VIDEO: MSC Cruises reveals detailed look inside private island Ocean Cay

TORONTO — Want to give clients a sneak peek of MSC Cruises’ Ocean Cay ahead of its debut this November? The cruise line has released a new rendering video of the private island, perfect for posting to social media channels.

The 1-minute video showcases Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC’s exclusive Bahamian island destination in the Bimini chain, as it will look when it welcomes its first passengers this fall.

The YouTube link with the video is:

The 120-square-acre restored island, located some 100 kilometres from the coast of Miami, is surrounded by a marine reserve and four smaller cays.

The first guests will step onto the island on Nov. 9, says MSC.

MSC is looking to ramp up sales from the Canadian market. The cruise line opened its first Canadian office – and the only dedicated office of any cruise line in this market – back in May.

Ocean Cay aims to immerse guests in the natural beauty of their surroundings with white sand beaches, beautiful blue water and lush Bahamian greenery.

In the video, viewers can see some of the island’s key areas including …

  • Many of the Island’s unique beaches including the Great Lagoon Beach: Located in an inlet at the center of the island, this is the largest single beach area and offers a haven with shallow crystal-clear water perfect for swimming and water sports.
  • The iconic Lighthouse: A striking 98 ft. tall landmark that is home to a Hemingway-style bar and a terrace where guests can take in the incredible sea view, have a cocktail, and enjoy live music. After sunset, guests can gather to watch a light show.
  • Seakers Food Court: A buffet restaurant that offers freshly prepared meals from a variety of international culinary traditions.
  • Ice Cream Parlor: An ice cream shop and café that serves a wide variety of ice cream flavors and coffee drinks, the perfect cool down just a short stroll from the nearby beach.

From November 2019, all MSC Cruises ships from Miami will call at Ocean Cay as part of the Caribbean itineraries. More details are at
