You can sail for 116 days to 50 destinations. Here’s how to get on board.
Imagine traveling the world but only having to unpack once. This dream comes true when you sail on a world cruise. And there’s a new world cruise that was just announced this week: MSC Cruises has opened reservations for its 116-night world cruise that will visit 50 destinations in 21 countries on five continents.
Launching in January 2025, the itinerary begins in Europe, with guests departing in one of four cities: Rome or Genoa in Italy; Marseille, France; or Barcelona. From there, it continues to Africa, calling at Morocco and the Cape Verde archipelago. After a transatlantic crossing, the ship will sail around South America, from Brazil to Chile, before heading to Easter Island and Pitcairn Island, the famous site of the uprising in HMS Bounty.
Next up is an Oceania adventure, from French Polynesia to the Cook Islands, followed by New Zealand and Australia. Then the ship, MSC Magnifica, will sail through Southeast Asia, from Indonesia to Sri Lanka. The rest of the journey is in the Middle East, with stops at the iconic UNESCO World Heritage site of Petra in Jordan and numerous locations throughout Egypt, plus a transit passage of the Suez Canal. Finally, the ship returns to Italy for disembarkation.
The adventure takes place on board the MSC Magnifica, a 3,013-passenger ship with five restaurants and 12 bars and lounges, plus the Aurea spa specializing in Balinese massage, a jogging track, activities such as mini-golf and bowling, and a 1,200-seat theater.
Prices for world cruise 2025 on board MSC Magnifica start at $13,199 per person, though you can also join the cruise for shorter segments if you can’t commit to the full 116 nights. Included in that fee: food, drinks, 15 shore excursions (though you can always pay for more), and a 30% discount on laundry.
