Earlier today, MSC Cruises officially announced that they will begin cruising year round to the Caribbean from PortMiami. MSC will start sailing from Miami this November with one of MSC’s newest ships, the MSC Divina.
MSC has cited their unprecedented growth in the cruise industry as the reasoning behind positioning a ship year round in Miami.
“The popularity of our introduction of MSC Divina to this market among agents and consumers alike has been nothing short of tremendous,” said Richard E. Sasso, President & CEO MSC Cruises USA. “We listened to their requests and are pleased that the vast expansion of our line allows us the ability to fulfill their wishes,” said Sasso.
This will be the first time MSC Divina has sailed from the United States and the first time the line has ever sailed from PortMiami.
“PortMiami looks forward to welcoming MSC Cruises and its newest ship, MSC Divina, this fall and we are absolutely thrilled with the news she will homeport with us year round,” said Bill Johnson, PortMiami Director. “MSC Divina’s 12-month schedule sailing from PortMiami will be a major enhancement to Miami’s year round cruise offerings to popular Caribbean destinations.”
According to MSC, the itineraries for the ship’s year round cruises will be announced shortly.
