Meraviglia a new delight in the MSC fleet
MSC Cruises is unveiling a spectacular new ship, named the MSC Meraviglia in 2017 and to celebrate it has an amazing inclusive meal deal to allow clients to explore this new beauty in style. The diverse range of facilities and services brings a unique cultural experience. This next generation ship will be spacious, at 331 metres long and offering over 5,000 guests a choice of a variety of cabin styles for couples and friends right up to large groups of up to 10 passengers to enjoy.
“MSC Meraviglia will be christened in France, in the beautiful UNESCO-listed port of Le Havre on 1 June 2017,” says Pierfrancesco Vago, MSC Cruises Executive Chairman. He also commented, “We chose a name that denotes the sense of awe and wonderment felt when you experience the ship’s stunning features, which only an MSC cruise, with its unique Mediterranean-style, can deliver.”
This triumphant ship will be home to the first and only floating classic and contemporary fine art museum at sea – another MSC Cruises industry-first. Exclusive world class entertainment will be offered on board the MSC Meraviglia, thanks to an exclusive partnership with Cirque du Soleil. Two unique shows will be performed in a purpose built Carousel Lounge each night, including the opportunity to dine before this unique show in this lounge.
These changes arrive after the previous year of success. Gianni Onorato, MSC Cruises Chief Executive Officer, said: “In 2015, MSC Cruises came out of another year of unprecedented growth that saw a 10% year-on-year sales increase, with 1.7 million guests having journeyed on one of the Company’s 12 ultra-modern ships.”
Enriched family entertainment is targeted to guests of all ages. A super amusement park will be suitable for the entire family. An Aqua Park will be perfect to cool down in warm weather. The Himalayan Bridge will be an adventure for the thrill seekers.
Comfortable innovative accommodations will prioritise guests’ needs, with 10 different types of cabins. An enhanced Yacht Club will be the ultimate exclusive luxury service. Multigenerational holidays can be accommodated, thanks to the modular cabins – which combine for multiple families.
12 food venues bring unprecedented choice, of fine and casual dining options. Diverse options will include a buffet, sushi, teppanyaki and a steak house.
The outdoor Mediterranean-style promenade will host a spectacular atmosphere, with an entertaining LED screen. Ice cream and crepes will be available from Jean Philippe Maury, awarded French chocolatier and pastry chef.
Elegant pools will host relaxation and entertainment. The main pool is inspired by Miami’s South Beach. An indoor pool will be opened when weather cools down.
