The iconic Mediterranean Promenade is at the heart of the ship. Under the 323-ft.-long LED sky, guests can enjoy a varied entertainment program as well as being able to shop, eat and drink.

MSC Grandiosa takes the onboard shopping experience to a new level, with the indoor promenade at the center of that experience. Here, in the shopping mall-style boutiques, guests will find their favorite brands of clothing, jewelry, technology and more, all at unbeatable prices.

The specialty restaurants are also located here, including the new restaurant concept L’Atelier Bistrot, a French-inspired bar with lounge area, which also offers a stage and dance floor as well as a seated terrace.

The entertainment highlights will be two brand new, never before seen shows from Cirque du Soleil at Sea. The shows are created by world-leader in live entertainment, Cirque du Soleil as part of a unique long-term with MSC Cruises.

MSC Grandiosa will feature the world’s first virtual personal cruise assistant, ZOE. This artificial intelligence service will answer guest questions in the comfort of their staterooms, a ground-breaking feature of the connected cruise experience, MSC for Me.

Designed as a ship for all seasons, MSC Grandiosa will spend winter in the Mediterranean. This is a wonderful time of year to discover some of the the most beautiful destinations in this popular region such as Barcelona, Palermo, Marseille or Valletta in Malta. There are less visitors at this time of year and the climate in Italy, France and Spain is perfect for exploring and discovering everything that these incredible ports have to offer.

TV star Michelle Hunziker will host the glamorous events as the Company’s newest flagship will be officially named in the Port of Hamburg in November.

MSC Grandiosa is a part of MSC Cruises’ 10 year, $15.6 billion investment plan. After MSC Grandiosa is launched, the cruise line has another 12 new ships launching through 2027.

Meraviglia generation ships have been designed to meet every need of today’s cruise guest. The extraordinary design, wide array of facilities and entertainment make these ships ideal for the whole family. Designed for all seasons, they are able to call at most of the world’s international cruise ports.
