MSC Cruises expands Ocean Cay experience in the Bahamas

New adventures await in the Bahamas


MSC Cruises is set to elevate the offerings at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, its exclusive Bahamian destination. New facilities include watersport-friendly excursion centers, a state-of-the-art dive and snorkel center, and additional dining options.

The highlight is the MSC Foundation's Marine Conservation Centre, designed to be a hub for marine experts, biologists, and students.

Featuring interactive pavilions, a lecture hall, and coral exhibition tanks, it aims to educate guests on marine ecosystem importance and the imperative need for ocean conservation.

In a green initiative, MSC plans to install a third solar farm, advancing its commitment to achieving zero greenhouse gas emissions at Ocean Cay.

The cruise line is also implementing an advanced wastewater treatment plant and extensive landscaping with native trees and plants for environmental sustainability.

As part of the expansion, new accommodation buildings will cater to the growing island staff, increasing from 150 to 280.

MSC's dedication to enhancing guest experiences led to the temporary closure of Ocean Cay from April 7 to May 22 for necessary improvements and to support the island's future growth plans.

Having transformed from an industrial sand excavation site to a thriving marine reserve, Ocean Cay has been a unique private island destination since its opening in 2019.

MSC Cruises plans to showcase its largest U.S. winter fleet during the 2023-24 season, with five ships, including MSC Divina, MSC Magnifica, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Seascape, and MSC Seashore, all making stops at the enhanced Ocean Cay.
