MSC Cruises to operate sailings from New York for the first time

MSC Cruises announced that for the first time it will base one of its ships in New York and operate year-round sailings.

The MSC Meraviglia will homeport in the Big Apple from April 2023 for year-round cruises to the Caribbean, Bermuda, New England and Canada. Many of the cruises from New York will visit Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve in The Bahamas.

The deployment is set to enhance MSC Cruises’ presence in the North American market by complementing the choice of ships and itineraries sailing from both Miami and Port Canaveral/Orlando in Florida and will give guests the opportunity to extend their holiday with a stay in New York either before or after their cruise.

Gianni Onorato, CEO, MSC Cruises, said, “New York is one of the most incredible and vibrant destinations in the world so by adding the city as a year-round homeport for MSC Meraviglia we are greatly enhancing our offering in North America. The itineraries will have a very strong appeal not only for our guests in the U.S but also for international holidaymakers and given the huge range of intercontinental flights to and from the Big Apple, these sailings will be accessible to guests from all around the world.”

MSC Meraviglia will offer a variety of itineraries ranging from six to 11 nights and sales open on March 10. Options are available for guests to book additional days before or after their holidays at sea to make the most of their stay.
