MSC guests will be able to experience brand new Cirque du Soleil shows created exclusively for MSC Cruises guests aboard the cruise line’s next-generation Meraviglia ships.

The cruise company along with Cirque du Soleil is together building a completely custom-made, latest-technology dining and entertainment venue —the first of its kind at sea — for MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia ships. MSC Cruises guests will be able to enjoy brand new, exclusive Cirque du Soleil shows, six nights a week, two performances per night – all while enjoying an extraordinary MSC Cruises culinary experience.

The specially-designed venue is a custom-built entertainment and dining Aft theater equipped with the latest technology and is perfect for an immersive Cirque du Soleil experience.  The 10,760 sq. ft. 450-seat venue will feature a 200-seat dining area so that guests can enjoy an exquisite dinner or drinks before the performance. Shows and related dining options will be available only to MSC Cruises guests aboard the four next-generation Meraviglia project ships, the first of which – MSC Meraviglia – is set to sail its inaugural season in the Mediterranean in June 2017.

“MSC Cruises is a company built on innovation, from the unique, prototype ships we design and build to the on-board experiences we conceive and create,” said  Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC Cruises. “Together with our newest world-class partner, Cirque du Soleil, we imagined and are now designing a totally new, live entertainment experience exclusively for our guests; an original show in a multimillion-dollar custom-built venue aboard a ship we designed ourselves, down to the last detail. It’s this commitment to innovation, and the vision and creativity that only a family-owned company can apply, that make MSC Cruises so distinct.”
