Overview

Launched in June 2017, the 4,500-passenger MSC Meraviglia is the largest in the fleet. In fact, it is among the largest cruise ships floating the seas today.

Some of the ship's most impressive features include a promenade equipped with a 5,200-square-foot LED screen dome, a 108-square-foot main pool, and two Formula One virtual reality racing simulators. Thanks to an exclusive partnership with Cirque du Soleil, the ship offers twice-nightly performances six nights a week.

MSC Meraviglia also features 12 dining venues, ranging from a buffet open 20 hours a day to a teppanyaki and sushi restaurant to an authentic Italian eatery.

Equally impressive, more than 60 percent of the ship's staterooms offer balconies. Accommodations range from Interior and Ocean View cabins to Duplex Suites and Yacht Club suites. Those who splurge on Yacht Club category cabins receive additional perks, like 24-hour butler service, access to exclusive venues like the One Pool Deck (a secluded pool and sun deck) and a private restaurant, plus unlimited access to the spa's Thermal Area.

In October 2019, MSC Meraviglia arrives in America from Europe for sailings in Canada, New England and the Caribbean. Meraviglia is also one of four ships in the fleet that will visit MSC's new private island, Ocean Cay, on select cruises.
