15 Annual Awards Recognize MSC Cruises for the Best Nightlife and Best Suite Complex

Geneva, Switzerland – December 6, 2023 – MSC Cruises has been recognized as one of this year’s best cruise lines in two categories of Cruise Critic’s 2023 Editors’ Picks Awards. Cruise Critic, the world’s leading cruise reviews site and online cruise community, presents these awards as the industry’s most comprehensive recognition of the best cruise lines of the year, as chosen by the site’s international team of cruise experts. 

MSC Cruises was awarded with the following recognitions in the Ocean Category:

Best Nightlife

MSC Cruises stands out for its vibrant nightlife, featuring numerous bars, lounges and entertainment options across its entire fleet of ships. The cruise line is renowned for its themed nights, pop-up entertainment and world-class shows that keep guests engaged well into the night. According to Cruise Critic’s editors: 

“There aren’t many lines where, when the clubs and bars wind down, the party continues deep into the night. MSC has mastered the fun nightlife. Whether it’s a 70s theme night with the entertainment team dressed like the Village People, live DJs in the main promenade or a White Night Party with live music on the main pool deck, there is always something going on an MSC ship.”

Best Suite Complex

MSC Yacht Club offers a ship-within-a-ship experience, delivering a luxurious escape within the broader MSC Cruises offering. With access to all the regular dining, entertainment and amenities onboard, along with the option to retreat to a private, exclusive oasis for relaxation, MSC Yacht Club suites offer the best of both worlds. According to Cruise Critic’s editors:

“MSC’s gorgeous MSC Yacht Club is proof that not all luxury suite complexes are created equal. This private enclave boasts all the requisite perks you might expect, from lavish suites to grand lounges and private dining areas. MSC sets itself apart by making that complex more accessible than ever before, thanks to the line’s value-priced MSC Yacht Club Inside Staterooms that provide a lot of luxe for a little dough.”

Rubén Rodriguez, President of MSC Cruises USA, said: “We are thrilled and honored to be recognized by Cruise Critic in two prestigious categories for their 2023 Editors’ Picks Awards. Winning Best Nightlife and Best Suite Complex affirms our commitment to delivering exceptional experiences, from lively onboard entertainment to the luxurious retreat offered by MSC Yacht Club. These accolades reflect our dedication to providing guests with unparalleled moments and ensuring their vacation with MSC Cruises is truly unforgettable.”

Guided by the Cruise Critic editorial team’s impartial expertise – based on first-hand experiences and industry knowledge – the awards name the best-in-industry while also helping travelers select the best cruise for their specific interests and needs.
