This will follow an extensive drydock refresh of the ship.
Short sailings, followed by a weeklong itinerary
MSC Armonia’s first departure from Port Tampa Bay will be on Nov. 1 next year for a four-night mini cruise to Cozumel. The ship will offer four- to five-night sailings for the 2020/21 winter season and then, starting in May, weeklong cruises in summer 2021.
All cruises will visit Bahamas private island
A highlight of all the itineraries will be Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, the company’s new private island destination in the Bahamas set to open this November. The new deployment will also feature MSC Cruises’ partnership with US home and lifestyle expert Martha Stewart, including exclusive culinary and discovery experiences on board and ashore.
Besides Cozumel ond Ocean Cay, destinations will include Key West, Costa Maya and Progreso.
Passengers have the option to book back-to-back cruises with new destinations on each sailing, extending their voyage to nine or 10 nights.
Four ships stateside
MSC Meraviglia will join MSC Seaside, MSC Divina and MSC Armonia in North America this winter, making four ships in this market for the first time.
