MSC Cruises is all about elegant and fun sailing
MSC Cruises is said to one of the largest cruise operator in the world and is widely known as the largest Cargo shipping company. This cruise line covers the Mediterranean almost the entire year and has an impressive itinerary that emphasizes spending quality time in the ports of call. During summer many of its ships sail to northern Europe.
The interior of the ship is elegant yet simple and the Italian style is reflected in the liberal use of brass, marble, and wood. A sophisticated touch is added to the ship with bold colors and clean lines.
The activities onboard are planned keeping in mind the taste of the American as well as the European passengers. The enrichment program on the ships includes cooking classes, guest lectures, Italian-language class, and computer classes.
The evening entertainment may include the flamenco shows, live music, and dancing in the smaller lounges.
Life on the MSC CruisesStay in shape, enjoy great food, try out some games, watch shows, or simply relax by the pool or in the spa.
Recreation and fitness: You can attend basic fitness classes, run or walk on the jogging track, or use the latest exercise equipments. If you want to feel pampered, drop in the spa facility and get a massage, body wrap, or a facial done. Jazz up your look with a hot hairstyle and get your nails done at the saloon. In contrast to many other cruise ships, MSC Cruises operates its own spas.
Dining: Italian is the style of food you can expect on MSC Cruises. The ship has a tradition of offering a multiple-course meal, which is also very authentic. No experiments done here to combine the traditional with the modern taste. Classic favorites and regional Mediterranean specialties are reflected in the menu and everything is made from scratch (no instant food items here). Some of the favorite dishes include veal scaloppini with mushroom and tomatoes (Sorrento in Campania) and the Tuscan mushroom quiche.
Although the preparation of the food is still Italian, in order to accommodate the American palate grilled salmon, broiled chicken breast, and Caesar salads are also added to the menu.
For the health and calorie conscious passengers, vegetarian items, other healthy choices, and appealing sugar-free deserts are also provided. One of the highlights of the cruise line is the freshly-baked bread provided daily. If you want to taste one of the best pizzas at sea, the buffet area of the ship is the place to hit. You can also enjoy the retro food feat at midnight.
Dress code: If you go on a seven-night cruise, you will have two formal nights to dress up to the hilt. For longer cruises, three is likely to be the number for formal nights. Dark suits, sports coat, and ties are favored by men. Jeans are not encouraged and shorts are a big no after six p.m.
