it is not just MSC that visits Malta. Royal Caribbean, Costa, NCL, Carnival, you have plenty of options..........all the major lines plus a few European cruiselines visit the beautiful Meditteranan Isle. The island upgraded the cruiseship terminal facilities about 3 years ago and it is fast becoming a very popular port of call, sometimes they have as many as 7 cruiseships visiting at a time.
Was your dad in the US 6th Fleet? I ask that cuz I seem to remember the US 6th Fleet being based in Malta until the early 70s.
