Fort Lauderdale was put on “Diva Watch” at the annual travel industry cruise3sixty conference this morning as it was announced that the upcoming 3,502-passenger MSC Divina will be homeported in Miami Fall 2013 to May 2014.
When MSC Cruises begins its inaugural season homeporting at PortMiami, MSC Divina, which becomes the twelfth ship in the MSC Cruises fleet in May 2012, will sail a series of itineraries featuring Caribbean destinations.
Named in honor of MSC Cruises’ “godmother,” Italian film icon Sophia Loren, MSC Divina features the exclusive MSC Yacht Club ship-within-a-ship concept found on the line’s two other Fantasia-class ships, MSC Fantasia and MSC Splendida. The ship will be christened on May 27 in
“We’re very excited to kick off our new relationship with PortMiami with the newest of our Fantasia-class flagships,” said Richard E. Sasso, President and CEO of MSC Cruises (USA), Inc.
“In addition to enjoying the sophisticated design, international entertainment, Mediterranean cuisine, exotic MSC Aurea Spa and international experience that are the hallmarks of MSC Cruises, guests will now have the opportunity to depart from Miami to enjoy the MSC Yacht Club private haven of luxury suites that previously had only been available on European sailings,” Sasso said.
With 1,751 staterooms hosting 3,502 guests (double occupancy) on the 139,400-ton ship, MSC Divina will be the largest ship in the fleet. Following her christening in Marseillie, France, the ship will spend the summer in the Med before heading to Miami.
