Cruise ship “MSC Musica“ arrived in Kiel for the very first time.Kiel will be the ship’s hub for this year’s summer season.

The ship operated in South America during the winter months. This time, the Port of Kiel is the final destination of a transfer cruise which started 21 days ago in Buenos Aires (Argentina).

On the occasion of its premiere in Kiel, the mayor Dr Susanne Gaschke welcomed the ship, passengers as well as the crew at the traditional “Plaque and Key Ceremony” and handed over the Maiden Call Plaque to Captain Pierpaolo Scala.

This year, MSC Crociere is visiting the Ostseekai with two large ships – the “MSC Poesia“ and “MSC Musica”. All in all, they offer 41 cruises starting in Kiel.

The “MSC Musica” is one of the three largest cruise ships visiting Kiel this year. The ship, which was put into service in 2006, measures more than 90,000 GT, is 294 m long and is equipped with more than 1,275 passenger cabins. In total, “MSC Musica” offers 21 cruises from Kiel this season and is awaited for passenger turnaround at Ostseekai on September 8 for the last time. The cruises through Northern Europe will take “MSC Musica” to the big cities of the Baltic region as well as along the Norwegian Fjords this year.
