One of MSC Cruises’ major ships has officially made its debut in North America.
The MSC Meraviglia, which will eventually be homeporting in Miami, will launch its first Caribbean cruises out of New York on Oct. 28.
MSC Meraviglia will be the first ship to call on Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, the company’s new private destination in The Bahamas.
Ocean Cay will debut Nov. 9.
“We are so thrilled to welcome MSC Meraviglia, a truly beautiful ship, to the U.S. as she marks another major milestone for MSC Cruises in the North American market,” said Ken Muskat, EVP & Chief Operating Officer of MSC Cruises (USA). “Due to significant demand, for the first time in MSC Cruises history we now have four distinct ships sailing in the region as MSC Meraviglia joins MSC Seaside, MSC Armonia and MSC Divina. With each ship offering its own unique design and guest experience inspired by our European heritage, we look forward to providing travelers with even more choice and variety to best fit their vacation needs.”
From Nov through April 2020, MSC Meraviglia will sail two different seven-night Caribbean itineraries, including stops at ports in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Mexico, Belize, Honduras and The Bahamas.
