Sharing is caring!

Since MSC World Europa set sail in late 2022, many cruisers wondered when MSC would release a World-Class cruise ship for the North American market. Fast-forward to present times, and MSC has announced that the MSC World America will join its North American fleet in spring 2025.

There’s no denying that the MSC World America is one of the most exciting new cruise ships that will be released in 2025. Featuring an innovative design, exciting activities, and a wide variety of entertainment venues, avid cruisers have a lot to look forward to with the all-new MSC World America.

With the success of World Europa we have a good idea of what to expect. However, there are still some surprises and new additions that have yet to be announced.

In fact, I had the opportunity to get an insiders look at MSC World America during the recent Seatrade Cruise Global Conference in Miami.

Things To Look Forward To On MSC World America

MSC World America Features Dedicated “Districts”

The MSC World America will feature seven districts. While some of these areas may resemble places on other MSC cruise ships, labeling them as “districts” makes it easier for passengers to make the most of their time onboard.

Here are the 7 districts on MSC World America:

Aqua Deck

The Aqua Deck is the perfect district to unwind, relax, and enjoy a pool day at sea. On the Aqua Deck, cruise passengers will find two main pools, surrounded by a pool deck with lounge chairs.

In the mornings, the Aqua Deck will have a relaxed and quiet vibe. Throughout the afternoon, upbeat music will play, and in the evenings, there will be high-energy parties.

Zen Area

The Zen Area is located at the stern of the ship. This adult-only area is ideal for rejuvenation and relaxation. This district is perfect for taking in the sun and enjoying breathtaking ocean views.

Family Aventura

Located on deck 19 and 20 the Family Aventura is the dedicated area for families to create lifelong memories.

This district is centered around the Harbor, a new outdoor park where families can eat snacks, drink, and play together under the sun. It also has a ropes course, a playground, and Doremiland, a kids’ play area.

The Family Aventura also features the MSC SportsPlex, which allows cruise passengers to enjoy bumper cars, a roller rink, and a sports court. There are also water slides and a dry slide, making the family Aventura the ideal district for families cruising together.

The Galleria

The Galleria is located in the heart of the ship. Here, you will find stores to shop in, various restaurants, and games and activities. This is the ideal district for enjoying live music, grabbing a coffee, or grabbing a bite at Luna Park Pizza & Burger.

One of the highlights of the Galleria is the MSC Luna Park Arena. This is a high-tech entertainment venue where themed parties and gameshows will take place.


The Promenade district is one of the most beautiful areas on any cruise ship at sea. This vibrant area offers spectacular views, the Venom Drop dry slide, and various dining and bar options.

Activities will take place on the Promenade throughout the day and evenings. This stunning area is very popular on the MSC World Europa, so we’re eager to experience it on the MSC World America.

MSC Yacht Club

The MSC Yacht Club is the ideal choice for passengers looking to have an enhanced cruise experience. This guest-favorite is an exclusive area for Yacht Club members only.

Here, cruise passengers can enjoy privacy in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere. Furthermore, Yacht Club guests will have access to 24/7 butler service, exclusive lounges and dining areas, and priority embarkation and disembarkation.

When cruise passengers stay in the Yacht Club, they will have access to an exclusive escape from the rest of the ship while still enjoying what MSC World America has to offer.

MSC World America Activities

MSC World America features a variety of amazing activities, from the Venom Drop dry slide to indoor roller skating and bumper cars in the MSC SportsPlex to the all-new Cliffhanger swing.

The Cliffhanger is a thrill ride that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible on a cruise ship. For the first time ever, MSC will have a large swing ride that suspends passengers 160-feet above the ocean.

This brand-new MSC cruise ship also has a kids’ club, a teens’ club, and even a Lego room. Onboard the MSC World America, you will also find water slides, an arcade, a ropes course, and other fun activities.

Furthermore, the MSC World America is equipped with three stunning pool areas. La Plage is the main pool, and there are two adult-only pools called the Botanic Garden Pool and Zen Pool.

Overall, the MSC World America is going to be a fun cruise ship for cruisers of all ages. With beautiful pool areas, innovative activities, and exciting thrill rides, this cruise ship has something for everyone.

MSC World America Entertainment

Onboard MSC World America, you’ll find three entertainment venues with brand new theater shows and live entertainment. Guests of all ages will be able to enjoy the wide variety of amazing live shows and entertainment.

Passengers will be able to experience concert-style shows in the Luna Park Arena. The World Theater will feature full-scale theater productions, and the Panorama Lounge offers four themed experiences.

Furthermore, surprise pop-up live exhibits will be happening around the ship for guests to enjoy!

MSC World America Dining Venues and Bars

The MSC World America will feature 13 delicious dining venues, including 6 incredible specialty restaurants.

This brand new ship will have two buffets, four main restaurants, and fast food outlets located around the cruise ship. The specialty restaurants include Butcher’s Cut, Hola! Tacos & Cantina, Kaito Tepanyaki Grill and Sushi Bar.

On our recent trip on the MSC Seascape we had the chance to try Butcher’s Cut and Hola! Tacos & Cantina. These restaurants offered an enhanced dining experience, and they made our cruise vacation extra special.

We look forward to trying these amazing restaurants when we sail on the MSC World America.

MSC’s newest ship will also feature 20 bars, lounges and cafes. These venues include Elixir Mixology Bar, Emporium Coffee Bar, The Gin Project, and Master of the Sea Pub.

This cruise ship will also have a sports bar and other unique venues that are yet to be announced.

The MSC World America is powered by Liquid Natural Gas (LNG), one of the cleanest marine fuels available at scale worldwide. MSC has prioritized implementing the latest technologies on their newest ship to reduce their impact on the environment.

In partnership with the Chantiers de L’Atlantique shipyard in France, MSC World America features an innovative hull shape designed to minimize water resistance.

World America features a wide range of technologies that optimize energy use across the cruise ship. These include advanced air conditioning, “smart” ventilation systems, and energy recovery loops, which help disrupt cold and heat throughout the vessel.

Furthermore, MSC’s newest cruise ship uses LED lighting, controlled by a “smart” management system, which is an effective and efficient way to save energy.

MSC World America Itineraries

Since December 2022, MSC World Europa has been sailing around the Mediterranean, and many cruisers have been wanting an MSC World-Class ship to sail in North America. Beginning in Spring 2025, the MSC World America will be sailing in the Caribbean, which is ideal for a North American market.

The MSC World America will begin sailing on April 12th, 2025, and will do a seven-day Caribbean Voyage. The brand new World Class ship will be leaving out of Miami, and it will visit Puerto Plata, San Juan, and Ocean Cay Marine Reserve.
