MSC names Sunwing as its Tour Operator Partner of the Year, 2019

TORONTO — Sunwing has once again won the distinction of being MSC Cruises’ Tour Operator Partner of the Year for 2019.

This marks the third time Sunwing has won the award, which was welcome news to Reg Mendes, Sunwing’s Vice President of USA and Cruises. “MSC Cruises has been a part of the Sunwing cruise program since the beginning and is a long-time favourite amongst Canadian travellers with its modern architecture, convenient amenities and nonstop entertainment,” he said.

Ian Patterson, Country Manager Canada for MSC Cruises, added: “Since Sunwing started their cruise program in 2009, the tour operator has been a valued partner of MSC Cruises. Their convenient cruise package options from a host of gateways across Canada make it easier than ever for vacationers to set sail on board MSC Cruises. We look forward to continuing and growing our relationship with Sunwing in the years to come.”

Travellers can set sail with Sunwing onboard the MSC Seaside, with departures from Toronto, Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa and Moncton; and the MSC Meraviglia, with departures from Toronto, Quebec City and Montreal.

Sunwing guests can take their cruise budget even further with the Fantastica Experience included in their MSC cruise package, which offers preferred stateroom locations, preferred dining times and the Easy Drink Beverage Package. Plus, groups of eight or more cruising together can take advantage of exclusive offers where the 16th adult travels free.

In addition, travel agents can earn 10X the STAR Agent Reward Points that convert into cash on all new cruise bookings made by Feb. 26, 2020, for departures between now and March 29, 2020, onboard all ships from all gateways.
