If approved by the the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners later this month, MSC Cruises will have a new port to dock MSC Poesia for the 2013 Caribbean cruise season. The initial agreement will be for three years.

“We are very excited to join the impressive roster of cruise lines operating out of PortMiami and look forward to sharing MSC Cruises’ unique style of Mediterranean elegance, international cuisine and white-gloved service with more and more guests,” said Richard E. Sasso, President and CEO of MSC Cruises (USA), Inc.
PortMiami Director Bill Johnson said the new MSC service will strengthen Miami’s offerings of luxury cruise brands. PortMiami, known worldwide as the Cruise Capital of the World, handled more than four million passengers in fiscal year 2011, more than any other cruise port in the world.
“MSC brings another prestigious cruise brand to PortMiami’s distinctive line-up of ships,” Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said.  “We are eager to welcome MSC to our Port.”
