what's it like being back on board?

Our flagship MSC Grandiosa was the first ship from our fleet back at sea, as early as August 16th last year, with a stringent new health and safety protocol.


Thanks to these measures, embarking on one of our ships is like entering a "safe bubble", and vacationing with us is relaxing, enjoyable and unique as ever. But don't take our word for it: just have a look at what our Guests back at sea on MSC Grandiosa are saying! Many of them remarked on the peace of mind provided by the new health and safety protocol, while others were just happy to be on board again, enjoying the experience of holidaying with us.



"Amazing, as always! MSC pampers you even more... As I hoped and imagined, everything is beautiful!"

“If I were to give a grade, MSC truly deserves perfection.”

“It’s a fantastic 5-star luxury holiday.”

“The measures are stringent, but not annoying.”


"You are safe on board the MSC ships, they have provided great security measures!"

"It was my first cruise, and considering the period was COVID19, MSC has put in place an effective protocol, my and my wife's impression is positive. Even during the excursions the staff always behaved in a professional way (and... it wasn't easy). Congratulations!"

"I simply thank you for the wonderful experience that MSC has given me."

“I found the quality of the cuisine in the restaurants very high.”

 “Excursions were as beautiful as always. The highest level of safety is guaranteed.”

“We had a lot of fun. We would have liked it to last at least two weeks more.”

On board our ships, you too can experience a rich and unique cruise, while being looked after 24 hours a day by our attentive staff.  Enjoy world-class dining and drinking, great entertainment and loads of fun activities - while feeling protected by our safety bubble and discovering new destinations in total peace of mind.


All of this has been possible thanks to the new health and safety measures including COVID-19 screening and health monitoring for everyone before and during the cruise, protected shore excursions organized by MSC Cruises, the use of face masks, and social distancing. The ship is continuously cleaned and sanitized, and staff are fully trained in every aspect of the new protocol.
