The incredible new MSC Meraviglia cruise ship combines cutting edge technology with spectacular entertainment and a love of the sea.
- Ship in Detail
- Deck Plans
The launch of MSC Meraviglia in June 2017 will take the cruise world by storm. It will be the largest ship in the world in terms of capacity – no fewer than 5,700 passengers can be accommodated – and it’s no surprise that the ship’s name means 'wonder' in Italian. This behemoth features cutting-edge wristband technology which allows guests to make payments and parents to geo-locate their children. With two covered promenades and fun water parks, this state-of-the-art vessel offers a wealth of entertainment areas. The whole ceiling of the inside promenade is covered with a giant LED screen offering a digital sky, capable of transmitting events as well as vistas, sunrises, sunsets and the starry skies at night.
Accommodation includes 'cluster cabins', which allow up to three cabins to be opened up to accommodate up to 10 guests - perfect for families. The ship also has a Yacht Club luxury enclave with key card access spanning three decks complete with solarium, swimming pool, lounge and restaurants. There are 78 Suites and Duplex Suites as well as two Apartments designed with a large living room and two balconies.
There are 12 restaurants including speciality dining options such as Eataly – for gourmet Italian cuisine; Butcher’s Cut - an American-style steakhouse with specialty meats from around the world; and the Kaito Teppanyaki Restaurant and Sushi Bar. The Marketplace Buffet is open 20-hours a day, and serves Mediterranean specialities and international cuisines - including world food, ‘itinerary’ and wellness corners.
‘Cirque de Soleil at Sea’ stages two exclusive shows six nights a week in the Carousel Lounge - a performance space with a 180° circular glass wall, featuring cutting-edge technology. The lounge also has capacity for up to 100 passengers to have dinner while watching the show. Another showstopper is a Mediterranean-style indoor promenade, which features a 260 ft LED ‘sky’ that changes throughout the day. It is the social hub of the ship, featuring shops, restaurants and bars. It is also home to the nightly parades, featuring the ship's performers. The 82 ft main pool is the largest at sea; which by night is illuminated with special lighting. There’s a 33 ft indoor pool with a magrodome that can be opened in good weather. At night the Aft Pool is transformed into a dance space open until late.
For the first time on any MSC ship, facilities for families, children and teens are in one place in an amusement park and children's area. Features include the DOREMI Studio Lounge for all family activities; and the DOREMI Tech Lab - a must for technology-minded kids; as well as facilities designed in partnership with the LEGO Group and Chicco.
