I was incredibly lucky I have been invited by MSC cruises on all their brand new ships. But this one was very special, the brand new MSC World Europa which was launched from Doha last week.

10 top tips for the MSC World Europa Yacht club
1- Guest in the Yacht club have their own butler who meets and greets them at check and brings you and your bags to your room, this butler is with you right up until you depart.

3- Fully personalised service comes as standard, with access to a 24-hour butler who will quickly get to know each guest. And a dedicated concierge facilitating any request from dinner and spa reservations to a daily newspaper delivery.
4- This ship is the largest MSC yacht club in the fleet, the innovation “ship within a ship” concept is an all-inclusive cruise experience that set a new standard of premium cruising when it was introduced in 2008 by offering guests privacy and exclusivity as well as being able to enjoy all the facilities a larger ship can offer. Yacht club cabins with Tour America & The Travel Suite start from €3999 for two people traveling.
5- A totally reimagined sundeck – spanning two decks, guests have plenty to enjoy the ultimate sea views from the front of the ship where it is located. The lower decks allow guests to unwind and sip a glass of champagne from the bar or a bite to eat from the grill whilst the upper deck is home to a private pool and whirlpool where guests can take in the sun on comfortable loungers or one of the stylish cabanas.
6- Two brand-new ultra-spacious Owner-Suites exclusive to World Class ships, these luxurious multi-room suites total over 150m between indoor and areas and private balcony. The plush suites consist of a double bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom complete with full-size imperial bathtub which connect to a separate living-dining area bathed in light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows.
7- For an ultimate VIP experience, guests step onto their own spacious balcony with al fresco dining area and whirlpool bath.

9- Dedicated massage rooms – guest staying in the MSC yacht club will have access to exclusive massage rooms in the cutting-edge MSC Aurea Spa, as well as unlimited use of the thermal area to pamper the days away.
10- And finally it would be remiss of me not to mention what they have done in the area of sustainability. They are the first MSC ship powered by LNG – Liquified Natural Gas which hugely reduces their emissions and marks a milestone on their journey for zero emissions by 2050. Their state of the art design also includes the latest water recycling technology, to purify wastewater, and propellers studied to reduce the underwater noise in respect of marine wildlife.
