USA

The land of opportunity
The land of opportunity

The undeniable protagonists of the Caribbean Islands are their crystal-clear waters.

Undertaking a voyage to the USA, which includes these magnificent, uncontaminated locations, is a unique experience. Miami, the Bahamas, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are the stops of this excellent MSC cruise. You embark in Miami, Florida. A large, multicultural metropolis that has seen a lot of Latin influence over the centuries, its most photographed and visited location is South Beach. Fashionable locales, elegant boutiques, characteristic cafés and historical buildings: here, the past, the present and the future blend in an unmistakable mix of rhythms and frenzy. In the Caribbean Sea, Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the US Virgin Islands, is an enchanting location of luxuriously green hills, small pure-white dwellings, a sea rich in colourful fish and breath-taking sunsets, similar to the Bahamas, an island chain consisting of about 700 islands of pink sand surrounded by transparent waters north of Cuba.

San Juan, the populous capital of Puerto Rico, on the other hand, will enchant you with its skyscrapers and its old city encircled by magnificent buildings constructed during the colonial period.
