MSC Cruises will add Texas homeport, sailing from Galveston in 2025

MSC Cruises is headed to Texas.

The cruise line’s MSC Seascape ship will offer sailings from Galveston beginning next year. The new homeport marks a continued investment in the American market , where the brand has been growing its presence in recent years. 

"Expanding to Galveston with the magnificent MSC Seascape is a pivotal moment for us at MSC Cruises and for our guests,” MSC Cruises USA President Rubén A. Rodríguez said in a news release . “Expanding our U.S. footprint makes our unique cruise experience more accessible to travelers in the central and western parts of the country and it illustrates our commitment to providing families in the region with unparalleled vacation options.”

Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning.

Sales for Seascape’s Galveston cruises opened Thursday.

The ship debuted in 2022 and is currently based in Miami. Seascape has 2,270 cabins; six pools; 30 restaurants, bars and lounges; and high-tech features like the robotic arm ride Robotron .

When will MSC launch cruises from Texas?

Seascape will sail its first cruise from the Port of Galveston on November 9, 2025. 

The line has been in negotiations with the port over a new cruise terminal. “MSC Cruises remains pleased with the ongoing negotiations surrounding the Port of Galveston’s future Terminal 16,” cruise line spokesperson Field Sutton said in an emailed statement. He referred further questions to the port.

“MSC’s announcement to open sales for the MSC Seascape is an exciting day for our port and our cruise market,” Rodger Rees, Galveston Wharves port director and CEO, said in an emailed statement. “It indicates how close we are to executing an operating agreement with MSC Cruises to bring this world-class cruise experience for the first time to Galveston. Once the operating agreement is finalized, we’ll announce the port’s plans for a proposed fourth cruise terminal at Pier 16.”

Where will MSC Seascape sail?

The ship will offer seven-night cruises to Roatan, Honduras, and Costa Maya and Cozumel in Mexico.

How much do MSC’s Galveston cruises cost?

Prices vary by sailing date, stateroom category, and other factors, but a seven-night cruise departing on Nov. 16, 2025, currently starts at $439 per person based on double occupancy, according to MSC’s website. The fare includes most food, drinks like regular coffee, tea and water, and more.

Watch: Huge explosion as Moscow shopping centre goes up in flames

Social media footage shows people running out of the Mega Khimki shopping centre in a northern Moscow suburb

tmg.video.placeholder.alt TnS5-0ZCw3E

A fire the size of a football pitch ravaged a sprawling shopping centre near Moscow yesterday, killing one person. 

"The open blaze was put out at 10.45am [07.35 GMT]," Sergei Poletykin, the head of the Moscow region emergency services, told Russian media.

Social media footage showed people running out of the Mega Khimki shopping centre in a northern Moscow suburb as the building caught fire and partially collapsed in a huge explosion.

Fire at the Mega Khimki mall in Moscow, Russia

Russia's Investigative Committee said it had information that one person had been killed and was clarifying if there were other victims. The fire has since been put out. 

The blaze erupted before the mall opened its doors to customers, engulfing the entire building of 183,000 sq ft.

The shopping centre is about four miles from Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport .

More than 70 firefighters and 20 fire trucks were at the site, emergency services said, adding that their work was hampered due to the design of the building.

More than 70 firefighters and 20 fire trucks were at the site, emergency services said

"Due to the collapse of the roof, the fire spread instantly to a large area," the Moscow region's emergency services said on Telegram .

Russian news agencies quoted sources in emergency services as saying that "arson" was suspected but state news agencies later quoted sources as saying that safety violations were more likely the cause.

Russia has seen a number of deadly fires at entertainment venues in recent years, some of which have been blamed on poor safety standards.

Last month, a fire killed 13 people at a bar in the city of Kostroma . A drunk man had reportedly fired a flare gun indoors but inadequate fire safety regulations caused the large number of deaths, authorities said.

In 2018, a fire killed 60 people in a shopping mall in the Siberian city of Kemerovo , while, in 2009, another blaze at a nightclub in the Urals city of Perm killed 156 people.

MOSCOW: A fire the size of a football pitch ravaged a sprawling shopping centre near Moscow killing one person, officials said Friday, adding that it had been put out.

"The open blaze was put out at 10:45 am (0735 GMT)," Sergei Poletykin, the head of the Moscow region emergency services told Russian media.

Social media footage showed people running out of the Mega Khimki shopping centre in a northern Moscow suburb as the building caught fire and partially collapsed.

Russia's Investigative Committee said it had information that one person had been killed and was clarifying if there were other victims.

"Investigators and forensics experts are on the scene," it said.

Emergency services said the fire in the suburb of Khimki was spread over 7,000 square metres (75,300 square feet).

The shopping centre is about seven kilometres (four miles) from Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport.

More than 70 firefighters and 20 fire trucks were at the site, emergency services said, adding that their work was hampered due to the design of the building.

"Due to the collapse of the roof, the fire spread instantly to a large area," the Moscow region's emergency services said on Telegram.

Russian news agencies quoted sources in emergency services as saying that "arson" was suspected but state news agencies later quoted sources as saying that safety violations were more likely the cause.

Russia, which frequently has a lax approach to safety rules, has seen a number of deadly fires at entertainment venues in recent years.

Last month, a fire killed 13 people at a bar in the city of Kostroma. A drunk man had reportedly fired a flare gun indoors but inadequate fire safety regulations caused the large number of deaths, authorities had said.

In 2018, a fire killed 60 people in a shopping mall in the Siberian city of Kemerovo.
