Best Entertainment at Sea
Recently awarded “best entertainment at sea” by Porthole magazine, MSC Cruises is the master of spectacular entertainment from jaw-dropping, full-scale productions such as Wonderland — a lavish show with acrobats, dancers and singers, a show dedicated to Michael Jackson to a soul-stirring Frank Sinatra tribute. There’s also classical entertainment performed by opera singers and ballet dancers. And after dark, the ships’ stylish bars and lounges come alive with Caribbean music, Latin dances, classical recitals and sing-alongs.
MSC Yacht Club Experience
MSC takes it to the next level by not only having mastered the quintessential cruise experience; they have also brilliantly come up with an “exclusive sanctuary of luxury” concept that allows guests to truly escape into pure bliss while cruising. Most MSC ships generally hold more than 4,000 guests; however, the MSC Yacht Club is exclusive to only 142 discerning passengers.
MSC Yacht Club guests have access to all the amenities the larger cruise ships have to offer, but can choose to relax in complete serenity whenever desired. With a swipe of a keycard, MSC Yacht Club Members gain a VIP experience comparable to a luxurious, private yacht. Members have access to private dining, private lounging, a private pool area, 24/7 concierge and butler service. Everything MSC Yacht Club members need is tailor-made to their liking and it’s always delivered with a welcoming smile.
The key feature to the MSC Yacht Club Membership is the renowned butler service. The service provided gives guests a truly carefree experience and continues throughout the duration of the cruise. A complimentary mini bar is available in each MSC Yacht Club Member’s room and is regularly restocked. Guests are provided free drinks, soda, water and alcoholic beverages throughout the trip. The MSC Yacht Club experience also offers complimentary laundry services to its VIP guests. Members are invited to restaurants that are only accessible through the MSC Yacht Club. The Top Sail lounge provides a breathtaking panoramic view only seen by members. MSC Yacht Club access also allows for quiet downtime by The One Pool, which is also private, secluded and is just for members. After-hours shopping with the butler is just one further desirable feature of MSC’s Yacht Club experience. The luxury level of MSC Yacht Club is truly unrivaled. With marble accents, wood finishes, and a keen eye for detail, guests really feel like royalty at sea.
Every dish aboard an MSC cruise ship is made with love. The onboard chefs take their time choosing only the finest quality ingredients in a passionate pursuit for dining perfection.
