MSC World America:When she debuts in 2025, she will be the second ship in the cruise line's groundbreaking World Class series, offering contemporary cruising in the Caribbean from Miami, as well as fresh, immersive, and distinctive experiences at sea.

MSC Virtuosa:is one the fleet's most environmentally advanced ships,  delivered in February 2021. She is the largest ship in MSC Cruises' global fleet, carrying a total of 6,334 people.

The smaller sister ships, MSC Meraviglia and MSC Bellissima, were the first two Meraviglia Class ships to enter service in 2017 and 2019. In 2023, another LNG-powered ship, MSC Euribia, joined the Meraviglia Plus Class fleet.

MSC Seaside (2017) and MSC Seaview (2018) redefine the rules of cruise ship design by combining indoor and outdoor spaces to connect guests with the sea like never before.
