Geneva, Switzerland – December 27, 2023  MSC Cruises, the world’s third-largest cruise line, revealed its New Year’s Sale today, which will kick off the 2024 Wave Season with sailings starting at $279. Cruisers who take advantage of the deal will have the opportunity to sail to breathtaking destinations around the world onboard MSC Cruises’ award-wining fleet, from the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean and The Bahamas to the breathtaking historical cities of the Mediterranean.

Suzanne Salas, SVP, Marketing & E-Commerce, MSC Cruises USA, said: “With demand continuing to rise for cruising and travelers actively planning their 2024 vacations, Wave Season is the perfect time to get a great deal on a cruise before prices increase. This year, MSC Cruises has more ships and itineraries sailing from ports in the U.S. than ever before.

This Wave Season deal is our way of inviting travelers to try our amazing, innovative ships and enjoy the unique and memorable experience MSC Cruises has to offer, while giving loyal guests a fantastic way to save on their next cruise. Cruising is already a huge value compared to land-based vacations and with value-adds like an all-inclusive drink package, Wi-Fi, kids sailing free and a credit to use on board, the savings are even greater.” 


Now through January 15, guests can book a cruise vacation starting at $279 with an Easy Plus Drink package and Wi-Fi for up to two devices per stateroom included. Plus, kids sail free! Here’s how the savings stack up:
