MSC Cruises has launched a new online tool designed to help customers personalise their own packages.
The MSC Hotels & Flights is a new feature on MSC Book, the official trade business portal, and offers a wide range of bookable options from flights and private transfers to more than 13,500 hotels in nearly 40 destinations.
The service is now available in the UK and is being rolled out around the world in time for next summer.
Customers will also be able to use the service to tailor their own direct booking with the cruise operator.
MSC Cruises vice president global sales Achille Staiano said: “This new online service is designed to offer agents and guests a simple and dynamic way to build a tailored holiday from beginning to end.
“MSC Hotels & Flights will make travel planning even easier when booking a cruise holiday.
“Spending an additional few days sightseeing after a cruise in the beautiful cities where we embark or disembark will be easier than ever, and travel agents can now further enrich an unparalleled holiday experience.”
MSC Cruises UK and Ireland managing director Antonio Paradiso added: “The service also represents greater piece of mind for travel agents as MSC Cruises assures cover for guests who have their hotels, flights and transfers booked through the service.”
