Biting the Big Apple

New York is the perfect city to start your MSC Cruise to the Caribbean, Bermuda, New England and Canada. Hidden gardens next to postmodern skyscrapers; priceless art tucked away in medieval-style cloisters; a revamped waterfront you can stroll along to take in the view.

Wandering through the patchwork of neighbourhoods is as great a thrill as any single sight. Frantic Chinatown edges stylish Soho, which is but a stone’s throw from the quiet, angled lanes of the once-bohemian West Village. Discover the city with a perfect espresso in a shabby-chic Williamsburg café or admire the city from a rooftop view from Chelsea’s High Line. 

New York City
officially comprises the central island of Manhattan and four outer boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. For many, Manhattan simply is New York; indeed, when your MSC cruise takes you to New York, you’ll probably spend most of your time here.
