MSC Cruises expands in Cuba

MSC Cruises, the first global cruise line serving Cuba since 2015, has introduced a second ship to homeport in Havana.


Having completed her Grand Voyage from Genua, Italy, MSC Armonia marked her maiden call as she arrived in Havana, joining MSC Opera, earlier this week.

The introduction of a second MSC cruise ship marks the continued expansion of the company in the region and will offer a greater choice of itinerary destinations as well as of departures to guests out of Havana.

Iteneraries start with either two or three days in Havana, allowing guests time to fully experience the city from the comfort of their cabins. As a result of the increased capacity, guests are now able to cruise year-round to and  from Cuba, both in summer and in winter.


Both MSC Armonia and MSC Opera recently went through a complete upgrade as part of the Company’s €200 million Renaissance Programme and they are now ready to offer guests unrivalled levels of comfort, service and entertainment. As part of this multimillion euro project, both ships now offers enhanced balcony cabins with stunning panoramic sea views, additional dining facilities extending the range of fresh and authentic food options, new entertainment space and an enlarged MSC Aurea Spa for guests wishing to be pampered as they sail.

Cuba and the Caribbean are the perfect destination for culture vultures as well as sun-lovers. The island is a one-of-a-kind cultural hub, offering a distinct mixture of traditions thanks to its rich heritage which is unique in the region.
