MSC Cruises Largest Ship Departs Miami For The Caribbean

If you’re reading this right now then you’re in for a treat. Exclusively filmed and put together for Cruise Hive readers this stunning MSC cruise ship departs PortMiami.

The 4K Drone video which was made by Miami Drone Flights shows the famous views of Miami and the MSC Divina as it departing PortMiami on August 27. Even though there were no blue sunny skies the views and cloud breaks made for a fantastic departure for passengers onboard the 139,000 gross ton ship.

Raymond Barrett who filmed the ship and surrounding area gives a unique insight into using a drone:

Laid back images and moods make your eyes a liar as the drone battles the wind in a Gale. 35-40mph at takeoff, a little higher at altitude. More interestingly, The Awesome 4K Drone, was unable to make forward progress at altitude (when trying to fly toward 0 degrees). I stayed within that band for about a mile as she entered the Atlantic Ocean. The epic struggle against Neptunes breath really depleted the batteries. Even though, I was only a quarter mile away. The heavy winds made 30% seem like I was on absolute fumes, I caught it on the first landing attempt.

The MSC Divina was setting off on a 7-night Caribbean cruise which includes calls at St. Maarten, San Juan and Nassau. The ship is scheduled to arrive back at its homeport in Miami on September 3. The vessel is sailing out of the busy cruise port year-round and is part of the cruise lines North American expansion plans.

MSC Divina is currently the largest ship in the fleet along with sister ship MSC Preziosa. The ships can carry 3,500 guests at double occupancy and first began sailing from North America in 2014.
