Geneva, Switzerland – April 3, 2024  MSC Cruises revealed today that its newest flagship, MSC World America, will feature seven distinct districts, allowing guests of all ages to choose their own vacation experience and get the most out of their time onboard. Each district features its own atmosphere, facilities and adventures waiting to be explored—all of which will help guests experience a new world of cruising.

During her inaugural season starting in April 2025, MSC World America will sail from Miami with 7-night itineraries to some of the most sought-after destinations in the Eastern and Western Caribbean, with stops at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve – MSC Cruises’ unique private island paradise in The Bahamas.

Discover MSC World America’s seven districts:  


MSC Cruises’ signature ship-within-a-ship experience offers a private and secluded retreat. This guest-favorite makes up MSC World America’s seventh district with a world of privacy, exclusivity and luxury in a relaxed and elegant atmosphere.

Guests staying within the MSC Yacht Club will enjoy personalized attention, with 24/7 butler service, priority embarkation and disembarkation, exclusive lounge and dining areas, and more. MSC Yacht Club guests will have an exclusive escape from the rest of the ship, while still enjoying all the other amenities that MSC World America has to offer. 


Families can create memories that will last a lifetime as they dive into their own dedicated district of fun at Family Aventura, located on the ship’s top deck. Family Aventura is centered around The Harbor, a revolutionary new outdoor park where families can play together, grab drinks and snacks, and soak up the sun. The Harbor offers an exhilarating high ropes course and a state-of-the-art attraction that will be the first of its kind at sea, along with a family area and a playground modeled after the iconic lighthouse at Ocean Cay.

Family Aventura is also home to Doremiland, the action-packed kids area with incredible facilities featuring age-appropriate activities for everyone from babies to teenagers. The district’s nearby bumper cars, roller rink, high-thrill water slides and dry slide make Family Aventura the perfect place for families to vacation together.   


Relax and unwind at the Aqua Deck, the go-to destination for the ultimate pool day at sea. The ship’s two spectacular main pools are surrounded by a versatile pool deck whose mood changes throughout the day, providing a vibrant oasis for all types of guests.

Revitalizing wellness offerings and a tranquil atmosphere in the morning transition to an upbeat and entertaining vibe throughout the afternoon, followed by high-energy parties at night.


High up at the stern of the ship lies the adults-only Zen Area, an exclusive enclave for relaxation and rejuvenation. It is the ideal spot for quiet sunbathing and swimming with breathtaking ocean views.

Guests can unwind under the sun or stars by the twin pools and enjoy light music in a spot where tranquility meets sophistication.


This bustling district at the heart of the ship beats with excitement as guests navigate a sea of possibilities. Lined with dining options, exclusive shopping, and exhilarating games, the space is perfect for enjoying live music at the Dolce Vita Bar, afternoon coffee and sweet treats at Jean Philippe Chocolat & Café, and grab-and-go favorites around the clock at Luna Park Pizza & Burger.

Galleria also includes the MSC Luna Park Arena, a high-tech entertainment venue perfect for hosting themed parties and gameshows.


A night of fun is always on tap at The Terraces, with nine restaurants and bars, four retail shops and a comedy club that also serves up dueling pianos and late-night karaoke. This district blends avant-garde dining concepts with a range of entertainment options aimed at adults in a mix of indoor and outdoor venues.

Guests can start their day by grabbing a smoothie at the juice bar, browse watches and jewelry in the shops, and round out their evening with a delicious dinner in one of the five specialty restaurants, serving dishes from around the world. High-energy DJ sets and laugh-out-loud comedy will be available to cap off the night.


The lively outdoor Promenade is a vibrant space with spectacular views, framed by a spiral architectural masterpiece—the thrilling 11-deck dry slide. The Promenade features the authentic Emporium coffee bar with selections from around the world, lively evening activities, and drink and dinner options—all accompanied by the sights and sounds of the ocean.
