MSC Cruises are recognised as major contributors to the annual visitors that travel to the island by Malta on a cruise. During 2005 two MSC ships : MSC Melody and MSC Opera will have called into Malta 29 times bringing 38,000 visitors to the island.

MSC Melody cruises up to 24 October a series of 7-night cruises from Genoa, calling into Naples on Tuesdays, arriving in Malta on Wednesdays, going onto Tunis, then Ibiza, for an overnight stay to make the most of the lively nightlife on this Balearic Island, onto St. Tropez before returning 8 days later to the port of Genoa. Two more 9-night cruise itineraries include Malta as a port of call, departing from Genoa 6 and 15 November also calling into Civitavecchia, Katakolon, Piraeus, Tripoli, Malta, and Naples.

MSC Opera will embark on 9 November for an 11-night cruise also from Genoa sailing to Split, Piraeus, Alexandria, Tripoli, Malta and Naples before crossing the Atlantic Ocean and heading to the Caribbean.

For years, Malta has been a strategic port of call for MSC Cruises, not only for the summer programme but for the autumn and winter cruise series of the Italian MSC fleet. There is an appreciation of MSC Cruises by the passengers. This is a direct result of the true Italian flavour to be found on board the MSC ships, plus the co-operation of the local operators as well as the numbers of visitors arriving on an MSC cruise. The contribution that is made by all these factors is recognised and appreciated by the local Maltese authorities, as a cultural trail and in terms of the international exchange that it provides for all concerned.

For summer 2006, MSC Cruises has confirmed the importance of the MSC Cruise ships visits to the port of Malta.

MSC Opera, from 1 May through to 23 October 2006, will make 26 visits to the island of Malta as it operates its seasonal 7-night cruises from Genoa, calling into Monte Carlo, Valencia, Malta, Tunis and Civitavecchia.

MSC Armonia will dock into Maltaís main harbour 18 November, on an 11-night cruise to Croatia, Greece, Egypt and Libya.

MSC Melody will also call into Malta three times, during a series of 11-night cruises from Sicily, Greece, Egypt and Libya. All three ships will bring a grand total of 63,000 passengers to the island.

The synergies between MSC Cruises and the island of Malta will be highlighted during the press conference that will be held 18 November this year on board MSC Opera. An event where the local authorities of the Maltese government and opposition parties will be present, plus those involved in trade and the Maltese tourist authorities, as well as the media - all acknowledging the importance of Italian style cruises to the islandís economy and tourism product.

MSC Cruises owns currently a fleet of seven ships: MSC Sinfonia, MSC Opera, MSC Armonia, MSC Lirica, MSC Melody, MSC Rhapsody, MSC Monterey - charting the seas in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean, South America and South Africa. This fleet will increase to nine vessels by the year 2007. The newest additions to the fleet will be MSC Musica currently under construction and due to be launched in the Mediterranean, in June 2006, and MSC Orchestra due to be launched in 2007.
