MSC Cruises is continuing its U.S. expansion by announcing plans to homeport five vessels in the country by the end of 2023.


The new MSC Seascape will lead the way with seven-night eastern and western Caribbean voyages following her inaugural sailing from Miami later this year.

She will be joined in Miami by MSC Divina, which will offer a variety of itineraries from three-night Bahamas cruises to 11-night journeys through Central and South America.

MSC Meraviglia will also sail from PortMiami, offering shorter cruises to the Bahamas and Key West.

MSC Seashore will sail from Florida’s Port Canaveral, offering a mix of short cruises to the Bahamas and seven-night western Caribbean sailings. This will be the first time one of MSC’s Seaside EVO class vessels sails from Port Canaveral.

New York City

From the Big Apple, MSC Meraviglia will sail to Bermuda, Florida, and the Bahamas after completing her inaugural summer season in the northeast with a series of cruises to both Florida and the Bahamas, as well as to Canada and New England. Bahamas voyages will include a stop at the cruise line’s private island Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.

“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,” said Rubén A. Rodríguez, President, MSC Cruises USA. “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. Caring for the ocean and showing our guests the true extent of its wonders drives everything we do at MSC Cruises.”
