On Board

The MSC Meraviglia is the ultimate vacation at sea. This ship features gourmet dining, unbelievable entertainment, an innovative ocean-view lounge, a two-deck inside “promenade” with an LED dome and a huge amusement area connected to an outdoor waterpark. 

Spend the day lounging at the Horizon pool and watch as it transforms into an entertainment area under the stars by night. Every cruise also features six different shows at the Broadway theater and Carousel productions at sea. 

This MSC-exclusive entertainment experience blends acrobatics, dance, and live music for an unforgettable show. The ship also has a gym with state-of-the-art equipment and panoramic views. There are also plenty of activities to do onboard, including a bowling alley, F1 simulators, and mini and junior clubs. 

Unwind, relax, and enjoy your vacation with some well-deserved pampering at MSC Aurea Spa. This luxurious Balinese spa includes a thermal area, beauty salon, nail boutique, and a variety of relaxing and revitalizing treatments. You can also indulge in the comforts of our staterooms and suites, which are available in a variety of styles and offer gorgeous views. 

The Maraviglia’s main restaurants serve freshly prepared Mediterranean and international cuisine and specialty restaurants serving Italian, steak, sushi and more. You can also grab a drink, sit back and relax at one of the many luxurious bars and lounges on board. 


Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Port Canaveral in Florida. This location is one of the most popular cruise stops in the world, it was even voted the best U.S. cruise homeport for the third consecutive year. 

There are plenty of exciting attractions, things to do and, of course, beautiful beaches. Then, spend New Year’s Day soaking up the sun in the capital of the beautiful Bahamas, Nassau. These beaches are something straight off of a postcard and perfect for diving and snorkeling. 

Finally, the last stop is at an exclusive location: Ocean Cay. This private island is full of once-in-a-lifetime experiences and excursions.
