The MSC Meraviglia arrived at Heritage Wharf in Bermuda on her inaugural sailing from New York. MSC Meraviglia is one of the world’s largest cruise ships and the largest vessel to dock at Heritage Wharf this season when measured by gross tonnage. MSC Cruises is the third-largest cruise line, with a fleet of 22 ships offering itineraries across the globe.
According to data from the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), her new Bermuda during 5- and 6-night itineraries from New York itineraries are expected to generate a significant economic impact with up to $11 million spent in the destination over the course of the season.
Rubén A. Rodríguez, President of MSC Cruises USA, said, “MSC Meraviglia’s arrival in Bermuda is a great milestone for MSC Cruises as we continue expanding our presence in the North American market. When we launched cruises from New York City, one of our goals was to allow guests to visit a wider variety of destinations. The response to these itineraries has been strong, which means we’ll be bringing thousands of visitors to Bermuda this season. We look forward to continuing to work with local leaders to provide our guests with a distinctive and immersive cruising experience.”
Minister of Transport, the Hon. Wayne Furbert JP, MP, said, On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, we extend a very special welcome to Captain Maurizio Ruggiero and his Officers, crew and the 5,179 guests on board the MSC Meraviglia. As we celebrate with MSC the inaugural call of the Meraviglia to Bermuda, we wish MSC Cruises much success in all that they have planned in North America in the years to come.” MSC Meraviglia
