MSC Cruises, the world’s largest privately-owned cruise company, released a new video of its exclusive Bahamian island destination, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, ahead of its first guests arriving this November.

The new video brings viewers along for a detailed look at what guests can look forward to while visiting the island, which is exclusive to MSC Cruises’ passengers as part of itineraries in the Caribbean region.

Located just 65 miles from the coast of Miami, Florida, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve is a previous industrial sand extraction site that has been restored to a pristine piece of land in the Bimini chain of islands in the western Bahamas. The 120-square-acre restored island is surrounded by a 64-square-mile marine reserve and four smaller cays.

The destination will be open to the public starting Nov. 9. The private island and marine reserve will immerse guests in the natural beauty of white sand beaches, beautiful blue water, and lush Bahamian greenery. They can seamlessly pass directly between the ship and island throughout the day and evening to take advantage of all of the facilities available onboard and ashore.

From November 2019, all MSC cruises sailing from Miami will call at Ocean Cay as part of the Caribbean itineraries.

According to the cruise line, Ocean Cay is founded on a deep commitment to ecological principles – beliefs that shape everything from how venues are built, to how the island is run, to the kinds of activities featured on the island. One of the priorities for MSC Cruises on Ocean Cay is the restoration of the coral. An integral part of the marine ecosystem, coral needs to be protected, as it ensures biodiversity, provides a habitat for marine life, and protects coastlines.
