IMPORTANT – MSC Divina statement
Hurricane Irma has now been elevated to Category 5 and is strongly affecting ship operations across the entire Caribbean region. The state of emergency has been called across all of Florida and a number of islands in the area.
Due to these extraordinary circumstances, as the safety of our Guests and Crew is our number one priority, MSC Divina will now head directly to Miami where she will arrive in the morning of Thursday 7 September (Miami time), ahead of the Port’s likely closure on Friday, to allow guests who wish to disembark to do so. As soon as the disembarkation is completed, the ship will sail to Cozumel (Mexico), beyond Irma’s reach, allowing those guests that wish to remain on board to continue their cruise. She will then stay alongside there until it is safe for her to return to Miami.
Due to the timing of Irma’s likely arrival to the South Florida coast, it will be impossible to complete the turnaround operation scheduled for Saturday, 9 September. For this reason, we have taken the difficult decision of cancelling MSC Divina’s next cruise originally scheduled to sail on that day.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and are doing all we can to guarantee the safe passage of our clients in the event of this emergency.
