PortMiami is the Cruise Capital of the World and there are now three exciting new options for cruises to the Caribbean from the port. From Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas to Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, here are the new mega cruise ships that are now sailing from Miami.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest and largest cruise ship, Norwegian Encore features the longest go-kart track at sea. The cruise ship offers 29 dining and drink venues and is the final Breakaway Plus class ship from the cruise line.
Norwegian Encore has far more than a go-kart track. The cruise ship also has the largest outdoor laser tag arena (themed after the Lost City of Atlantis) at nearly 10,000 square feet with the addition of augmented reality elements; and new immersive escape room and interactive theatre experiences in the 10,000-square-foot Galaxy Pavilion.
Norwegian Encore is sailing seven night cruises to the Eastern Caribbean from Miami. View Prices on Cruises on Norwegian Encore
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas
The world’s first true mega cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas is fresh off of a $165 million renovation that saw many new features added to the vessel. The cruise ship redefined cruising when the vessel debuted 10 years ago and ushered in an era of larger ships.
New features added to the ship include a 10 story slide, a trio of waterslides, a reimagined pool deck, new BBQ restaurant, Playmaker’s Sports Bar, robotic bartenders, a new escape room, and glow in the dark laser tag.
Oasis of the Seas will offer seven night cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Miami. Both itineraries will visit the cruise line’s private destination in Labadee. View Prices on Oasis of the Seas
MSC Meraviglia is the latest cruise ship from MSC Cruises to sail from North America as the cruise line continues its rapid expansion.
The cruise ship’s two-story Mediterranean-style promenade is lined with a variety of shops and specialty restaurants — including HOLA! Tapas Bar and Ocean Cay, restaurants by two Michelin-starred Spanish chef Ramón Freixa, and Jean-Philippe Chocolat & Café, an open fronted chocolate atelier by world-renowned pastry chef, Jean Philippe Maury.
Entertainment is available around-the-clock with enriching activities for all ages. In addition to six different full-scale theatrical productions every night in the main theater, guests are also able to enjoy two distinct Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows, VIAGGIO and SONOR — created exclusively for MSC Meraviglia in a purpose-built entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge.
MSC Meraviglia is sailing seven night cruises to the Western Caribbean on two different itineraries. Both itineraries will visit the cruise line’s new island in the Bahamas, Ocean Cay. View Prices on Cruises on MSC Meraviglia
