MSC Cruises is Expanding Their Partnership With Chef Ramón Freixa

MSC Cruises, the world’s largest privately owned cruise line, is expanding its partnership with two Michelin starred chef Ramón Freixa to bring his unique tapas concept to MSC Meraviglia after a successful launch on sister ship MSC Bellissima in March.

Located on the bustling Mediterranean-style promenade at the heart of the Meraviglia class ships, the HOLA! Tapas Bar concept has been designed to offer a social dining experience where guests can enjoy a range of traditional and modern shared plates and small bites inspired by some of Spain’s most popular dishes.

Freixa is part of an impressive line-up of top international chefs that includes renowned German chef Harald Wohlfahrt who held a three Michelin Star rating for 25 years in a row, two Michelin starred chef Raymond Blanc, innovative pan-Asian chef Roy Yamaguchi, award-winning pastry chef Jean-Philippe Maury and acclaimed Chinese chef Jereme Leung.

Each of these talents represent some of the world’s most sought after cuisines, with their own distinct style and vision, creating a memorable fine-dining experience for guests across the fleet.

Ramón Freixa commented: “I am very happy to extend the HOLA! Tapas Bar concept to two more ships in MSC Cruises’ fleet, allowing guests from all over the world to enjoy a true taste of Spain through appetizing tapas in our cheerful bar atmosphere – it is a wonderful way to celebrate the Mediterranean style of life.”

HOLA! TAPAS BAR

Located on the bustling Mediterranean-style promenade at the heart of the Meraviglia class ships, the HOLA! Tapas Bar concept has been designed to offer a social and warm dining experience where guests can enjoy a range of traditional and modern shared plates and small bites inspired by some of Spain’s most popular dishes.

With an open environment containing a mixture of communal and individual seating, guests can savour a quick bite, glass of Spanish wine, or enjoy a full meal. Some of the menu highlights include authentic Spanish tortilla, olive, anchovy & pepper Gilda and for those with a sweet-tooth, the quintessential Catalan dessert: Catalan Cream.

Guests sailing with MSC Cruises over the last year have already been able to experience Ramón’s innovative gastronomy in a number of ways:

  • An exquisite Elegant Dinner dish in the main restaurants across MSC Cruises’ fleet
  • Exclusive tapas items and a signature dish for MSC Yacht Club guests across the fleet
  • His first restaurant at sea, Ocean Cay by Ramón Freixa, which opened on board MSC Seaview in 2018, offering guests luxury fish and shellfish in this specialty restaurant
  • Special menus for selected ships for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve celebrations
  • Most recently, his exclusive HOLA! Tapas Bar concept, which opened with the launch of MSC Bellissima earlier this year and will now be available on MSC Meraviglia and MSC Grandiosa
