Last week came news from MSC Cruises that it would be returning to the ex-UK market in 2017/18 with its 2,550-berth MSC Magnifica, to be based in Southampton in 2018. Elsewhere, Hurtigruten has announced that its new 530-berth expedition ship Roald Amundsen (above) will be based at Punta Arenas, Chile, in 2018, while its 254-berth Fram and 600-berth Midnatsol will work from Ushuaia, Argentina. Meanwhile, Saga is reported to have confirmed a second order for a less than 1,000-berth ship from Meyer Werft in Papenburg.
