Coloured houses and palm-lined streets
Just 90 miles north of Cuba, Key West, in the Florida Keys archipelago has long been a fashionable vacation destination for vacationers seeking fun, sun and style. President Truman lived here, as did the writer Ernest Hemingway and visitors can visit his home, which is also a museum.
Key West city is the largest town on the island; conveniently, MSC cruise ships can dock in the centre so passengers can head straight for the town sights. Key West is a fun and vibrant town with a sunny, holiday vibe.
Colored houses, cute white picket fences, palm-lined streets, ‘gingerbread mansions’ and an array of zany yet friendly residents add to the laid-back ambiance.
Leave your luxurious cruise ship and join us on an excursion that takes in the island’s main attractions.
Nature-lovers and gardeners in particular will enjoy the tropical gardens of the painter and ornithologist James Audubon and the Key West butterfly sanctuary. Finish off the day by shopping for fun souvenirs and a Cuban-influenced mojito cocktail.
If you’re already familiar with Key West, we can also offer the best deals on day trips off the island such as a glass-bottomed boat tour, diving excursions or salt-water fishing.
With the island’s motto ‘One Human Family’, all visitors are always warmly welcomed at this exuberant and fun destination.
