MSC Cruises have so many unique onboard activities for you to try across their amazing fleet of ships. From incredible Cirque de Soleil shows to interactive water parks, there is sure to be something that everyone is going to love onboard an MSC cruise ship! Here are 10 things you can only do on an MSC cruise ship!
MSC Cruises has partnered with Cirque du Soleil to offer a completely unique onboard entertainment experience. They have created a total of eight original shows that will be exclusively available on MSC Cruises’ four Meraviglia generation ships. Six nights per week, this entertainment experience takes place in the multi-million euro, custom-made entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge. In the Carousel Lounge, guests will be able to enjoy dinner and cocktails as they watch the Cirque du Soleil productions. This is truly an at-sea performance that is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.
MSC’s Wellness Experience aims to give Wellness guests a revolutionised fitness regime that they can enjoy on their cruise. Wellness guests get privileged access to active excursions, wellness menus and onboard personal sports programmes. This unique Wellness Experience is the perfect way to stick to your fitness goals while enjoying your cruise holiday.
MSC Cruise has really great interactive experiences on board. One of the coolest is the chance to get behind the wheel of a Formula One car! This simulator experience gives you the opportunity to really feel like a racer driver as you sit in the driving seat of the cockpit before you get to experience the thrill of travelling at high speeds in a Formula One race car! From the flash of the green light to overtaking a rival, the goal is to safely and quickly make it to the checkered flag and be the winner. Another great experience you can enjoy on an MSC Cruise is on their incredible ship, the MSC Seaside. While onboard Seaside, you can take your cinema experience to the next level in the Interactive 5D Cinema. With moving seats and amazing special effects, guests are able to interact with the movie making sure everyone will have a fun time. MSC also feature interactive cinemas on other ships.
The Infinity Bridge on MSC Seaside and MSC Seaview allows guests to feel like they are walking on water! Walk across a glass bridge and be amazed at the sea views below. The rear of these ships is fitted with panoramic lifts, which will take you to the bridge. The Infinity Bridges are designed to sit on the outside of the ship and avoid the traditional ship layout. By having the glass, panoramic lift adjoining the Infinity Bridge experience, guests stay connected with the sea throughout the experience. We recommend you take a stroll across the Infinity Bridge at Sunset.
Did you know you can bowl at sea with MSC? Practise your bowling skills on not one, but two full-size bowling alleys onboard MSC Seaside! This is the perfect family-friendly activity to enjoy during a day at sea.
