changed the itinerary for the MSC Seaside to reflect the later opening
date for its private island near Bimini.
The Ocean Cay
MSC Marine Reserve had been slated to open in December 2017, but the opening
was pushed back until October 2018. The Seaside is due to enter service in December 2017.
On eastern Caribbean itineraries the new Seaside was to have visited St. Thomas,
Nassau and the reserve. It will now go to St. Maarten, San Juan and Nassau
between its debut in December 2017 and May. On western
Caribbean itineraries, it will visit Nassau instead of Ocean Cay, with the
remaining stops in Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Mexico unchanged.
said that the MSC Divina will substitute Nassau or Freeport and Martinique
or San Juan instead of Ocean Cay, depending on the itinerary.
Correction: Ocean Cay is scheduled to open in October 2018. A previous version of this report had the wrong opening date.
