MSC Cruises From Miami for the Winter Holidays

MSC Cruises from Miami

Instead of staying home for your favorite winter holiday, go take a cruise.  And if it feels slightly Italian, all the better.  This holiday season, MSC Cruises from Miami offers new itineraries aboard three cruise ships, each decorated for the holidays with specially-themed activities from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.

For the first time this winter, there are three MSC ships cruising from Miami; MSC Seaside, MSC Divina and MSC Armonia.  Something unique – MSC Armonia will begin a winter season of cruises from Miami to Cuba starting on December 10, 2018 and will be the only cruise line regularly offering a 7-night program with two days in Havana falling over the weekend.
