MSC Cruises will base its 5,700-passenger MSC Meraviglia year-round in New York City for the first time next year.

From April 2023, the ship will sail six- to 11-night itineraries that include Canada, Bermuda and the Caribbean.

The cruise line has rapidly been increasing its presence in the US, with ships sailing from Miami and Port Canaveral.

Many of the cruises from New York will visit Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve – the line’s private island destination in the Bahamas.

MSC Cruises CEO Gianni Onorato said: “The itineraries will have a very strong appeal not only for our guests in the U.S but also for international holidaymakers and given the huge range of intercontinental flights to and from the Big Apple, these sailings will be accessible to guests from all around the world.

“We designed our mix of itineraries to take advantage of New York’s geographic flexibility, so that our guests can soak up the sun in the Caribbean during the spring and winter seasons, head to Bermuda during the summer or go north to see Canada’s natural beauty in the autumn.”

The programme goes on sale tomorrow (9 March).
