Plan Now for Your MSC Cruises’ Exclusive Yacht Club Summer 2022 Vacation
Updated: Apr 9
MSC Cruises will soon have 17 cruise vessels sailing worldwide. Eleven of these ships have Yacht Clubs, their “ship within a ship.” Or, what I think of them more so as “a private country club on a ship.” Yacht Clubs offer an exclusive luxury experience on a level not typical of large, contemporary cruise lines. They have been exceeding popular among our clients and others who have sailed in this class.
MSC Cruises just announced their Summer 2022 season, which covers April 2022 through November 2022. In this article, I want to share the Summer 2022 itineraries on ships having Yacht Clubs.
In this article, I'll discuss which ships you'll be able to enjoy the amenities of sailing in Yacht Club on in three regions and whether you should book now.
MSC Yacht Clubs Sailing in the Caribbean:
MSC Divina, MSC Seashore
MSC Divina will be sailing from Port Canaveral, Florida with itineraries that alternate between 3- and 4-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas and Ocean Cay along with 7 night cruises which will visit Ocean Cay and Mexican ports. MSC announced that Divina will first operate a 12-night “repositioning” cruise at the beginning of the summer that begins in Miami and ends in Port Canaveral with visits to Jamaica, Aruba, Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Honduras and Ocean Cay. Ocean Cay is MSC’s private island that received acclaim before the pandemic.
MSC Seashore, a new ship entering the fleet in 2021, will also sail in the Caribbean, but will homeport in Miami from which she will alternate between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, both of which will include Ocean Cay.
MSC Yacht Clubs Sailing in Northern Europe:
MSC Grandiosa, MSC Preziosa
MSC Grandiosa and MSC Preziosa will sail from Kiel and Copenhagen alternating between two itineraries which will be 7-night cruises to Baltic capitals and 7-night cruises to the Fjords.
MSC Yacht Clubs Sailing in the Mediterranean:
MSC Fantasia, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Seaside, MSC Seaview, MSC Splendida
MSC Cruises will operate five ships in the Western Mediterranean.
MSC Fantasia will depart from Genoa to Marseille, Barcelona, La Goulette, Palermo and Civitavecchia which is the closest port to Rome.
MSC Meraviglia will depart from Barcelona, sailing to Cannes, Genoa, La Spezia, Civitavecchia and Palma de Mallorca.

MSC Yacht Clubs Sailing in Asia:

Are You New to the Yacht Club Experience?
If you are new to MSC Yacht Club or would enjoy a minute to relive a past vacation, you'll enjoy this short video.
Does it feel too soon to you to plan a trip that far away? It’s not. Consider these facts:
There’s a greater level of pent-up demand for cruising due to the pandemic than our industry has ever undergone.
As people sail in a Yacht Club and share their experiences with friends and on social media, their popularity is growing.
The exclusivity of a small number of suites being in this category that comes with a private club, pool, and restaurant for these guests along with 24/7 butlers and concierge, there’s no such thing as “too early.”
I’d be happy to extend a complimentary phone consultation to you, so we match you to a sailing and accommodations that match your interests.
