Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Your Arabian adventure begins in Dubai, the world's fastest-growing global city with a vibrancy and a majesty all of its own. You’ll find all kinds of wonderful modern attractions here, including, at 2,722 feet, the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, plus cutting-edge bars and nightclubs, a man made island in the shape of a giant palm tree, and unparalleled shopping opportunities.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
In the space of a generation Abu Dhabi has managed to transform herself from small fishing village into the thriving metropolis of today. A dramatic skyline of modern skyscrapers and exquisite hotels provides a contrast with the mosques and bazaars of old that can still be found here. Take a ride out to Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park providing thrills and fun for all the family, or why not take a Jeep Safari through the sand dunes surrounding the city.

Sir Bani Yas, United Arab Emirates
On Sir Bani Yas, just like on the islands of Dalma and the six nearby Discovery Islands, an enormous nature reserve has been designated to species in danger of extinction, be they from the Arabic peninsula or from Africa. In particular, on Sir Bani Yas you will be able to observe rare animals inside a protected area where the great majority of the animals, including giraffes, flamingos and cheetahs to name just a few, live freely.

Background
MSC Virtuosa
Overview
MSC Virtuosa’s namesake comes from the word virtuoso, meaning someone highly skilled in music. Each deck will, in fact, be named after a different musical instrument. This new cruise ship will be one of the two largest in MSC Cruises’ fleet, along with her sister ship MSC Grandiosa. One of the highlights of MSC Virtuosa’s onboard entertainment will be the two brand new Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows*, created exclusively for MSC Cruises’ guests. MSC Virtuosa gives guests the best experience with its expanding digital offer, spearheaded by MSC for Me and our digital cruise assistant, Zoe.
