Passengers had their temperatures checked Sunday so they could set sail on what is being billed as the first Mediterranean cruise after Italy's pandemic lockdown.

The MSC Grandiosa set sail from the northern Italian port of Genoa on Sunday evening for a seven-night cruise in the western Mediterranean.  Among the port calls are Naples, Palermo, Sicily, and Valletta, Malta. MSC is limiting its guests to the residents of Europe's 26-nation Schengen visa-free travel zone.
