New ports join MSC’s Caribbean lineup

MSC Cruises’ MSC Opera and MSC Lirica will return to Caribbean waters in 2005-06 with new itineraries that feature port calls at two destinations in the Dominican Republic.

La Romana and Cayo Levantado are not often found on ‘typical’ Caribbean itineraries, noted MSC Cruises USA president and ceo Rick Sasso. Cayo Levantado is a small stretch of land off the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic in Samana Bay. Known for its white sand beaches and natural rainforest vegetation, it is also on the winter migration path for thousands of humpback whales.

La Romana on the east coast offers beaches and water sports, an artists’ village, wildlife and flora reserves, horseback riding and internationally renowned golf courses.

MSC Lirica departs Genoa Nov. 23 on a 17-night trans-Atlantic sailing that calls at Malaga, Funchal, Martinique, Grenada, Antigua, St. Thomas and San Juan before arriving in Fort Lauderdale Dec. 10. The ship’s inaugural calls at La Romana and Cayo Levantado will take place during the Dec. 10 seven-night Caribbean cruise, which also visits San Juan and St. Maarten. MSC Lirica will also offer 11-night ‘Deep Caribbean’ and Panama sailings, in addition to a six-night and a 10-night departure.

MSC Opera departs Genoa Dec. 27 on an 18-night trans-Atlantic/New Year’s crossing, calling at Valencia, Funchal, Grenada, Margarita Island, Martinique, St. Maarten, St. Thomas and San Juan before arriving in Fort Lauderdale Jan. 14. MSC Opera will call at La Romana and Cayo Levantado 12 times in 2006, sailing a series of seven-night Eastern Caribbean itineraries roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale that also visit San Juan and St. Maarten.
