MSC Yacht Club
If you feel like pampering yourself to the highest degree, the MSC Yacht Club is where you’ll find it. The exclusive MSC Yacht Club can be located on many MSC ships and is where you can savour exclusivity and privacy away from the noise and bustle of the outside world.
This is where you indulge in the luxury of a private club while still enjoying all the sea's recreation and entertainment possibilities. It is the best of both worlds.
Lavishly appointed suites, exclusive 24-hour butler service and a dedicated concierge, are just the beginning of these exclusive cruise experiences. Welcome to the MSC Yacht Club, a cruise experience like no other.
You can discover the ultimate in MSC exclusivity with the MSC Yacht Club, selectively available on board: MSC Bellissima, MSC Divina, MSC Euribia, MSC Fantasia, MSC Grandiosa, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Preziosa, MSC Seascape, MSC Seashore, MSC Seaside, MSC Seaview, MSC Splendida, MSC Virtuosa and MSC World Europa.
A sea adventure is just the start. While cruising under a perfect blue sky and lounging by the pool with a cocktail in hand is what a cruise is all about, it’s often the day trips ashore you remember the most.
Whether you prefer adventure, nature, culture, or history, MSC Cruises will work with you to find the perfect shore excursions suitable for the whole family. Discover the rich and fascinating backgrounds of your destinations with a Culture & History excursion, experience breathtaking views that will leave your mouth hanging open on a Scenic Route, get an adrenaline hit with an Active & Adventure tour, relax in the beauty of Natural Wonders, kick back in a Sea & Sun Relax, enjoy a Something Special experience, or take an Accessible Tour and take in the destination at your own pace.
MSC Cruises have also created the Excursions Explorer Package, MSC Bike Adventours, and MSC PROTECTOURS – a series of sustainable excursions exclusive to MSC (available on selected MSC Cruises itineraries only).

Our planet is under threat, and we all need to do something to help. MSC believes the cruising industry needs to take things much more seriously, so they’re putting sustainability at the heart of everything they do.
Their ships now use cleaner fuels, while they’re also working carefully with their onshore partners to ensure that excursions are as sustainable and non-intrusive as possible. Onboard, guests will use state-of-the-art water treatment facilities (without even realising it), and restaurants constantly strive to implement greener, more sustainable concepts.
MSC cruise ships are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible at sea - this is their commitment to the future of this planet.
