Dear All,

we are facing an unpleasant and recurring situation concerning some Romanian guests on board our ship when calling the British Virgin Islands (MSC Seaview).

Some Romanian guests never returned onboard after the disembarkation to go ashore. This happened on few different cruises some weeks ago and continues to happen.

We have been informed by the Local Authorities that, due to this unpleasant trend, for the next calls and until further notice, the Romanian citizens could be denied to entry the British Virgin Islands.

Guests could embark on the ship and could remain on board but could not be allowed to disembark upon the arrival at the Virgin Islands.

This decision is beyond our control and it is at the discretion of the local authorities.

In case of further developments, we will keep you posted accordingly.

Kind regards

MSC Crociere Spa
