MSC Cruises was founded in 1988 and by the start of the millennium the company had embarked on a new-build programme – one which has taken the cruise business by storm. Today the company is the biggest privately-owned cruise line in the world. In tandem with this meteoric rise, the concept of cruising Italian-style has been introduced to a global audience who appreciate La Dolce Vita at sea.
With 16 ships, MSC Cruises specialises in Mediterranean cruising for Europeans. On these year-round cruises passengers hail from Italy, Spain, France and other Mediterranean countries. Further afield they operate cruises in the Caribbean, South America, Africa and the Arabian Gulf. Life onboard is quite laid back but there is set seatings in the main dining room, there’s also a range of speciality restaurants and the buffet serves some of the best pasta at sea. There’s an astounding range of evening entertainment – from Latino dance music to classical concerts, while a unique cooperation with Cirque du Soleil has created stunning aerial aerobatic shows. On the newer ships adrenalin junkies can sign up for a thrilling Formula One simulator experience or an awesome 4D Cinema ride.
Aboard MSC Divina, MSC Fantasia, MSC Preziosa, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Seaside, MSC Seaview and MSC Splendida the Yacht Club takes suite accommodation to new heights. In this private halcyon atop the ships there’s a range of accommodation including Deluxe Suites, Executive and Family Suites, as well as Royal Suites – all of which come with butler service and stocked mini-bars. Yacht Club guests also enjoy priority boarding, inclusive drinks, an exclusive restaurant with open dining plus the Top Sail Lounge. There’s also access to a private sun deck with a swimming pool, Jacuzzis and bar.
