MSC Cruises pledges ‘richness of experience’ in largest ship ever Grandiosa – why is this?

Cruise vessel MSC Grandiosa, the newest and largest ship in the MSC Cruises fleet, is adding an extra spot of culture to cruising. The Geneva-based firm has revealed just how its new flagship vessel will stand out from the pack, and ooze a “richness of experience” on board. MSC Grandiosa’s Mediterranean layout will be complemented with some traditional creativity in an immersive art and dining experience. Passengers are promised a “spellbinding exhibition of original impressionist art”, courtesy of iconic painter Edgar Degas.

Famed for his portraits of posture-perfect ballerinas, a collection of his 26 studies of movement and dance will be showcased in the Danse Dessin.

The works were previously showcased in major galleries and will be a huge draw for art-loving travellers across the globe.

Giving a nod to Degas’ French heritage, that will be found inside the French Bistro at MSC Grandiosa.

Videos will run alongside the artwork in an immersive experience, and hopes to bring passengers of all ages closer to art.

Marcello Smarrelli, exhibition curator, said: “Despite his apparently romantic subjects, Degas was a great experimenter, deeply interested in the use of new technologies available in those years of great scientific and industrial renewal.

“The focus of his artistic research was the study of the movement of the human body and the attempt to reproduce it in an artwork.

“For this reason, his artistic practice was fundamental for the birth of photography and cinema of which Degas was a pioneer.

“I’m sure he would have loved this interactive art exhibition, the first of its kind at sea and it is an exciting opportunity to connect people with Degas’ artwork in a new way and bring it to life through digital content for MSC Cruises guests.”

MSC Grandiosa will launch in November, with visitors tenable to access the artwork.

Recently, MSC Cruises revealed their top tip for when to best book your trip.

MSC Cruises told “In cruise, you really are rewarded for booking early. Cruises go on sale up to 18 months before the sailing so there’s plenty of time to do your research and grab a bargain.

“January to March is called the ‘wave’ season where booking early is encouraged.

“For the last two year’s MSC Cruises have included an all-inclusive drinks package with all bookings made for the current year and the following year so keep your eyes peeled on social media and websites to secure the best cabins at the best price.”

The cruise line added: “Whilst the ‘wave season’ officially starts in January promotions are often started as early as December so keep one eye on your mince pie and one eye online.”

Another trick to saving money is to travel out of season. “Visit the Mediterranean in winter and cruise for as little as £399 per person on MSC Meraviglia, one of the newest ships in the MSC Cruises fleet and get to explore the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the Trevi Fountain in Rome and Grandmaster’s Palace in Valletta without the peak season crowd,” said MSC Cruises.
