MSC Cruises Reroutes Its Ship “Poesia” On A World Cruise To Avoid The Red Sea

MSC Cruises has reportedly informed guests onboard the “MSC POESIA,” on the 121-day cruise, of a reroute to circumvent the Red Sea owing to significant security concerns. Gianni Pilato, the Sales Manager associated with the expedition, reassured guests that despite itinerary adjustments due to security risks, most planned stops are yet in the itinerary.

Pilato pointed out that the original seven-day segment in the Red Sea had to be changed. The Poesia set sail from Genoa in Italy on January 05, embarking on a 121-day journey. Security issues that involved missile attacks by the Houthi Rebels in the Red Sea have necessitated MSC, as well as many other leading shipping majors, to adjust their respective channels. In the case of the cruise, this has reportedly resulted in a revised cruise timeline of about 114 days.

Initially, the itinerary encompassed Mediterranean stops, transit via the Suez Canal, and travel along the East Coast of Africa, followed by crossing to South America. Consequently, the vessel was slated to journey to the Caribbean, Canada, and the US East Coast and conclude the voyage in Germany.

To navigate farther away from security risks, the vessel’s visits to Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia were removed. However, the modified channel now involves sailing from the Mediterranean along Africa’s South Coast, passing via the Cape of Good Hope. North along the East coast of Africa to reach the planned halt in Kenya.

Afterwards, the vessel is going to backtrack via the Indian Ocean and resume the initial itinerary, transiting the Cape of Good Hope before concluding the whole journey.
