MSC Cruises’ MSC World America will sail Caribbean itineraries during its inaugural season from April 2025.

The LNG-powered ship will sail from MSC Cruises’ new terminal at PortMiami, Florida, offering two different seven-night itineraries. Both will include visits to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve – the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas.

The Eastern Caribbean trip will travel to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, San Juan in Puerto Rico, and the Marine Reserve. The Western Caribbean trip will travel to Costa Maya and Cozumel in Mexico, Roatan in Honduras, and the Marine Reserve.

“MSC World America will be another major milestone in our North American growth story and a fantastic new experience for our guests, whether they’re local or visiting from different parts of the world,” said Ruben Rodriguez, President of MSC Cruises USA. “Our goal with this ship is to go beyond her long list of features with thoughtful touches that make each guest’s cruise experience unique and memorable.

“On board, they’ll find the elegant European design that’s a hallmark of our entire fleet, mixed with classic American elements and hospitality. We can’t wait to have our guests experience our next U.S. flagship.” Ruben added.

Restaurants, bars, public spaces and experiences onboard MSC World America will include The Harbor, an outdoor family experience that brings together an aquapark, high trail course, zipline, sensory play area and relaxation space with food and drink.

“We are very grateful for our long-term partnership with MSC Cruises and their commitment to providing a world-class experience to its guests, which are critical to keeping Miami-Dade County and on the cutting edge of sustainability,” said Daniella Levine Cava, mayor of Miami-Dade County. “This new ship will be able to use a greener source of fuel, which is a significant step towards our goal of making PortMiami and Miami-Dade County future ready.”
