MSC Cruises has unveiled its latest thrill ride: Cliffhanger, the only overwater swing ride at sea, set to debut exclusively aboard MSC World America when the ship enters service in April 2025. The ride structure will tower above the new U.S. flagship’s top deck, nestled in the heart of the ship’s Family Aventura district and beckoning thrill seekers who want a rush of excitement.

Cliffhanger’s four seats start off close to the deck before powered arms lift them into the starting position—up and out over the edge of the ship. From there, riders are propelled back and forth, high above the waterline and dangling 160 ft. above the ocean below. The one-of-a-kind, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride will have guests feeling the wind in their hair as their view oscillates between the water below and the sky above.

MSC World America is set to become MSC Cruises’ newest U.S. flagship when she is named at PortMiami on April 9, 2025. Guests will experience a new world of cruising as they explore seven distinct districts, each with its own atmosphere, facilities and experiences waiting to be explored.

During the ship’s inaugural season, MSC World America will sail from Miami with 7-night itineraries to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, all with stops at Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC Cruises’ private island paradise in The Bahamas.
