sailing since August 2020, was joined by MSC Seaside in the Mediterranean on May 1. And, our newest flagship MSC Virtuosa made her debut in the UK, not only as a brand-new ship, but also as the first cruise ship back at sea after 14 months. Our progress won’t end there. We are planning for additional ships to return in the coming weeks, all under our industry-leading health and safety protocol which has enabled safe and enjoyable cruises since last summer. We have also opened sales for MSC World Europa, our revolutionary new ship coming into service December 2022. This incredible ship will introduce a groundbreaking design unlike anything in our fleet to-date, and we are proud to be continuing our massive investment in our growth and offering even more incredible new ship experiences for your clients. We know that, despite the wait, our guests are eager to get back to doing what they love: cruising the open sea. The demand is there, waiting for you to tap into. Lean on us for support to help bring your business back to the pre-COVID era. Our one-week Memorial Day Sale officially kicked off on Monday and there are just a few days left for your clients to take advantage of free drinks, Wi-Fi and up to $100 onboard credit. Plus, with the flexibility to cancel up to 48 hours prior to departure with Total CruiseFlex, booking is a no brainer. Now is the time to inspire those dreaming about their next vacation to picture themselves sipping a cocktail on deck and sunbathing on our private island, Ocean Cay.
With this increasingly positive outlook for the future, we do have to recognize that there is work still to be done. Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) is still pressing forward with its advocacy effort and Ready, Set, Sail! campaign to encourage our elected officials and the CDC to prioritize the resumption of cruising by this summer. Thank you to all who have previously participated. Since there is some uncertainty around exact timing for our restart, we can still take action to send a message to the White House and representatives in Congress today that there is no reason cruising should not resume in the United States this summer
