MSC Cruises has announced the opening of sales for MSC Virtuosa, beginning its inaugural season in the Western Mediterranean on November 8, 2020. Sales are open now exclusively for MSC Voyagers Club members, as one of the benefits of the loyalty program that rewards MSC Cruises guests. For all other guests, bookings will open on December 3.

MSC Virtuosa will be the fourth ship in the Meraviglia generation and the second Meraviglia-plus ship, an evolution of the Meraviglia class offering additional staterooms and more public space. MSC Virtuosa has been named to pay homage to the skill and expertise of MSC Cruise’s architects and shipyard partners at Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique who designed and built this class of ships.

This ground-breaking class of ships, including MSC Virtuosa, has been designed with onboard features, with a range of entertainment, dining, relaxation, shopping and other features as well as the iconic MSC Yacht Club, a “ship within a ship” concept. Highlights of the MSC Virtuosa distinct on-board experience include:
