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.

Kids & Teens

As a family-owned company, no one understands families better than MSC. Just look and see!

All the luxury resort leisure facilities on board are included free of charge in your cruise, from the Aqua Park, Swimming Pools and Water Slide to the top games consoles (PS3, Xbox and Wii) forming just part of our club amenities. So kids and teens∘ can do just as they like without a second thought.

Even the high-tech gaming attractions∘ on board like our Virtual World and 4D Cinema attract only a modest charge for a special treat.

Children are always made to feel special, receiving a dedicated welcome from the Kids Corner in the port terminal onwards. Security bracelets are issued when you board, while beepers or DECT phones can be hired for a modest charge so you can keep in touch at all times.

A varied program∘ is provided for the whole-family with supervised activities, entertainment and social events tailor-made for four separate age groups in their own clubs. And they’re all free, too!
