Brightline, an intercity rail service in the United States, has announced a strategic partnership with MSC Cruises.
MSC Cruises is now the official cruise line partner of Brightline. The collaboration will provide several benefits to clients.
- A bag-free experience prior to setting sail.
- A travel option between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale to PortMiami when traveling on the rail system.
Brightline will offer Special Train to Port bundle packages for MSC Cruises’ guests sailing from PortMiami to park their car, check-in and check their luggage at Brightline stations prior to getting on the cruise.
The railway service company will bring riders’ luggage directly to guest staterooms on the ship. The packages will also include a Lyft Ride from Virgin MiamiCentral station to PortMiami. Train to Port package fares may vary and will include train tickets, bag check, a roundtrip Lyft ride and parking services.
MSC Cruises currently operates four cruise ships out of PortMiami: MSC Seaside and MSC Armonia, which sail year-round; MSC Divina, which sails seasonally; and MSC Meraviglia, which will join the ships sailing from Miami this fall, seasonally. Guests sailing on any of the four ships can utilize MSC Cruises and Brightline’s new Train to Port offerings.
Brightline is an intercity passenger rail service connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. In the future, service is anticipated from Orlando to Tampa. A new system between Las Vegas and Southern California, slated to launch in 2022, willl connect the over 22 million people living in Southern California to Las Vegas.
More cruise carrier partnerships will be announced soon.
