A ship to sing about
MSC Opera lives up to the concepts of opulence, grandeur and spaciousness. Cruise with MSC Opera and live the old-world elegance alongside modern comforts and technology.
The heart and soul of Italy
Many staterooms onboard MSC Opera boast private balconies, and are all spacious and comfortable. With the inspiring hallmark Italian style displayed on all MSC Cruises’ fantastic ships, MSC Opera's public spaces are introduced by a grand marble reception area and wonderful open areas with glass walls showcasing fabulous ocean views.
Here is where you can indulge in the truly authentic Italian experience: get a real espresso fix at the coffee bar, or sample cool, handmade Italian gelato at the ice cream bar. Brush up on your Italian with lessons available onboard, browse at the Internet Café or just use one of the many MSC Wi-Fi spots in select areas.
Spend some family time with round or two of mini-golf, or sweat it out at the health club. Then look forward to a fabulous evening, starting with a seven-course dinner, and then trumped by Italian-style entertainment at the Teatro dell Opera.
