MSC Cruises changed the itinerary for the MSC Seaside to reflect the later opening date for its private island near Bimini.
The Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve had been slated to open in December 2017, but the opening was pushed back until May 2018. The Seaside is due to enter service in December 2017.
On eastern Caribbean itineraries the new Seaside was to have visited St. Thomas, Nassau and the reserve. It will now go to St. Maarten, San Juan and Nassau between its debut in December 2017 and May. On western Caribbean itineraries, it will visit Nassau instead of Ocean Cay, with the remaining stops in Cayman Islands, Jamaica and Mexico unchanged. 
MSC also said that the MSC Divina will substitute Nassau or Freeport and Martinique or San Juan instead of Ocean Cay, depending on the itinerary.
