MSC Cruises Updates Caribbean Itineraries

MSC Cruises has updated their Caribbean itineraries on three cruise ships due to the closure of a few ports from the recent hurricanes.

MSC Cruises remains committed to the Caribbean as a destination, with the continued operation of four ships over the next months, and the introduction of a fifth ship, MSC Seaside, from December. The company has been working closely with officials, governments and other entities in the affected areas of the Caribbean in order to make an appropriate assessment about both existing destinations and those being introduced. Additionally, it will continue to work hand-in-hand with relevant parties to monitor and assess on an ongoing basis the availability of destinations that are not currently accessible.

MSC Divina, on the three Eastern Caribbean itineraries departing from Miami on September 30, October 14 and October 28 and that formerly included Philipsburg (St Maarten) and San Juan (Puerto Rico), will now cruise the following Western itinerary:

  • Miami/Florida (USA)
  • At sea
  • Montego Bay (Jamaica)
  • George Town (Cayman Islands)
  • Costa Maya (Mexico)
  • At sea
  • Nassau (Bahamas)
  • Miami/Florida (USA)

Starting with the itinerary departing from Miami on November 11, on 7-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries, MSC Divina will now call at St John (Antigua and Barbuda), instead of at Philipsburg (St Maarten).
