MSC Cruises

Refined style and welcome, in the best Italian tradition.
MSC Cruises

Founded in 1987, MSC Cruises is now one of the world's leaders in international shipping. The company emphasizes a strongly Mediterranean-influenced ambience on board its 17 ultra modern ships including the MSC Fantasia, MSC Opera and MSC Poesia. Expansion is the company's focus. Testament to this is its recent deployment of two brand new ships MSC Bellissima and MSC Grandiosa.

Fine food prepared by highly acclaimed chefs is at the heart of every voyage with MSC. There is a whole range of dining options on board from fine dining to buffet style. These are only some of the exquisite restaurants you will find: 'Eataly', 'Kaito Sushi Bar', 'Asian Fusion Restaurant' and 'Silver Service Restaurant'.

MSC offers over 2000 carefully designed excursions and custom made tours in 190 destinations and 73 countries around the world. The cruise company is also known for its fantastic entertainment: enjoy classical concerts, Cirque du Soleil acrobatic shows, Broadway- and Las Vegas-style theatre performances and much more. The company's partnerships with companies like Lego and Chicco mean that MSC cruises are ideal for your little sailors too.
