MSC + Cirque du Soleil
MSC Cruises is teaming up with Cirque du Soleil to offer a unique on board experience. Through this partnership, Cirque du Soleil will create 8 different shows exclusively for MSC Cruises. The shows will be presented aboard MSC Cruises next-generation Meraviglia ships in a multi-million euro, ground-breaking entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge. This entertainment experience will take place in the purpose-built 10,700 sq.ft. Carousel lounge, where guests will be able to enjoy dinner or cocktails as well as watch Cirque du Soleil at Sea performances.
This long-term partnership will be extended to MSC Meraviglia’s three sister ships, which will be launched in March & September 2019 and March 2020.
Starting in June 2017, the next-generation ship, MSC Meraviglia, has become the first cruise ship ever to feature a custom entertainment lounge designed to meet the needs of Cirque du Soleil in order to create a unique entertainment experience at sea.
Main character Sonor, a playful, elusive virtual character, first appears in the form of a single sound. Continually altering in appearance, Sonor guides the audience through the show and instigates all that is seen and heard. With sound at its heart, SONOR takes us on an auditory adventure with dancers, acrobats and characters, all moving to the rhythm. Its beat stimulates the senses and fuels our emotions.

Mysterious and seductive, she beckons the Painter to boldly cross the threshold between reality and illusion into the vivid landscape of his unbridled imagination where he will finally complete his masterpiece.
