MSC Cruises and Cirque du Soleil have held a close partnership since 2013, when Pierfrancesco Vago – the line’s Executive Chairman – had the vision to take the entertainment offered on-board to the next level. It was only natural that the choice came to introduce the world-class leaders in live performances, Cirque du Soleil.
The shows are offered exclusively aboard three of MSC Cruises’ ships: MSC Meraviglia, MSC Bellissima and MSC Grandiosa, and each ship has its own performances for their guests. Taking place six nights a week, the shows take place in the multi-million euro, custom-made entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge. Guests can even enjoy dinner and a cocktail pre-show before experiencing Cirque du Soleil at Sea.
