MSC Cruises re-starts US sailings

MSC Meraviglia has become the latest MSC Cruises ship to return to service by sailing from Miami. 

The resumption of cruising from the US is part of the line’s global plan to have more than half of its fleet back at sea by the end of this summer.

The line’s initial restart in the Mediterranean a year ago has been followed by the return at sea of more ships across the Mediterranean and northern Europe, the UK, Red Sea and now the Caribbean from US ports.

MSC Meraviglia is on a four-night sailing to Nassau in the Bahamas and the company’s private Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, where the ship will stay overnight.

The ship will sail three- and four-night cruises and add seven-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries from September 18. 

MSC Divina will become MSC Cruises’ second ship to return to cruising from the US, with three-, four- and seven-night itineraries from September 16 from Port Canaveral, a new homeport for the Company. 

New flagship MSC Seashore is due to arrive to its new homeport in Miami on November 18, immediately following an inaugural season in the Mediterranean.
