MSC Orchestra sailed into New York Harbor this morning on its maiden call in New York City. The arrival marks a historic visit to New York City by a ship owned by MSC Cruises, the fastest growing and most modern cruise line in the world.

MSC Orchestra was welcomed by city officials. The ship will dock overnight at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal before departing Wednesday, May 6 on an eastbound transatlantic crossing to Copenhagen, where she will sail Northern Europe itineraries during the summer months.
