What You’ll Love...

The Ship – Classic cruising elegance with entertainment from Cirque du Soleil

If you’re a fan of elegance onboard you’ll love the classic beauty of MSC Meraviglia. Admire sunrises, sunsets and starry night skies transmitted by a ‘virtual sky’, the longest LED dome at sea that covers the inside promenade; shop ‘til you drop in the onboard boutiques; pamper yourself at the MSC Aurea Spa; go for a dip in the stunning rooftop pool and taste your way around the 12 dining destinations onboard, serving everything from Italian to Japanese cuisine. World-class entertainment is provided by circus troupe Cirque du Soleil, who have devised two original shows especially for the guests of MSC Meraviglia. There’s plenty more for the whole family to enjoy, including a waterpark with three twisting slides and a range of pools, a TV studio broadcasting live games and talent contests, a sports centre, F1 simulators, a bowling alley and kids’ clubs.

The Journey – A taste of the Mediterranean

Your cruise experience begins in the vibrant Spanish city of Barcelona, Catalunya. Lose yourself in its world-class art museums, designer restaurants, bars, galleries and boutiques, marvel at Antoni Gaudí’s extraordinary church of the Sagrada Família and stroll the world-famous boulevard of Ramblas before boarding the MSC Meraviglia for your Mediterranean adventure.

Onwards to Marseille, France’s southernmost city, where you can immerse yourself in local life at one of the chic cafés around the Vieux Port, where fish are sold straight off the boats on quai des Belges.

The eclectic and vibrant old port town of Genoa in Italy awaits, which invites you to amble down medieval alleyways, marvel at historic architecture such as the Renaissance palaces of Via Garibaldi and sample real Italian gelato, pasta and pizza.

Thousands of years of history lie before you in Italy’s Civitavecchia, whose key attractions include the 16th-century Forte Michelangelo, the ancient Taurine Baths and the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II main square. Use the town as a launchpad to explore the ancient city of Rome, home to incredible gilt-lined churches hidden down the most unassuming of streets, priceless works of art by the likes of Michelangelo and Raphael, and world-renowned buildings that have stood for thousands of years, from the Pantheon to the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican.

Explore the city of Palermo on the Italian island of Sicily, home to magnificent Baroque architecture, a 12th-century cathedral, Norman art, medieval streets and bustling markets.

The UNESCO World Heritage-protected Mediterranean port of Valletta in Malta is your final stop before returning to Barcelona. As the ship approaches, admire the crumbling 16th-century architecture before disembarking to discover its beaches, restaurants and charming seaside locales.
