From here, she will cruise up the east coast to Durban she will be based for the summer season, operating the popular three and four night cruises to Maputo, Portuguese Island and Barra Lodge in Mozambique. This year, the Christmas cruise will sail to Portuguese Island and then on to the beach village of Anakoa in Madagascar, known for its diving, fishing and surfing alongside a quaint fishing village where the locals still craft seaworthy dhows right on the beach.

An 11 Night festive New Year cruise on board MSC Opera has also seen a new addition with New Years eve celebrated under the Reunion skies. The MSC Opera arrives in Mauritius on New Years day where the ship will remain in port for 3 nights.

The MSC Opera also has Port Elizabeth as a port of call towards the end of her season and will perform a couple of cruises out of Cape Town to Mossel Bay, Walvis Bay, and Luderitz before leaving South African shores for the European summer.
