What to know about MSC

So let’s dig in to our MSC Cruises profile. MSC Cruises is the fastest growing cruise line in the world. Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, MSC Cruises is part of the Cruises Division of MSC Group, the privately-held Swiss-based shipping and logistics conglomerate.

Additionally, MSC Group’s Cruises Division is investing an additional €2 billion in a new luxury cruise brand comprising four super-yacht ships, launching one per year between 2023 and 2026.Sailing to more than 200 destinations across five continents, MSC Cruises brings together more than 180 nationalities from around the world, offering an enriching and immersive cruise experience inspired by the Company’s European heritage. Expect to find international dining, world-class entertainment, award-winning family programs and the very latest guest-friendly technology on board.

Cool facts

No MSC Cruises Profile would be complete without mentioning some of the awesome things they’ve done.

MSC Foundation, the private non-profit foundation established to lead, focus and advance MSC Group’s conservation and humanitarian commitments, launched today #SuperCoralPlay, a campaign to raise awareness of the need to take action to protect and preserve coral reefs. The campaign is the result of a partnership between MSC Cruises – an MSC Group company – the Miami Super Bowl Host Committee (MSBHC), and 54 NFL players and influencers, such as Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry and broadcaster and retired NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez.

What you can Expect:

  • A European cruise experience
  • Beautiful ships
  • Their NEW Private Destination:
    • Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve is in The Bahamas, 65 miles from Miami. Once an industrial sand excavation site, Ocean Cay has been transformed by MSC Cruises – its operator – into a private island destination with a flourishing marine reserve. The MSC Foundation, working in collaboration with a team of scientists and environmental experts, are identifying hardy species of coral, colloquially termed “Super Coral” , that have survived recent extreme ocean heat events and other impacts in the waters near the island. By conducting research and studying and propagating such types of coral species, it is considered possible to restore reefs while enhancing their tolerance to future environmental change. This can provide a life-line for coral reefs in the region and ensuring their future survival.
  • Customized “Experiences” designed to accommodate every need. Each comes with special perks and privileges
    • Bella
    • Fantastica
    • Aurea
    • MSC Yacht Club

What is the cruise line’s superpower?

The Yacht Club for sure!

Here’s what other’s are saying about CruiseTipsTV Unplugged

  • No unplayed episodes!

    Your podcast was the first podcast I had ever listened to back in 2019 and I’ve been a faithful listener ever since. In fact, I find myself eagerly awaiting each new episode. I’ve even started over from the beginning a couple of times now and learn something new each time. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us!!

  • Pretty good
    June 22, 2024 by 123ABC*#$ from United States

    It’s a cruise podcast, so it automatically gets three stars. The hosts are nice and always positive Sometimes too positive? Borderline Pollyanna. A little salt with the sweet would make the show more palatable. Give us a little details on the “bad” with all the good. On this note, I’m concerned that since going pro, the show is starting to feel more like a commercial for the cruise industry. For instance, the recent Oceania YouTube post- that had the feel of a paid endorsement. I listen to these shows for honest reviews and experiences. So, I’m a bit saddened by this seemingly new direction.

  • Great info for new cruisers
    June 21, 2024 by Cooper Wendling from United States

    I found this podcast several months ago, in preparation for my first cruise. This show is fun and light while also being truthful and informative. I’ve learned so much from these podcasts and now I won’t feel like such a newbie when I step onto a cruise ship for the first time in a few months!
