MSC Meraviglia crew members celebrated the milestone with a cake cutting ceremony in the ships’ Carousel Lounge — the first ever lounge custom-designed to meet the needs of Cirque du Soleil at Sea artists, equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology and special rigging, including a 360 degree rotating stage.
The artists perform the following two shows in MSC Meraviglia’s Carousel Lounge.
VIAGGIO, this is the story of a passionate and eccentric artist who hears the call of his Faceless Muse. Mysterious and seductive, she beckons him into the vivid world of his unbridled imagination to complete his masterpiece. With each stroke of his paintbrush, the Painter reveals the details of his grandiose tableau. Electrifying colours fill the space with intriguing motifs and rich textures. Majestic acts transform the theater into a living canvas. Before our very eyes, a masterpiece comes to life.
With sound at its heart, SONOR – the second show – takes guests on an auditory adventure with dancers, acrobats and characters, all moving to the rhythm. It conjures a world of unique sensations, astonishing sounds, bold music and immersive projections and culminates in a grand finale for the senses.
The two original shows were produced exclusively for MSC Cruises by the world leader in live entertainment, as part of the long-term partnership that first started in 2013. As part of the partnership, a total of eight original shows will come exclusively to MSC Cruises guests on the Company’s Meraviglia generation ships.
MSC Meraviglia, the first of the Meraviglia generation, will also bring her exclusive Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows to North America upon arrival for the first time in October 2018.
