What to know about MSC

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!

  • White party on Seaside
  • Bridge of sighs on seaside
  • The Aurea spa and snow room on seaside – incredible spa experience on seaside

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

  • Absolutely Outstanding - with Bonus Content5star
    by BiggerBlessings from United States

    I began listening to podcasts to keep me motivated to a brisk walk for 30 minutes or more per day. And my non-guilty pleasure (I don’t feel guilty, at all) is cruising. Cruising has given my hubby and I some great times away together and some great times at home dreaming about our next destination. I’m hesitant to try new podcast content because people’s voices or mannerisms (or opinions treated as fact) can easily grate; but, I’m so glad I gave your podcasts a try. I’m now listening to all the new content each week; but also listening to older content to keep my exercise promise fresh and doable. I learn something every. single. time. I listen, wow! But what is this “bonus content” I hinted about in the title? It’s the way you model a healthy, fun marriage based on friendship and respect; along with the way you model great parenting where you encourage (and never demean or complain about) junior. In a world where every TV commercial involves making our men out to be dunderheads, it’s super refreshing to hear your fun banter based on respect and lifting each other up!!

  • Very knowledgeable about all things cruise related5star
    by Cruise_Baker_girl from United States

    Sheri & her family provide a lot of information about cruises like what to do the day of your cruise & pre-cruise like creating a packing list & booking pre-cruise hotels & pre&post-cruise flights. Sheri provides a lot of cruise information on cttv podcast & vlogs. Since I started listening to the podcast last year & watching the vlogs for almost 5 years & reading some information on the cttv website I have booked 2 cruises on Royal Caribbean in the past & 2 cruise on Carnival & 1 cruise on Royal Caribbean in the future, not including the 3 cruises that I went on before I started listening & watching the podcast & vlogs & reading some info on their website.

    Sheri, Mr CTTV and Junior Editor create highly addictive content that might change your life. Be warned, they surely changed mine. Not only is their Family as warm as Caribbean seas, but their lifestyle of Happy Travelers is pure inspiration. They are always positive Podcasters that opened my horizons to the sea of cruising possibilities. I love that they are so welcoming to the new sailers like myself, and I appreciate their knowledge and passion for cruising. I cannot imagine my Wednesdays without their Podcast, and every new Youtube video makes me as happy as a seagull with a french fry. Do yourself a favour and dive right in this sea of information that this lovely Family equips you with. Oh, and have I mentioned that both Sheri and Mr CTTV have voices as soothing as summer waves on the shore? Because they do! Listening to this podcast can literally make you drift away to the furthest destinations in both- your imagination and in reality, because you *will* get influenced to book your next cruising adventure listening to them.
