Cabins: A whopping 80% of staterooms have an ocean view, and 95% of those have balconies. All accommodations are beautifully decorated and comfortable, yet they are still somewhat smaller than the average cabins found on the new ships of other cruise lines. All cabins are furnished with two twin beds that can be combined to create a king, a vanity-desk, TV, Ethernet connection for use with laptops, adequate closet and storage space, small refrigerator, and hair dryer.
Suites: A first for MSC is the Yacht Club, with 99 suites that have access to a private lounge with complimentary bar and a sun deck with swimming pool, bar, and small buffet. Depending on the configuration, some do not have balconies, but all have access to a concierge and butler service, including laundry, dry-cleaning, and pressing services. Amenities include a Nintendo Wii console pillow menu, complimentary minibar, Egyptian cotton sheets, slippers and robe during the cruise, walk-in closets, and marble bathrooms with bathtubs. Standard suites compare in size to minisuites on most cruise ships. Beyond their additional size, they feature a combination tub-shower in the bathroom, plenty of storage in a walk-in closet, and a sitting area.
Amenities: Bathrooms are supplied with MSC Cruises' own brand of shampoo, bath gel, and soaps, plus a handy sewing repair kit.
Worth Noting: 43 cabins are wheelchair accessible, including two in the MSC Yacht Club.
