When MSC World America debuts in April 2025, she will create an eye-catching profile against the Miami, Florida skyline. The new ship’s signature plumb bow will rise vertically from the waterline and her Y-shaped aft will open onto the impressive outdoor World Promenade. Overall, MSC World America will span 22 decks, measure more than 150 feet wide, and boast 2,614 staterooms. Guests can enjoy seven distinct onboard districts, each with its own atmosphere, facilities, and adventures.

During the inaugural season in spring 2025, MSC World America will sail from Miami with 7-night itineraries to 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 below.

Seven districts on board the MSC World America


Families can 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 Cliffhanger – the first ever over-the-water swing ride attraction, along with a family area and a playground modeled after the iconic lighthouse at Ocean Cay.

Family Aventura is also home to Doremiland, an action-packed kids area with incredible facilities featuring age-appropriate activities for everyone from toddlers to teens. 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 a pool day at sea. The ship’s two main pools are surrounded by a versatile 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.


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.

MSC World America is designed to help reduce the impact on the environment. The ship runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG), a lower-emissions fuel, and is ready for renewable energy sources. Shore power connectivity, where available, reduces emissions by allowing the ship’s engines to be switched off in port. Smart technology is used throughout the ship to ensure guests can travel in comfort while keeping energy and water use low. A robust onboard recycling program minimizes waste, and even the propellers are designed to reduce noise and avoid disturbing marine life.
