MSC Cruises will expand to Port Canaveral in 2021, while canceling planned seasons out of New York and Tampa.
MSC also said it has expanded its cruise operations pause this year through July 31.
In 2021, the MSC Divina will homeport in Port Canaveral, a first for MSC, offering 3-, 4-, and 7-day cruises on Sundays and Thursdays. The ship was previously scheduled to operate out of Miami during spring and summer 2021 and move to New York for the fall.
The MSC Armonia will move to Miami to offer 3- and 4-day cruises every Monday and Friday, instead of sailing a spring through fall season out of Tampa. The Armonia will join the MSC Meraviglia, which will offer 7-day cruises from Miami to the Caribbean departing every Saturday.
All three ships will call on MSC's new private island, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, in the Bahamas.
