While MSC does not currently sail from the United States, they do plan to base in a ship in Miami relatively soon (based on increasing demand). The world’s 4th largest cruise line will soon be making waves in Miami, and with US/Cuban relations warming, may eventually offer travel from Miami to Cuba.
