Experiences

On all Northbound and Southbound Grand Voyage cruises, you need to choose one of the experiences below when booking:

  • Bella Experience: The best value experience, whilst still enjoying the luxury of the ship. Request your preferred dinner seating or visit the buffet if you prefer, which is open 20 hours a day. Enjoy the theatre, daily activities and games, the pool and use of the gym. Also earn MSC Voyager points for use of even better benefits on your next cruise.

  • Fantastica Experience: Includes everything on Bella plus upper deck cabins (check with your agent what's available at the time of booking), more freedom to change your booking details (departure dates/passenger names - terms & conditions apply), be in front of the queue for your choice of dining time, and be pampered with free delivery for your room service all day & night.

  • Aurea Experience: Includes everything on Bella and Fantastica, but expect to be pampered even more! Kick-start your cruise with free priority boarding, then luxuriate in your elegant suite, where you will find a free gift of a fragrance, bathrobe and slippers. This experience also includes a fantastic spa package - one massage, welcome cocktail, tanning shower, private wellness consultation and unrestricted use of the Thermal Area throughout your cruise (available only for adults). My Choice Dining is available, which means you can eat at any time you want to, whilst enjoying all-inclusive unlimited drinks*. (Check with us which drinks are included.) You will also have access to a private sun deck.

  • Wellness Experience: If you are all about health, exercise and nutrition, this is the perfect experience for you. This experience includes everything that Fantastica has plus much more. In conjunction with Technogym, MSC Cruises is offering a personal trainer, a one-on-one health check up with the MSC Medical Staff, an inbody analyser test with your trainer and of course, a selection of nutritious and healthy food and drink choices. Enjoy a personalised wellness programme in various indoor and outdoor locations, delivered through the Wellness Experience App and take advantage of exclusive shore activities dedicated to the care of your body. MSC has even included a complimentary laundry service for provided gym gear - bonus! (This experience is only for adults.)

*Terms and Conditions: Prices are an indication only & can change at any time, but remain subject to foreign exchange, flight and fuel cost fluctuations. Single supplement applies and multiple berth cabins carry a surcharge. Promotions are not combinable with each other, but are combinable with MSC Voyagers Club discounts (except for Tandem). ST&Cs apply. Prices are only guaranteed once a booking has been made and terms and conditions pertaining to the booking are met. Prices include accommodation on board the ship, all meals on the ship, cruise insurance, port charges and service fees. Prices take into account discounts. Limited availability on cabins. We are human and mistakes creep in despite our very best efforts to mitigate these, so E&OE.
