MSC Announces a Third Ship for Miami

The MSC Seaside

MSC Cruises has announced that they plan to add a third ship to their fleet sailing from Miami.  The ship will be part of their new Meraviglia Class and is expected to arrive in Miami in 2019.

The addition of a third ship home ported in Miami will help solidify the European-based MSC Cruise’s efforts to break into the Caribbean cruise market and to establish themselves as a recognized brand in the American cruise market.
