MSC Meraviglia naming ceremony.

Mille and I were thrilled to have been invited and indeed to have attended the naming ceremony of MSC Meraviglia in Le Harve, attended by godmother and screen icon Sophia Loren. We had the most wonderful time as we celebrated with representatives from 192 countries whom all sell MSC Cruises.

This brand new exciting ship, is the biggest ship ever built by a European-based cruise line and the largest to launch this year.

5,700 guests
171,598 tonnes

Innovation and creativity are the words I feel best describes the ship. From the moment we first stepped on board, we were impressed with all we saw. There is almost too much to take in, as the ship is full of so many wonderful facilities. As we only had a short amount of time on the ship we sadly did not see it all.

We loved the sense of space that was prelevant throughout the ship, and we thought that all areas were designed to the highest standard. Cabins were spacious and had suitable spaces for holiday storage.
The promenade area was super and it was here that technology has been taken to another level. There was a dome that ran the entire length of the promenade the whole ceiling of the inside promenade is covered with a giant 480-m² LED screen which has ever changing movies. A magnificent attribute to what was a super area lined with restaurants and shops

MSC Yacht Club will feature exclusive restaurants, a private lounge, private whirlpool baths and several spacious suites. Outside of these premium suites you’ll find a variety of staterooms such as duplex suites, balcony/oceanview/interior staterooms and MSC Cruises’ new family staterooms. When you aren’t relaxing in your state-of-the-art accommodations, you could be enjoying any number of activities aboard the MSC Meraviglia’s expansive decks. From the two-story amusement park and outdoor water park

There are 4D cinemas, flight simulator and formula 1 simulator, Chocolate café, champagne bars, speciality restaurants, and the world famous Cirque De Soleil. There is so much more I could tell you, but I do recommend taking a cruise – with cruise only prices from £499 for a week there really has never been a better time to try this wonderful new cruising experience
