MSC create exclusive Bahamian island for guests

Date Posted: 17 Dec 2015
It was announced today that leading Mediterranean style cruise line MSC Cruises will be creating their own exclusive island resort for their Caribbean cruise guests, with the help of the Bahamian Government.

In an extensive two year development plan estimated to cost around $200 million, the current cay will be transformed into a conservation resource enhancing the local economy. Work will begin in March 2016 and the island resort will be known as Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve.

The Ocean Cay project will be the largest island development by a cruise line in the Caribbean and an industry first for the marine reserve island experience. Covering 95 acres, it will feature some of the finest beaches in the world.

Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve is expected to be open from December 2017 and guests sailing on the inaugural cruise of MSC’s newest ship MSC Seaside will be the first to experience and enjoy the brand new destination. Notable features of the new island reserve include a purpose built 2,000 seat amphitheatre with live music and entertainment, many restaurants and bars offering local specialities, a dedicated family beach, an inland lagoon, thrilling zip wire and a wedding pavilion.

An exclusive corner of the island will also be reserved for MSC Yacht Club guests, featuring a luxurious spa and wellness centre with private bungalows.

Open from December 2017, guests can visit Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve on Caribbean cruises with MSC Divina, MSC Seaside, MSC Opera and MSC Armonia.
