MSC Cruises becomes the official cruise line of the Miami Dolphins

Two champions are joining forces as MSC Cruises and the Miami Dolphins are forming a partnership offering a variety of distinctive and inspired experiences to Dolphins fans both on board and on the field.

In anticipation of the arrival of MSC Seaside to Miami, as well as the opening of a newly renovated and expanded cruise terminal for MSC at PortMiami, MSC Cruises and the Miami Dolphins have formed a three-year partnership through which football fans will have the opportunity to tailgate with fun activities at all Miami Dolphins home games at Hard Rock Stadium, rally the stadium with MSC Cruises before the fourth quarter and sail on an official Dolphins Fans Cruise.

“As part of a sharpened focus on the US market, MSC Cruises is gearing up to introduce the innovative new MSC Seaside to Miami, so it is only natural that we have decided to collaborate with an American institution like the Miami Dolphins, representing one of the most loved teams not only by Miami residents but also football fans throughout the U.S. and worldwide.”

– Robert Fusaro, President of MSC Cruises USA

The joint endeavor includes several tailor-made activations and engagement opportunities, providing Miami Dolphins football fans the opportunity to:

  • See a life-like version of MSC Seaside – guests can come “on board” MSC Seaside with a 12 ft. high, 14 ft. wide model of the aft of the ship and take a photo with Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders and the beloved mascot T.D. before kickoff.
  • Cheer during MSC Cruises’ Fourth Quarter rally – guests will hear the iconic cruise horn and watch Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders take the field with MSC Cruises flags.
  • Stay charged all day with MSC Cruises interactive cell phone charging stations around the stadium.
  • See their photos featured on the stadium video boards by submitting game time snapshots via social media and using #MSCSeaside.
  • Sail with Dolphins legends onboard MSC Seaside on a themed cruise on MSC Seaside in 2018.
  • Relish a rivalry game with MSC Cruises as MSC Cruises will be the presenting sponsor of the Miami Dolphin’s 2018 regular season home game at Hard Rock Stadium against New York Jets.

As part of MSC Cruises nearly $10 billion investment plan – which includes a total of 11 next-generation ships coming into service between 2017 and 2026 – the company is committed to strategically growing its presence in North America, with a strong focus on South Florida. Of note, the revolutionary MSC Seaside will arrive in Miami in December 2017 and be the first MSC Cruises’ ship christened in the U.S.

Built for warmer weather and featuring an innovative beach condo design, MSC Seaside will bring guests closer to the sea than ever before.

In addition to MSC Seaside sailing from Miami, MSC Cruises also will deploy MSC Meraviglia, its next-generation ship that launched in June 2017, to North America from 2019. As a result, in the company’s latest phase of expansion in the North American market, three of MSC Cruises’ newest, most innovative ships will serve the region: MSC Divina, MSC Seaside and MSC Meraviglia from 2019.


One thought on “MSC Cruises becomes the official cruise line of the Miami Dolphins

  1. Interesting, I haven’t seen anything like this since New England Patriots did a cruise on Celebrity and painted the gridiron on the Lawn Deck. Think that was a one-off though, so not formal agreement between the two. And Gronk had his charter party ship on NCL but that’s about all I can think of… Makes sense though, one is iconic Miami team and another a new iconic piece of cruise ship design to be based in Miami.
