Msc Meraviglia has left the Port of Miami marking an important moment in the global plan of the shipping company. In fact, by the end of the summer, more than half of the fleet will return to overseas waters and beyond, after the initial restart of the Mediterranean cruises in August 2020 which was followed by the return to sea of its ships in the Mediterranean, in the North. Europe, the United Kingdom, the Red Sea and now the Caribbean from US ports.
Tens of thousands of customers have already chosen to spend a vacation aboard an MSC dream ship, thanks also (and perhaps most importantly) to the industry-leading health and safety protocol, now also available for cruises out of US ports. .
MSC Meraviglia is therefore currently underway for her first 4-night cruise visiting Nassau, Bahamas and Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, where the ship will stop for the night allowing guests to enjoy an extended stay and discover the new private island for the exclusive use of MSC passengers.
Named Best New Cruise Destination, Ocean Cay Msc Marine Reserve offers its guests more than 3 kilometers of white sand beaches in a 165 square kilometer marine reserve.
Msc Meraviglia will carry out cruises of 3 and 4 nights starting today and will add 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises starting September 18, 2021.
The health and safety of guests, crew and communities served by the ships are there top priority of Mcs Cruises. In line with this commitment, since last summer the Company has implemented an industry-leading health and safety protocol on board each ship, which includes the COVID-19 test upon boarding; regular crew tests; physical distancing; obligation to wear masks; enhanced hygiene measures and more. In the United States, MSC Cruises will accommodate both vaccinated and non-fully vaccinated guests on board, but with additional requirements for non-fully vaccinated guests.
In essence, the complete protocol was the key to the successful restart of the Company, tried and tested since August 2020, when MSC Cruises was the first major company to return to sea.
