This trip was booked in November as a quick girl's trip. We had never tried MSC before and they were offering great prices as they were new to the US market.
With COVID 19 just starting to hit headlines we weren't sure what to expect since other cruises were started to show cases and quarantines, but we decided to make a go of it anyway!
We flew in the morning of the cruise and arrived in Miami without any issues.We got to the port around 9:30. Check-in was a breeze, even with all the extra precautionary steps - such as them checking every single page in our passports to make sure we hadn't traveled to a banned country, and doing thermal scans of every passenger. I'd say check-in maybe took 30 minutes total. They never gave us a total headcount for passengers but I would say it only appeared to be about 50% capacity.
