Brightline (soon to be rebranded Virgin Trains) announced today a strategic partnership with MSC Cruises. MSC Cruises is the official cruise line partner of Brightline. The partnership offers travelers a carefree, bag-free experience prior to setting sail in addition to a convenient travel option between West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale to PortMiami when traveling on the rail system.
Brightline will now offer special Train to Port bundle packages that allow MSC Cruises’ guests sailing from PortMiami to park their car, check-in and check their luggage at Brightline stations before boarding the cruise. Brightline will deliver riders’ luggage directly to guest staterooms on the ship. The packages will also include a Lyft ride from Virgin MiamiCentral station to PortMiami. Train to Port package fares may vary and will include train tickets, bag check, a roundtrip Lyft ride and parking services. To view and book Train to Port bundle packages, go to: gobrightline.com/traintoport/MSC. Packages start at $95.00 per every 2 passengers.
MSC Cruises currently operates four cruise ships out of PortMiami: MSC Seaside and MSC Armonia, which sail year-round; MSC Divina, which sails seasonally; and MSC Meraviglia, which will join the ships sailing from Miami this fall, seasonally. Guests sailing on any of the four ships can take advantage of MSC Cruises and Brightline’s new Train to Port offerings.
