Board the wonderful MSC Seashore in Florida set sail on a ten-night cruise of the Caribbean, calling at the Bahamas (including at Ocean Cay- MSC's exclusive Marine Reserve) and Mexico, before returning to Florida.
Port Canaveral, a departure port of an MSC Caribbean and Antilles Cruise, is located just 45 miles east of Orlando and is known for its Space Coast. On the Merritt Island peninsula you can discover the phenomenal Kennedy Space Center. Here the NASA’s space vehicles are developed, tested and blasted into orbit. Set up a bit like an Orlando theme park, the vast Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will enthrall anyone with the slightest interest in space exploration, with everything from enormous rockets and the history of the moon landings, to IMAX movies and a space shuttle launch simulation on offer.
While its pirate history runs deep, today Nassau, located on the island of New Providence, is the capital and commercial centre of the Bahamas and the archipelago’s largest city. As you arrive on an MSC Caribbean and Antilles cruise, take in Nassau’s charming colonial-style buildings and pastel-coloured wooden shops that alternate with Georgian-style structures. Founded by the British in 1670, Nassau stretches from the harbour to Bay Street, the main drag through town that is replete with shops, souvenirs, restaurants and entertainment. At Straw Market, where typical Bahamian souvenirs are sold, be prepared to bargain – it’s a tradition that is almost a duty.
Discover our new and exclusive Bahamian destination: Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve. Here you can spend a one-of-a-kind experience on an authentic Caribbean Marine Reserve, while connecting with the natural world, feeling the warmth of the Bahamian spirit and immersing in an eco-friendly environment.
Marine Reserve offers guests over 2 miles of white sand beaches to spread out and relax beside crystal blue water, and activities for all ages day and night. With docking right on the island, you can walk straight off the ship to one of the island’s multiple beaches where chairs, umbrellas and cabanas await. Spend the day snorkeling, paddle boarding, jet skiing and more, or for wellness and relaxation, visit The Spa at Ocean Cay offering beachside massages.
Is the sea your element? Do you never get tired of observing the perpetual motion of the waves? Let yourself get carried away to the Costa Maya during an MSC Caribbean and Antilles Cruise, an area surrounded by tropical beaches and boasting the ancient splendours of pre-Columbian civilization.

• Splendid Mayan ruins
• Wild animals and lush vegetation
• Exciting and fun activities in marine waters
An MSC Excursion will take you away from the hustle and bustle of modern cities to savour the calm and tranquility that today surrounds the ancient ruins of the Mayan cities.
In Cozumel, a popular destination of an MSC Caribbean and Antilles Cruise, everything seems unique and magical, starting with the Caribbean climate, the coral reef, the intense blue colour of the sea, romantic sunsets and even animal species, such as the fox and raccoon of Cozumel, the coral-fish frog and numerous birds which live exclusively in this territory.
MSC Cruises’ excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:
• The island of swallows
• Dense forests and wind-swept beaches
