MSC Cruises

MSC offers cruises throughout the world. It is a privately held cruise line that stemmed from the historic MSC Shipping Company.

The cruise line has an amazing private island in the Bahamas called Ocean Cay which is part natural marine habitat as well as a fun beach experience for guests sailing on Caribbean cruises.

I have sailed on a few MSC Cruises and had a good experience overall. Each of them had their plusses and minuses but they offered a fun cruise. You can read about my experiences on MSC Meraviglia, MSC Seashore, and MSC Seascape here.

We also featured a guest review of MSC World cruise ship which is currently MSC cruises largest cruise ship.

Most recently, I had the pleasure of experiencing MSC’s luxury brand, Explora Journeys with a 10-night sailing on Explora I. It was an incredible experience. You can read about that here.


World America is currently under construction in France. The ship debuts in Miami at the new MSC Cruise Terminal on April 9, 2025.

The cruise line announced Cliffhanger an overwater swing attraction as a key feature on the new ship.

The attraction is one of a kind and is the only overwater swing on a cruise ship.

The attraction will be on the top deck and it will be the key feature of the ships family area.

MSC describes the attraction as follows:

“Cliffhanger’s four seats start off close to the deck before powered arms lift them into the starting position—up and out over the edge of the ship. From there, riders are propelled back and forth, high above the waterline and dangling 50m above the ocean below. The one-of-a-kind, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride will have guests feeling the wind in their hair as their view oscillates between the water below and the sky above.”

The experience sounds awesome and it will be a fun option on MSC’s flagship!

World America

The MSC World America offers seven-night Caribbean cruises beginning April 2025. The ship will alternate between Eastern and Western Caribbean options with stops at Ocean Cay on each sailing.

The ship floated out from the shipyard this past week.

World America is powered by Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) which will allow for lower emissions and is better for the environment.

The ship will have a number of environmental protection programs onboard the ship to conserve water and other resources.

Would you go on Cliffhanger, the Overwater Swing on MSC World America?
