The MSC Magnifica is scheduled to debut in March 2010.
Selecting an MSC Cruise Line ship promises passengers an unforgettable experience onboard luxury vessels known not only for their beauty and elegance but also for providing stellar customer service, beautifully appointed accommodations, and fine dining. More than 100 diverse itineraries are available when selecting an MSC cruise, offering trips to exotic and out-of-the-way ports of call.
Known for their high standard of elegance, all MSC ships feature luxurious interiors, rich wood décor, sweeping grand staircases, sparkling chandeliers, and Italian marble, which adds to the already rich atmosphere. The newest member of the fleet, the MSC Magnifica, matches the standards set for any MSC cruise line ship and promises guests a relaxing and luxurious journey. Travelers aboard the Magnifica cruise ship are sure to find a superior cruising adventure to any of the ships destinations; with the staff’s attention, no detail is too small when traveling aboard the MSC Magnifica.
The design of the Magnifica Cruise Ship, while catering to the comfort of guests, also boasts advanced technology that makes the ship energy-efficient and reduces its environmental impact. Amenities onboard the ship include a wellness center, Balinese massages, Turkish baths, saunas, a fitness center, and a beauty salon. For leisure time, there are options for several outdoor recreational activities, including three swimming pools, a solarium, jogging track, and tennis and basketball courts. A retractable roof allows one of the pools to be accessible even during winter cruises.
Dining is a memorable experience aboard any MSC cruise line ship, and the Magnifica doesn't disappoint. The Italian influence is prevalent with seven-course meals and Italian specialty dishes such as crepes Florentine, pumpkin risotto, and traditional pizzas. The ship has five restaurants that offer a diverse selection of menus, including Chinese, sushi, and Tex Mex. An added feature for guests’ convenience is the midnight buffet, which offers assorted selections of food for travelers who find themselves hungry late at night. Before or after dinner, guests have their choice in entertainment, with several bars, a cigar lounge, casino, cinema, nightclub, and 1,200-seat theater.
Entertaining young guests is important on the MSC Magnifica and to make that happen, three clubs are available for children ranging from ages 3 to 17. The Mini Club caters to children aged 3 to 6, while the Junior Club is for 7- to 12-year-olds, and the Teenagers Club is geared toward passengers aged 13 to 17. Plenty of activities keep kids entertained aboard the Magnifica cruise ship, such as games, movies, arts and crafts, dancing, painting courses, and miniature golf. Children have continuous supervision to ensure their safety, and they also have their own Children’s Menu with classic items including hamburgers and hot dogs.
A special feature for families is discounts for all shore excursions that apply to children under age 12. In addition, children age 17 and under sail for free on all MSC cruise ships as long as they are traveling with two adults and stay in the same stateroom. Whether you're interested in visiting destinations in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, South America, Northern Europe, North America, or Africa, the MSC Magnifica promises a delightful vacation for passengers of every age and interest.
