MSC Cruises’ newest flagship, MSC World America, will feature ‘seven distinct districts’ when it debuts at its homeport in Miami, Florida, in April 2025. 

The seven districts will offer passengers a range of tailored experiences, bars, restaurants, entertainment, and leisure facilities, all designed for passengers to “create a one-of-a-kind holiday that is uniquely theirs”, according to the cruise line. 

Situated on the foredecks of the cruise ship, the MSC Yacht Club will be a ship-within-a-ship complex for passengers with keycard-only access. Passengers with this exclusive access will benefit from priority embarkation and disembarkation, 24-hour butler service, access to an exclusive lounge and dining areas, and many other perks.  

The Family Aventura district has been designed for multigenerational use and will offer bumper cars, roller rinks, water slides and a dry slide, as well as Doremiland, with facilities developed for children of all ages, from babies to teenagers. The district also features The Harbour, an outdoor park with a high ropes course, family dwelling area and a playground modelled after the lighthouse at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC Cruises’ private island in The Bahamas. MSC Cruises will soon reveal details of an additional attraction that has “never before seen at sea”. 

Home to the ship’s two main pools, the Aqua Deck will be “a chameleon of a space”, says MSC Cruises. In the mornings, it will be a tranquil space for wellness activities and in the afternoons it will host an array of entertainment, while high-energy parties will be the highlight in the evenings. 

The adults-only Zen Area at the stern of the ship will be where “tranquillity meets sophistication”, offering space for sunbathing, drinking cocktails and taking in panoramic views while light music plays in the background. 

Located in the heart of the ship, the Galleria will include exclusive shopping boutiques, high-tech entertainment in the MSC Luna Park Arena, and an array of dining options with bars, lounges and cafes. Notable venues will include the Dolce Vita Bar, Jean Philippe Chocolat & Café, and Luna Park Pizza & Burger. 

The Terraces, which will be spread across both indoor and outdoor spaces on Decks 7 and 8, will feature nine restaurants and bars, four retail shops and a comedy club that will also serve as a late-night karaoke bar.  

The Promenade on Deck 8 will boast a view that extends to the top of the ship and will be framed by the central spiral 11-deck-high dry slide.  

MSC World America, which will run on LNG and be equipped with shore power connectivity, will spend its inaugural season sailing seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from PortMiami.
