Upon arrival to its new homeport, the ship will offer seven-night cruises to The Bahamas and Caribbean with two different itineraries. The first, in the West Caribbean, calls Ocho Rios in Jamaica, George Town in the Cayman Islands, and Cozumel in Mexico. The second, in the East Caribbean, calls San Juan in Puerto Rico, Charlotte Amalie on the island of St Thomas, and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

MSC also highlights that every Caribbean cruise will feature a call to its private island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve. The island is surrounded by a 64 square mile marine reserve, and provides guests with the opportunity to explore the scenery, wildlife, and two miles of beaches. With MSC Seashore docking at the island from early morning into the evening, and sometimes overnight, guests can spend a full day enjoying the island with a variety of activities including stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, wave runner rides and more.
