MSC Expanding in U.S. With Five Ships For Winter 2023-24

As part of its U.S. expansion plans MSC Cruises has announced that five ships will sail from American homeports in the region by the end of 2023. The brand will offer a range of itineraries in the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Northeast and Canada starting winter 2023-2024.

The new MSC Seascape will lead the way with Eastern and Western Caribbean seven-night cruises following its inaugural voyage from PortMiami later this year. The ship will be joined in Miami by MSC Divina, which will offer everything from three-night cruises to the Bahamas, to 11-night journeys through Central and South America. MSC Magnifica will join the U.S. fleet and sail short cruises to the Bahamas and Key West.

MSC Seashore will sail from Port Canaveral with a mix of short cruises to the Bahamas and seven-night Western Caribbean sailings. This will be the first time one of MSC Cruises’ Seaside EVO ships sails from Port Canaveral.

From New York, MSC Meraviglia will sail to Bermuda, Florida and the Bahamas after completing its inaugural summer season in the Northeast with a series of voyages to both Florida and the Bahamas, and to Canada and New England. Like every ship in the cruise line’s U.S. fleet, its trips to the Bahamas will include stops at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve—the company’s island destination focused on sustainability.

Rubén A. Rodríguez, president, MSC Cruises USA, said: “Bringing more ships to the U.S. allows us to offer a wide variety of itineraries, adding new destinations and providing more opportunities for travelers to discover our unique international flavor. It’s especially exciting to know how many of those guests will experience Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve and see firsthand how we’ve embraced the island’s natural beauty, and how committed we are to sustainability.”

Guests can reserve cruises aboard MSC Seascape, MSC Seashore and MSC Meraviglia, while reservations for itineraries aboard MSC Divina and MSC Magnifica will be announced later.
