MSC Magnifica embarked on a world cruise from Barcelona this week. For many, the idea of seeing the world is just a dream, but a world cruise is an easy way to make this dream come true. Besides, one does not have to unpack a suitcase more than once! MSC Magnifica’s guests will visit 49 different destinations and create unforgettable memories, as they check destinations off their bucket lists. From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean; through the Panama Canal and over the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, through the Gulf and back to Europe, it is truly the trip of a lifetime.
To capture this incredible journey and to inspire others to consider embarking on an exceptional experience, MSC Cruises has enlisted a team of content creators to take part in the first round-the-world relay race at sea on board MSC Magnifica as she journeys for 119 days across six continents, travelling 32,260 nautical miles and crossing24 time zones.
The 9 social influencers from different parts of the world will each sail a different segment of the cruise and capture their experiences. They will curate stories inspired by the ‘made by humans’ concept, meeting and interacting with local people ashore in the 32 different countries that the ship will visit, creating a celebration of global culture. They will also step into the shoes of the incredible crew members on board the ship and share this unique experience through their eyes.
The MSC Cruises relay team consists of Benn TK (Australia), Kara and Nate (USA), Izhan (Spain), Life to Go (Germany), Anil B (Switzerland), Human Safari (Italy), Nick Miller(South Africa), Ayumu Yamashita (Japan) and Vitor Liberato (Brazil).
The many destinations that the ship visits are an opportunity for guests to discover the world. With destinations like the tropical paradises of Costa Rica, Honolulu and Bora Bora; cultural hotspots like Barcelona and Rome; and the fascinating desert landscapes of the Arab Emirates, Oman and Egypt, there is truly something to entrance every kind of traveller. Guests will really be able to make the most of their time ashore with an average stay of 13 hours in port and a choice of more than 250 shore excursions.
