Important Update for all passengers embarking on MSC Sinfonia, 25 April 2016.
MSC Sinfonia encountered heavy seas on the journey from Durban to Cape Town and for the safety and comfort of all passengers on board, made an unscheduled call at Port Elizabeth . This will delay the arrival of MSC Sinfonia in Cape Town due on Monday morning and as a result the cruise scheduled for Monday is delayed. At this time MSC are unable to confirm when Sinfonia will arrive as this depends on the sea conditions as there is a second storm moving up the coast. We will continue to provide updates as we receive them from the vessel.
