DRINKS ON US OFFER^^ 22 Night Fly, Cruise & Stay Seaside Caribbean Cruise onboard MSC Seaside from Miami return including 14 day Southern Explorer tour from New York to Miami!

7 Night Cruise sailing from Miami roundtrip aboard MSC Seaside.

MSC Seaside will offer a unique cruise experience in total connection with the sea, fusing inside and outside public spaces. A unique waterfront promenade wraps right around the 323-metre ship, offering a plethora of places to shop, eat and sunbathe while panoramic lifts provide breathtaking sea views.

Highlights of this Cruise:

Miami, Florida
From Miami’s glitzy waterfront skyline to the elegant splendour of Miami Beach’s pastel-coloured art deco extravaganza, from the subtropical wetlands of the Everglades to a choice of stunning beaches giving onto the azure blue of the Atlantic Ocean, this all-American resort is a holidaymaker’s dream.

Take a tour through the world-famous Art Deco district of South Beach, the financial precinct of Brickell Avenue and the lush bohemian village of Coconut Grove. Miami’s year-round sunshine, its cosmopolitan ambience, dramatic glass-and-steel architecture and fascinating hinterland have made it popular as a holiday destination in America for people all over the world – and regardless of the season. The city’s fabulous skyline has also been popularised in a slew of major films and international hit TV series, perhaps the most famous of which remains “Miami Vice”. A cruise from Miami will showcase its great diversity - this city something for every Australian & New Zealand passenger.

If you're chasing some local cuisine, Miami stone crabs are scrumptous! Miami cruises will allow Australian & New zealand passengers to sample these sweet and delicious morsels, where you only eat the claws. But be warned! The shell is hard to crack, but the meat well rewarding.

The city’s long stretch of pristine beach is naturally a highlight in itself, with Haulover Beach Park at the northern end even allowing skinny-dipping – if you dare! So why not treat yourself to a cruise from Miami with MSC Cruises and set sail on an itinerary that includes stops in the United States? After all, life is for living and in Miami, the living is definitely good.

Ocho Rios
Ocho Rios is one of the pleasure capitals of Jamaica, it offers a gateway to fabulous sightseeing, excellent shopping and a good look into the Jamaican culture. Ocho Rios lies roughly 108km east of Montego Bay. It was once a sleepy fishing village, and although there are now resort facilities, international hotels and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, the town has retained the sleepy atmosphere of small-town Jamaica.

There are six shopping plazas to appease even the most devoted shopper and the Crafts Market is situated in the downtown area and is easy walking distance from the ship. The main flea market (Ocean Village), which sells everything under the sun, is in the center of Ocho Rios.

One of Jamaica's most wonderful sights is Dunn's River Falls. Ocho Rios also has a wonderful beach for you to enjoy. At the Shaw Park Botanical Gardens you’ll see a wide variety of exotic flora and canoeing up White River by candlelight to the beat of drums is a highlight.

Cozumel
Cozumel (Mayan: Island of the Swallows) is an island in the Caribbean Sea off the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. The main town on the island is San Miguel where most of the population reside.
The choice of activities are boundless in Cozumel, golden beaches, turquoise waters, friendly people, festivals, scattered Maya ruins, great restaurants, duty-free stores, diving, golfing and more. Famous all over the world for its coral reefs, there are plenty of water sports such as diving, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and more. The center of the island is covered by jungle and swampy lagoons. Chankanaab National Park is a Cozumel icon located at the southern tip of the island. It includes Punta Celarain and its historical lighthouse, as well as the Colombia Lagoon, a shelter for many of the island's endemic species.
