MSC Meraviglia – the first ship in MSC Cruises' Meraviglia class – has arrived at its new homeport in New York City. The arrival at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal marks the first time MSC Cruises has operated a ship to/from New York City year-round. This underscores MSC Cruises' presence in the North American market. In addition, the positioning is part of the growth concept, which also includes the increasing number of US ports of embarkation. This complements the extensive range of ships and routes from PortMiami and Port Canaveral in Florida. 

New York offers excellent flight connections for international guests. For those who want to fully enjoy the Big Apple, MSC Cruises offers Stay & Cruise packages with the option to stay in New York City for up to three nights prior to the cruise. Among the various hotels on offer are the Hotel Riu Plaza Manhattan, the Hotel Riu Plaza Times Square and the Park Central Hotel. As part of the package, guests can take a free walking tour of Manhattan. To round off the offer, hotel staff are available to book additional excursions, whether it's a city tour or a special evening excursion.

MSC Meraviglia's various itineraries, ranging from six to XNUMX nights, have been designed to take advantage of New York's prime location: guests can soak up the sun in the Caribbean in spring and winter, visit Bermuda in summer or visit the marvel at the impressive nature of Canada.

MSC Meraviglia routes from New York:

  • The Bahamas and Florida: 7 to 11 night cruises with destinations such as Miami and Port Canaveral in Florida, Nassau and Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve in the Bahamas, Cozumel and Costa Maya in Mexico.
  • Bermuda shorts: Beginning in August, guests can enjoy 5 and 6 night sailings to Kings Wharf, Bermuda. The ship docks here for several days, giving you plenty of time to explore the beauty of the island.
  • Canada and New England: Just in time for the fall Indian Summer, MSC Meraviglia offers 10- and 11-night itineraries calling at Newport, Boston and Portland in the USA and Saint John, Halifax, Charlottetown and Sydney in Canada.
