MSC Cruises has indeed received approval from the local government to expand and upgrade its Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve cruise destination in The Bahamas. According to the Bahamian Central Bank’s Monthly Economic and Financial Developments report, MSC Cruises will invest approximately $100 million into Phase II of the project.
As part of the cruise destination overhaul, MSC will be adding new storm and drain management systems, entertainment areas, three new buildings for staff accommodations, a private yacht club, a solar farm, and other amenities. This is according to ENews.com.
Officials from MSC Cruises have also announced that the private island, Ocean Cay, will temporarily close from April 7 to May 22, 2024, to facilitate the construction. This closure will impact over 35 sailings across four ships: MSC Seashore, MSC Seascape, MSC Divina, and MSC Meraviglia.
In other news, MSC Cruises recently opened most of the itineraries for their 2024-25 winter season for booking. They are offering a wide selection of voyages in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Europe, and North America during this winter cruise season.
