  • MSC Meraviglia to answer high demand for summer sailings to Florida, The Bahamas and Bermuda from New York City

MIAMI, Fla. – April 18, 2024 – MSC Cruises announced its lineup of summer 2025 itineraries for the North American market today, with four ships sailing from U.S. homeports and offering a wide range of vacation options for travelers. Departing from New York City, Miami and Port Canaveral, these itineraries will call on popular destinations in the sun-soaked Caribbean, Florida, The Bahamas, and Bermuda, with most itineraries including stops at the cruise line’s picturesque private island – Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.

Rubén A. Rodríguez, President, MSC Cruises USA, said: “We want our guests to experience MSC Cruises’ most modern and innovative ships, whether they’re on a quick weekend getaway or the vacation of a lifetime. The Summer 2025 season will be an exciting one for us. MSC World America will let our guests experience the future of cruising with 7-night itineraries from Miami, and we’re enhancing our short cruises from Miami with the fantastic MSC Seascape providing 3- and 4-night options. We’re especially thrilled that all four ships sailing from U.S. homeports will call at Ocean Cay, providing guests with the opportunity to experience MSC Cruises’ unique and beautiful private island in The Bahamas no matter where they embark.”

MSC Cruises will have two ships sailing from its next generation terminal at PortMiami—set to be the world’s largest—for the summer 2025 season. Miami’s newest megaship, the highly anticipated flagship MSC World America will be embarking on her inaugural season in April 2025. As the second in MSC Cruises’ trailblazing World Class, the ship will be MSC Cruises’ largest U.S.-based vessel and redefine the cruise experience for her guests. The LNG-powered MSC World America will offer 7-night sailings departing on Saturdays to both eastern and western Caribbean ports, including San Juan, Puerto Rico; Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic; Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico; Isla de Roatan, Honduras; and Ocean Cay.

MSC Seascape will also call the new PortMiami terminal home, offering a mix of 7-night itineraries in the eastern and western Caribbean along with new 3- and 4-night sailings to The Bahamas and Ocean Cay to meet the growing demand for mini-cruises. This marks the first time a Seaside EVO Class ship will offer short cruises from Miami. Select 3- and 4-night itineraries will stay overnight at Ocean Cay, giving guests more time to enjoy the cruise line’s private island with activities including a sunset champagne cruise, beachside stargazing and a lighthouse LED show.

MSC Meraviglia will offer guests 7-night itineraries from New York City to Florida and The Bahamas. Notable stops include Port Canaveral (Florida), Nassau and Ocean Cay (The Bahamas). Additionally, pink sand beaches and adventures await guests on 6- and 7-night itineraries to Bermuda.
