Post Hurricanes, MSC Cruises Updates Caribbean Sailings


MSC Cruises will sail alternative Caribbean itineraries on Divina, Fantasia and Seaside in light of the damage done by hurricanes Maria and Irma.

Divina’s Sept. 30 and Oct. 14 and 28 itineraries from Miami will now no longer call at Philipsburg, St. Maarten and San Juan. Instead, it will sail an itinerary that includes Montego Bay, George Town, Costa Maya, and Nassau.

Then, starting with its Nov. 11 sailing, Divina will call on St. John instead of St. Maarten.

On Fantasia’s seven-night sailings starting Nov. 25, the ship will now call at La Romana in the Dominican Republic instead of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. It will also skip Roseau, Dominica instead calling at Basseterre in St. Kitts & Nevis and St. Maarten, replaced with a day at sea.

Seaside, starting Dec. 23, will now call at St. John instead of Philipsburg, St. Maarten.
