MSC Virtuosa cruises for 2021


MSC Virtuosa arrives in September 2020, with 200 more cabins than earlier Meraviglia Class ships. From November 2020 MSC Virtuosa will run 7-night round trips of the Western Mediterranean, visiting Civitavecchia (for Rome), Palermo (Sicily), Malta, Barcelona, Marseille and Genoa. Guests may board the ship any of the major ports on the circuit. The ship has a low draft allowing access to a wide range of ports for future itineraries. This 181,000 GT vessel will be the largest for MSC, carrying 4888 at double occupancy (and doubtless many more during school holidays!). This larger Meraviglia Plus Class ship offers more public space per guest.

Life aboard MSC Virtuosa
MSC Virtuosa arrives in September 2020, with 200 more cabins than earlier Meraviglia Class ships. From November 2020 MSC Virtuosa will run 7-night round trips of the Western Mediterranean, visiting Civitavecchia (for Rome), Palermo (Sicily), Malta, Barcelona, Marseille and Genoa. Guests may board the ship any of the major ports on the circuit. The ship has a low draft allowing access to a wide range of ports for future itineraries. This 181,000 GT vessel will be the largest for MSC, carrying 4888 at double occupancy (and doubtless many more during school holidays!). This larger Meraviglia Plus Class ship offers more public space per guest.

A new feature with MSC Virtuosa is the extended interior Promenade, with cafes, bars and shops, and overhead the entire ceiling is a 95m by 6m LED screen displaying panoramas and the night sky. Another is the ‘Near Field Communication’ system, whereby a wrist bracelet, smart phone or key card gives you access to booking facilities, dining, accounts, and location of family members. Also new is a modern Fine Arts Museum. The large ship offers more guest space in public areas. Attractions available on board will include a choice of 12 different dining venues, an authentic Balinese Spa, the DOREMI Studio Lounge offering family activities, a pool deck, and 24-hour butler service. The ship will also be home to two new shows from Cirque du Soleil at Sea that were created exclusively for MSC passengers. The vessel will feature innovations including hybrid power systems, state-of-the art waste management and emission-reducing energy and heat recovery systems. The digital cruise assistant, Zoe, is a voice-enabled Artificial Intelligence device fitted in every cabin. Download the MSC app to your phone or tablet to organise your onboard plans.

Accommodation
MSC Virtuosa offers four accommodation grades, price based on the features offered: Bella, Fantastica, Aurea, and Yacht Club. There are 10 stateroom classes, all of which have beds that can be either single or double, spacious wardrobe, bathroom with shower, interactive TV, telephone, Wi-Fi connection (pay), mini-bar, safe and AC. Suites have a whirlpool bath. Deluxe suites add a Nespresso machine. Families also have the choice of two or three interconnecting rooms, for 6 to 10 occupants.

There are five types of suites: Suite with angled balcony, Duplex suites over two levels with private whirlpool baths, Yacht Club Interior, and Yacht Club Royal that has a dining table. MSC Yacht Club guests have access to the luxurious MSC Yacht Club facilities, entirely self-contained with restaurants, a solarium with its own pool, a private lounge and fascinating suites with private whirlpool baths.

Food and Dining
There will be at least 12 distinct dining venues. The principal dining rooms serve Mediterranean and International cuisines, with open seating for breakfast and lunch, and two seatings for dinner. Dine at fixed times and tables, or change your time daily. Yacht Club guests have their own dining area. There are formal evenings, special meals and times for children, dietary options (ordered before the cruise), and in-cabin Continental Breakfast (some classes pay). The casual Buffet Restaurant is open 20 hours daily. Pizzas and fast food is always on the menu. Just check ahead of time for the pay-extra foods. (Incidentally, instead of paying for cold water in dining rooms, fill your own bottle in your cabin, chill it in the mini-bar, and bring it with you at meal times.)

Details of dining have not yet been released, but based on similar ships specialty dining may be offered at Butcher’s Cut, in the Teppanyaki Restaurant with Sushi Bar, and ¡HOLA! Tapas Bar. Yacht Club dining (complimentary for suites) will be available with silver service, in Top Sail Lounge, and on the One Sun Deck. There’s also the Solarium Grill. Ask about the possible new French specialty restaurant, l’Atelier Bistrot. The Aft Restaurant is the place for snacks and glass-walled vista of the ship’s wake. Also new is the Jean-Philippe Maury Chocolaterie and Chocolate Bar. There are two extra restaurants in the extended indoor promenade. There’s no tea or coffee for lunch and dinner in the dining rooms, only in the buffet. You may have to ask for milk.

Entertainment
The line offers a rich program of shows in its two-decked main theatre: Broadway and Las Vegas-style theatrical performances, live music and nightlife. Fast-moving commentary comes in up to six languages. Many productions will be visual rather than spoken. MSC Virtuosa will feature shows from Cirque du Soleil in the Carousel Lounge, with two performances nightly in the circular theatre, along with dining. The ship will have a number of bands and small ensembles to provide music for dancing and background. To get away from the constant activity and noise, retire to Library/Card Room.

Youngsters access brand products from LEGO and Chicco. The double-deck indoor Amusement Park and outdoor Aqua Park are adjoining, and certainly will become the focus for younger ones. MSC strongly promotes family and child activities in the most modern fleet on the oceans. A few occasional notes: Children sail free on certain itineraries, and in July/August there may be 400 or so. Heavy smokers may be everywhere, and the staff may be more focused on Italian passengers. Port calls may be short time-wise.
