Long beaches and glamour

MSC Cruises shore excursions can be a clever option to see Miami. It’s a city of wildly diverse districts, jigsawed into a vast urban corridor from two technically separate cities: mainland Miami and the huge sand bar known as Miami Beach.

If you’re sticking to the most popular areas in Miami Beach and downtown, though, you can zip around easily by bus and on foot. During an MSC cruise in the Caribbean most people spend their time in South Beach, a fairly small area at the southern end of the sand bar, where you’ll find many of Florida’s leading art galleries, trendsetting restaurants, and much of its boisterous club scene. 

Heading north, Central Miami Beach was where 1950s screen stars had fun in the sun and helped cement Miami’s international reputation as a glamorous holiday spot. Surprisingly few tourists venture beyond Miami Beach, and so miss out on some of the most enticing parts of the city. 

Tucked away in the Miami-Dade Cultural Center are the city’s excellent history and art museums, while Bayside Marketplace is the staging post for boat tours of Miami’s most exclusive offshore keys. To the north sits the city’s buzziest neighbourhood, the strip of land along and around Biscayne Boulevard, known as the Biscayne Corridor; it includes the dazzling Performing Arts Center, the art galleries and showrooms of Wynwood and the Design District, and even the grubby but thrilling immigrant neighbourhood known as Little Haiti

The first of Miami’s Cubans settled southwest of downtown, just across the Miami River, in Little Havana. This is still one of the most intriguing parts of the city, rich with Latin American looks and sounds, though it’s less solidly Cuban than it used to be.

The land of opportunity
The land of opportunity

The undeniable protagonists of the Caribbean Islands are their crystal-clear waters.

Undertaking a voyage to the USA, which includes these magnificent, uncontaminated locations, is a unique experience. Miami, the Bahamas, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico are the stops of this excellent MSC cruise. You embark in Miami, Florida. A large, multicultural metropolis that has seen a lot of Latin influence over the centuries, its most photographed and visited location is South Beach. Fashionable locales, elegant boutiques, characteristic cafés and historical buildings: here, the past, the present and the future blend in an unmistakable mix of rhythms and frenzy. In the Caribbean Sea, Charlotte Amalie, the capital of the US Virgin Islands, is an enchanting location of luxuriously green hills, small pure-white dwellings, a sea rich in colourful fish and breath-taking sunsets, similar to the Bahamas, an island chain consisting of about 700 islands of pink sand surrounded by transparent waters north of Cuba.

San Juan, the populous capital of Puerto Rico, on the other hand, will enchant you with its skyscrapers and its old city encircled by magnificent buildings constructed during the colonial period.
