."

The line said the following ships are affected: MSC Fantasia from April 16 to October 15; MSC Splendida from April 10  to November 6; MSC Lirica from April 18 to October  7; and MSC Sinfonia from June 4 to October 15.

However, MSC hedged by saying that if the situation in Tunisia returns to normal, MSC says "the original itinerary will be respected and the call at Tunis will be operated as usual."
