COULD I FEEL CONFINED?

The ultramodern luxury designer ships in the MSC Cruises fleet are a world away from the classic liners of yesteryear, offering a vastly different sense of scale and space, light and style. Just take a look at the deck plans and interactive tours on this site to get an idea of the extraordinary dimensions of the principal lobby atriums, theatres and main restaurants, each extending over several decks and large enough to form an imposing land building on their own. The elegant cabin accommodation is located away from the lively public areas and beautifully laid out to create a sense of spacious ease that becomes as open as the horizon with panoramic balconies or picture windows. And of course the outside decks offer you all the pleasures of superb sports facilities and quiet seclusion with open views in the fresh sea air. Meaning you’re less likely to feel confined on board than in even the most spacious of capital cities.
