MSC Cruises announced that they will be adding a second cruise ship to Cuba to meet the high demand for cruises from the Caribbean island.
MSC Cruises will be the first global cruise line to have a cruise ship in Cuba when MSC Opera arrives in late December in Havana. Due to high demand from European customers for cruises to Cuba, the cruise line will be adding a second ship, MSC Armonia in November 2016.
MSC Armonia will offer two different seven night itineraries from Cuba. The first will sail from Havana and stop in the ports of Roatan, Belize City, and Costa Maya. The second itinerary will have two nights in Havana, and then stop in the ports of Montego Bay, Jamaica; Georgetown, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico.
MSC Armonia is 65,000 gross ton cruise ship that has a passenger capacity of 2,087 passengers. The ship is currently serving the South American cruise market out of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
