Overview

Setting sail in mid-November 2019, MSC Grandiosa can host a whopping 6,300 passengers and 1,700 crew members. For the 2019-20 season, the ship departs from ports throughout Italy and France, as well as Barcelona, for sailings throughout the Mediterranean.

On board, travelers can take advantage of two different pools, a water park, the Sportplex amusement park and a fitness center. Those seeking a thrilling, albeit less strenuous, entertainment option should check out one of two Cirque du Soleil performances held in the ship's 450-seat Carousel Lounge. Grandiosa also boasts the line's largest Yacht Club – a private section of the ship that offers exclusive amenities to Yacht Club members, such as a private pool and 24-hour butler service. Meanwhile, entertainment options for kids include seven different rooms (each designated for a different age group), a gaming room for teens and an all-new Lego movie maker studio for children.

Guests can choose from a variety of staterooms, including standard Interior, Ocean View and Balcony rooms, as well as Family Cabins (perfect for up to six guests) and an array of Suite-category options. Each stateroom – regardless of size – comes equipped with Zoe: MSC's voice-activated assistant who can answer any questions cruisers have about their ship.

In addition to the main dining room and the Marketplace Buffet (which is open 20 hours a day), cruisers can choose to dine at several specialty spots, including Butcher's Cut for sumptuous steaks and HOLA! Tapas Bar. If you have a sweet tooth, be sure to stop by the Jean-Philippe Maury Chocolaterie for tantalizing confections.
