MSC Cruises has announced the opening of sales for MSC Bellissima, the second mega cruise ship of the company's Meraviglia generation of ships. Beginning March 2019, MSC Bellissima will cruise the Western Mediterranean for its inaugural season.
Sales for MSC Bellissima are initially open exclusively to MSC Voyagers Club members, as one of the benefits of the program that rewards loyal MSC Cruises guests. Bookings will open on May 15, 2017, for all other guests.
A highlight of MSC Bellissima’s on board entertainment will be two Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows, created by Cirque de Soleil. The two performances will take place six nights per week in the purpose-built Carousel Lounge, allowing guests to enjoy a performance along with an exclusive pre-show dinner service. The unique experience, created exclusively for MSC Cruises' guests, will be available on both MSC Meraviglia - debuting June 2017 - and now on its sister ship, MSC Bellissima. As an early booking incentive, all guests who book a sailing on MSC Bellissima by July 31, 2017 will receive a complimentary Cirque du Soleil at Sea dinner and show experience as part of their cruise booking.
Other highlights include:
- Six ports in seven nights in the Western Mediterranean
- 10 dining venues
- Family facilities, entertainment and programs
- A Mediterranean-style promenade with a 262 foot LED Sky Screen
- MSC for Me - allowing guests to customize their onboard and on-shore experience
When booking MSC Bellissima, MSC Voyagers Club members will also receive a special 5% discount in addition to their current MSC Voyagers Club early booking discount. All other guests will also enjoy a 5% discount on early booking fares until October 31, 2017. MSC Bellissima will embark on her maiden voyage from Genoa, Italy on March 24, 2019. Prices start at $1,199 per person for a balcony stateroom. MSC Bellissima is currently under construction at the STX France shipyard.
