MSC Cruises is set to return to the United States return following an update on border restrictions. The line welcomed a decision by the Biden administration to welcome fully-vaccinated travellers back to the US from November 8.
The brand described the news as “a tremendous boost” for European-based and other international tourists wanting to holiday for winter sun in the Caribbean. MSC Cruises has three of its ships sailing from Florida for the entire season, MSC Seashore, MSC Meraviglia and the MSC Divina.
The ships will welcome non-United States residents on board from November. From November 28, MSC Meraviglia will move to her new homeport of Port Canaveral, Orlando while MSC Divina will move to Miami offering a range of three-, seven- and 11-night cruises. Meanwhile, MSC Seashore will be based in Miami from November 20 following her official naming ceremony at Ocean Cay.
Gianni Onorato, Chief Executive, MSC Cruises said in a statement that the line have eagerly awaited the United States administration’s date to re-open the country for fully vaccinated travellers from many parts of the world that love to cruise.
He mentioned that the Caribbean is a popular destination for guests from across Europe and other regions of the world, particularly during the winter, and many more of them will now be able to fly to both Miami and Orlando to board the three ships that offer a range of different itineraries in the Caribbean, including Jamaica, Costa Rica, Mexico and our unique private island in the Bahamas, MSC Ocean Cay Marine Reserve.
