WELCOME TO OCEAN CAY MARINE RESERVE
Not only do MSC boast a stunning fleet of top of the range ships and world class itineraries they also have a private island, Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve. This island just south of Bimini is a slice of paradise waiting just for you. It provides a nice contrast to the business of other ports of call as this island puts the R's into rest and relaxation.
There are six golden beaches, a vast lagoon and the Bahamian atmosphere to welcome you ashore. If you're looking for a bit more adrenaline, then don't worry. Ocean Cay is home to a vast array of water activities. You can kayak, jet ski, parasail or paddleboard, plus you can snorkel in the Ocean Cay waters for the island's incredible wildlife. Once the sun sets you can gaze at the stars with their beach side stargazing. The island also boasts a beach dedicated to families, so your little ones can enjoy Ocean Cay just as much as you.
I know what you're thinking, all of this enjoyment can make you hungry. Don't worry, MSC have got you covered. The Buffet on the island specialises in top class cuisine with Bahamanian flavours, but the American classics can also be found in this sumptuous buffet. Scattered throughout the island are also food trucks, where you can pick up your favourite snacks and then get straight back to sunbathing.
Also on the island are six Tiki Bars, each boasting a unique theme where you can get your favourite cocktails or try something new. The island is also home to several bars that you won't find anywhere else! Make sure to check them out.
This wonderful port of call makes a delightful change of scenery from the other ports typically found on a Caribbean cruise.
