MSC Cruises has released details on two new Cirque du Soleil shows for the upcoming MSC Meraviglia, the largest cruise ship ever built for the cruise line so far!

New details have been released on the new Cirque du Soleil shows which will be featured on MSC Meraviglia. The new concepts will bring a fantastic entertainment offering to guests lucky enough to cruise on the largest ship ever built for MSC to date.

Gianni Onorato, MSC Cruises Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“We are committed to creating unique experiences that elevate the guest experience to new heights and, for this, we work with innovative, world-class leaders in their sector. It was thus only natural that, when it comes to entertainment, we would look to partner with Cirque du Soleil.”

Cirque du Soleil sat out to create two very different, contrasting shows, each with a different concept, ambiance, storyline, costumes and make-up. The shows will be performed twice a night for six nights so that guests can take the opportunity to see both shows.


The first of the two shows, is the story of a passionate and eccentric artist who hears the call of his Faceless Muse. Mysterious and seductive, she beckons him into the vivid world of his unbridled imagination to complete his masterpiece. With each stroke of his paintbrush, the Painter reveals the details of his grandiose tableau. Electrifying colours fill the space with intriguing motifs and rich textures. Majestic acts transform the theatre into a living canvas. Before our very eyes, a masterpiece comes to life.


The second show – takes guests on an auditory adventure with dancers, acrobats and characters, all moving to the rhythm. It conjures a world of unique sensations, astonishing sounds, bold music and immersive projections and culminates in a grand finale for the senses.

Each of the shows above will include a special cocktail and dinner experience, the first in the fleet when the MSC Meraviglian enters service in June 2017. The vessel will hold two performances six nights a week with each performance lasting for 40 minutes. Each dinner service will be available for 120 guests, with the remainder enjoying the Cocktail & Show. Guests must pre-book Cirque du Soleil at Sea with prices at 35 Euros for the Dinner and Show.
