The MSC Meraviglia, the newest and largest cruise ship operated by MSC Cruises, has made its arrival to its new home in Port Miami and is set to begin Caribbean cruises this winter.

The MSC Meraviglia is one of the newest megaships to set sail in the Caribbean, weighing 171,598 gross tons and capable of carrying 4,488 passengers. The Meraviglia is the largest ship in the MSC fleet.

The MSC Meraviglia joins a number of other MSC ships, including the MSC Seaside, MSC Armonia, and MSC Divinia.

MSC Cruises is said to be one of the fastest-growing cruise lines in the world. The ships have European influence, but the company is hoping to expand its reach, specifically in North America.

MSC Cruises is set to expand its fleet from 17 ships currently to 25 over the course of the next eight years, this is in response to the growing cruise ship industry and demand. They are currently working on building a state-of-the-art double berth cruise facility in Miami, along with several other renovations being done by other major cruise liners.

The MSC Meraviglia will be sailing on two different seven-night western Caribbean cruises between November 10, 2019, and April 5, 2020. The ship will be stopping at ports in Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Belize, Mexico, the Bahamas, and Honduras.

So far, MSC has two alternating itineraries scheduled for the MSC Meraviglia, including a seven-night sail visiting Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, Mexico, the Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve and Bahamas. The cost per passenger staying in a balcony stateroom will start at $629. The other option involves a seven-night cruise visiting Miami, Florida, Honduras, Belize, Mexico, the Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, and the Bahamas. The price per passenger for a balcony stateroom on this trip starts at $639 per person.

Upon the conclusion of its inaugural season in Miami, the MSC Meraviglia is scheduled to return to Northern Europe for the summer of 2020. The ship is then set to return to the United States in October 2020 for three 10-night trips from New York to Canada and New England. Upon the conclusion of these trips, the MSC Meraviglia will return to Miami for seven-night Caribbean voyages again.
