They say everything’s bigger in Texas and MSC Cruises is ready and willing to develop a big, beautiful new homeport in Galveston. The cruise line is currently negotiating with Galveston Wharves to develop a fourth terminal that will welcome their luxury liners, giving your Texas clients an easier way to embark on an MSC Cruise.

“The prospect of developing a new homeport in Galveston is exciting because it represents a big step in our ongoing North American expansion,” said Ruben A Rodriguez, president, MSC Cruises USA. “Bringing our modern, glamorous ships to Texas would provide even more access and opportunities for guests and travel advisors to experience the future of cruising with MSC Cruises and our unique European style. We look forward to productive discussions with the Galveston Wharves as we chart MSC’s future in the U.S. market.”

The cruise line starts year-round service from New York City in April of 2023 and already has homeports in Miami and Port Canaveral. The family-owned company is currently the world’s third-largest and fastest-growing cruise line in the world and is quickly cementing a strong positioning in the U.S. market.

“Adding MSC to our family of cruise lines homeporting from Galveston would continue to elevate our status as a top U.S. cruise port and boost the regional economy,” said Rodger Rees, Galveston Wharves port director and CEO, in a press statement. “It also allows MSC to reach a new market of millions of cruise passengers in the Central U.S. We’re excited about the huge potential of this mutually beneficial public-private partnership.”
