I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

The gourmet dining is out of this world, offering an ever-changing array of Mediterranean and International specialties, all freshly prepared from the finest ingredients, with authentic pizzas and gala surprises to further ring the changes.

With so much to explore aboard as you voyage to dream destinations larger ships cannot visit, MSC Opera offers an incomparable cruise experience.
