WORLD CRUISE DEPARTS AND COMMENCES THE FIRST ROUND-THE-WORLD RELAY RACE AT SEA
MSC Cruises, the Swiss-based world’s largest privately-owned cruise company has waved ‘bon voyage’ to MSC Magnifica as the final guests embarked today in Barcelona for the Company’s first world cruise. For many, the idea of seeing the world is just a dream, but a world cruise is an easy way to make this dream come true and also the only way to circumnavigate the globe without having to unpack a suitcase more than once! MSC Magnifica’s guests will visit 49 different destinations and create unforgettable memories, as they check destinations off their bucket lists. From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean; through the Panama Canal and over the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, through the Gulf and back to Europe, it is truly the trip of a lifetime.
To capture this incredible journey and to inspire others to consider embarking on an exceptional experience, MSC Cruises has enlisted a team of content creators to take part in the first round-the-world relay race at sea on board MSC Magnifica as she journeys for 119 days across six continents, travelling 32,260 nautical miles and crossing 24 time zones.
The nine social influencers from different parts of the world will each sail a different segment of the cruise and capture their experiences so that their fans can follow this incredible voyage of discovery. They will curate stories inspired by the ‘made by humans’ concept, meeting and interacting with local people ashore in the 32 different countries that the ship will visit, creating a celebration of global culture. They will also step into the shoes of the incredible crew members on board the ship and share this unique experience through their eyes.
