With just under four months to go until Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve welcomes its first guests, MSC Cruises has revealed more details of the experience.
The vision for the island is to immerse guests in the natural beauty of their surroundings in the Bahamas.
Ocean Cay is founded on a deep commitment to ecological principles – beliefs that shape everything from how venues are built, to how the island is run, to the kinds of activities featured on the island.
Work is underway to design opportunities for guests to learn about the protection of the oceans and the importance of preserving coral reefs through dedicated edutainment programs.
The Bahamas is renowned for its beautiful blue waters and white sandy beaches while the oceans in this part of the world are home to a special and diverse ecosystem that needs to be safeguarded for the future.
As part of the development of Ocean Cay, MSC Cruises is working to establish the roadmap for the restoration of marine resources, including habitats and species present in the area.
This will include the restoration of endangered corals, and the implementation of other conservation and educational programmes.
The island is situated within protected waters spanning 64 square miles but the ambition is to further extend this to ensure an even greater impact.
MSC Cruises guests will have an incredible opportunity to discover the wonders of the ocean in this special part of the world.
