Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC Cruises’ private island destination in the Bahamas, welcomes its first guests in November 2019. Formerly a sand-extraction site littered with debris, the island paradise will have eight beaches with crystal-clear water; Seakers Family Cove, a shallow lagoon with a beach for games and monitored by lifeguards; a complimentary food court; a spa; and evening entertainment, including a light show around the 98-foot-high lighthouse at the center of the island and a traditional Junkanoo parade, a Bahamian festival with colorful costumes, music and dancing. Guests can also enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling and stargazing. (msccruises.com)
