MSC Meraviglia Sails into Newport as the Largest Ship of the Season

MSC Meraviglia has just arrived in Newport, Rhode Island, to begin her inaugural Canada and New England itinerary! The ship is set to visit destinations in Canada and New England after beginning her journey overlooking Newport’s gorgeous autumn scenery and historic colonial architecture. 

MSC Meraviglia’s inaugural visit to Newport is a great milestone for MSC Cruises as we continue expanding our presence in the North American market. When we launched year-round cruises from New York City, one of our goals was to allow guests to visit a wider variety of destinations, and Newport is a perfect example. The response to these itineraries has been strong, which means we’ll bring thousands of visitors to Newport this season. We look forward to continuing to work with leaders here to provide our guests with a distinctive and immersive cruising experience, ”said Rubén A. Rodríguez, President, MSC Cruises USA.
