MSC Launches Second Ship In Cuba

MSC Cruises will base a second ship in Cuba for the winter 16/17 season- the European line announced today. MSC Armonia and MSC Opera will both operate out of Havanna.

Falling sanctions are increasing demand for cuban based itinerarys and MSC is moving fast to fill this gap. MSC Armonia will sail alternating 7-day trips out of Havanna focussing on typical western caribbean stops. They will also include an overnight stay in Havanna.

CEO Gianni Onorato says: “With no less than nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and a long-held tradition of hospitality, Cuba has all the makings of a top world cruise destination. MSC Cruises is honoured to be able to support the further development of this huge potential, and we’re very thankful to the Cuban authorities for their ongoing cooperation in this regard”.
