The MSC Grandiosa will be the new flagship of MSC cruises and start sailing the oceans in November 2019. In its first season the ship will take you to the most beautiful coastal cities of the Mediterranean Sea. Building on the Meraviglia class, the MSC Grandiosa offers even more space in public areas than its two sister ships. Worth mentioning are also the modern environmental technologies the ship is equipped with. These include the on-shore power connection, an innovative wastewater treatment system, a hybrid emission control system and a modern Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) catalyst – measures that reduce the environmental impact. On board, two new first-class shows at the Cirque du Solei at Sea, specially created for the MSC Grandiosa, will take you to breathtaking worlds. The central promenade aboard has boutiques, restaurants and cozy squares throughout the day. In the evening, the square becomes the center of music, parties and entertainment.
The new MSC Grandiosa offers a variety of different cabin categories, including family cabins, maisonette suites with private whirlpool, ocean view cabins, single cabins and more. The cabins vary in size from 12 to 22 square meters, depending on the chosen category. The special family cabins consist of two or three cabins that can be interconnected. The smallest suites offer between 27 and 39 m² while the large maisonette suites offer up to 59 m² on two decks. All cabins and suites are designed in a modern and friendly style to provide a comfortable home away from home.
Atmosphere on Board
The atmosphere aboard the ships of MSC Cruises is relaxed and casual, with many opportunities for activities. A wide range of sports, culinary highlights and first-class entertainment provide variety. Also on the MSC Grandiosa many families will be on board during the summer months and typical Italian cheerfulness accompanies you on your journey. Those seeking for peace and rest will also get their money’s worth on board and can relax in the spa area or retire in many relaxation areas.
Food and Beverages
The cuisine on the ships of the MSC fleet is good and tasty and meets the standard of a good mid-class ship. The restaurants offer variety and fresh cuisine, so every guest on board can find the right thing for themselves. At a surcharge, you can enjoy special dishes and exquisite meals in one of the specialty restaurants.
Entertainment, Sports and Relaxation
On board, there are many ways to organise your holidays. Relax in the popular Aurea Spa, a luxurious Balinese spa where body, mind and soul come together. A beauty and a nail salon also invite you to pamper yourself. For more active guests, the gym by Technogym® offers state-of-the-art equipment for cardio and strength training as well as innovative courses and training programs. A special highlight on board the MSC Grandiosa is the entertainment program. Colorful shows, musical performances and many activities await you. Especially the unique art exhibition from Edgar Degas invites you to stay and enjoy. Next to the impressive arts five videos about his life and workings ist shown and therefore art and technology combined.
The new MSC Grandiosa combines the shipping company’s popular Mediterranean charm with the most modern amenities of a large cruise ship. Sports enthusiasts will get their money’s worth as well as those seeking for peace or families with children. The price-performance ratio aboard the ships of MSC Cruises is good.
