Cirque du Soleil At Sea


MSC + Cirque du Soleil

MSC Cruises has partnered with Cirque du Soleil to elevate the guest experience to new heights by introducing creative shows and performance spaces never before seen at sea.
This long-term and unique partnership will see a total of eight original shows produced exclusively for MSC Cruises’ four Meraviglia generation ships.
The first two shows are currently available on board MSC Meraviglia and now, two brand news shows are coming to MSC Bellissima starting March 2019.
Six nights per week, this entertainment experience takes place in the multi-million euro, custom-made entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge, where guests will be able to enjoy dinner or cocktail and then experience a Cirque du Soleil at Sea performance.

MSC Meraviglia

Launched in June 2017.



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.



VIAGGIO is the story of a passionate and eccentric artist who hears the call of his Faceless Muse, a woman he has attempted to paint many times but always in vain. 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.
