MSC Cruises Will Offer Year-Round Cruises from Port Canaveral on 2 Cruise Ships

MSC Cruises, the world’s fastest growing cruise line, has announced plans to offer year-round cruises from Port Canaveral on two different cruise ships starting this November.

MSC Seaside will sail from Port Canaveral starting November 2020, marking the cruise line’s first cruise ship from the popular drive-to port, offering three-, four- and seven-night cruises.

Guests eager to sail from the sunshine state to the Caribbean and The Bahamas can experience MSC Cruises’ signature European style and enjoy increased flexibility with three-, four- and seven-night cruise options departing on Sundays and Thursdays.

MSC Divina will arrive to Port Canaveral in March 2021, also offering three-, four- and seven-night cruises.

With nearby access to Orlando, the city’s theme parks and attractions, guests can enjoy an extended stay before or after their cruise, with options of either a short weekend getaway, or a week-long cruise. Itineraries uncover hidden treasures of the Caribbean and The Bahamas, including stops at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve — MSC Cruises’ private Bahamian destination.

“Port Canaveral has always been an extremely popular port with cruisers. It is easily accessible, offers innovative and modern terminals and provides convenient access to many attractions in the surrounding area. We are thrilled at MSC Cruises to bring two of our modern and glamourous cruise ships, MSC Seaside and MSC Divina, to such a high-demand port for the first time, with sailings year-round to the sunny Caribbean and The Bahamas,” said Rubén Rodriguez, President of MSC Cruises USA. “As we look toward the upcoming year, we are eager to bring our guests back to sea when the time is right, with health and safety as a top priority, following guidance from national and international health authorities. We are also excited to expand our presence in North America with new and enriching cruise experiences.”

“We’re very pleased to welcome MSC Cruises to Port Canaveral and excited to be the homeport for the beautiful MSC Seaside and MSC Divina,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “This exciting new partnership is an endorsement of our commitment to excellence and the investments we’ve made in our cruise operations. We’re looking forward to working together with our new cruise partner providing the best possible experience for their guests.”


MSC Seaside and MSC Divina will uncover the treasures of the Caribbean and The Bahamas with itineraries to allow guests to escape with a quick weekend getaway or a week-long vacation under the sun. And, with MSC Seaside beginning sailings starting in November, guests can start planning their time together with a much-needed vacation for the holidays.

Aboard MSC Seaside, guests can choose from three-, four- and seven-night cruises starting November 2020 through March 2021, visiting George Town, Cayman Islands; Cozumel, Mexico; and Nassau and Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve in The Bahamas.

MSC Divina will replace MSC Seaside in Port Canaveral come March 2021, continuing her itineraries with a diverse set of three-, four- and seven-night cruises through November 2021, and visiting George Town, Cozumel, Nassau and Ocean Cay.
