Rubén A. Rodríguez, the President of MSC Cruises USA, elaborated on the opportunity, saying, “Expanding our U.S. footprint makes our unique cruise experience more accessible to travelers in the central and western parts of the country and it illustrates our commitment to providing families in the region with unparalleled vacation options.”

The Seascape will begin sailing from Galveston on November 9, 2025. It offers 7-night cruises to popular destinations like Cozumel and Costa Maya in Mexico and Roatan in Honduras.

During their cruise, passengers can indulge in various activities such as shore excursions, swimming, snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, and spotting local wildlife.

The vessel will also visit Galveston Island, treating guests to its rich heritage, Victorian architecture, delicious restaurants, and gorgeous beaches.

MSC Seascape boasts 20 decks and is over 170,000 gross registered tons. It can accommodate more than 5,600 guests and 1,648 crew members. 

The Evo-class MSC vessel offers various entertainment options, like the rollercoaster ROBOTRON, a flight simulator, six theater productions, and six swimming pools.

Families with children will enjoy its sprawling play areas, which are over 7,500 square feet. After building up an appetite, passengers will have 11 dining venues. There are also 19 bars and lounges that offer outdoor seating areas.

For stunning ocean views, vacationers can check out the 1,772-foot promenade and the Bridge of Sighs with its glass floor.

The Seascape is sailing from Miami, Florida to the Bahamas and the Caribbean. 

Galveston has become a strategic and profitable home port for major cruise lines, including Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean.

Late last year, the Texas port announced that it was anticipating record numbers for 2023.
