‘We are so thrilled to welcome MSC Meraviglia, a truly beautiful ship, to Québec City and Atlantic Canada as her arrival in North America marks another major milestone for MSC Cruises in this market,’ said Ian Patterson, country manager for MSC Cruises Canada.

MSC Meraviglia joins MSC Seaside, MSC Armonia and MSC Divina in North America.

On its first Caribbean sailing, departing from New York on Oct. 28, MSC Meraviglia will become the first ship to call at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC Cruises’ new private island destination in the Bahamas, on Nov. 9.
