Canadian Sailings: MSC Monterey Reinstates Montreal-Genoa Passenger Service Last Offered By Hanjin Palermo In November 2012

MSC Monterey

Note: Service NSB’s MSC Monterey now offers a 28-day round trip vyage between Montreal and Genoa, calling at Gioia Tauro and Livorno while on the eastbound voyage from Montreal, with a direct return to the St Lawrence port. Service was temporary and has now ended. We think that this is MSC’s spare ship as she never stays on on route for very long!

MSC MONTEREY, round trip duration about 28 days, 1 Owners & 2 Double cabins

Route: Montreal – Gioia Tauro – Leghorn – Genoa – Montreal

For the time being bookings are only possible for the following departures:

From Montreal about November 16 / December 14 / January 11

From Genoa about December 02 / December 30 / January 27

A waitlist has been opened for later departures.
