Experience a trip to outer space
We are constantly researching the latest technology and trends to create unique experiences for our guests. And on MSC Virtuosa, we have done just that! Featuring Rob, the industry-first humanoid robotic bartender, the MSC Starship Club takes you to a different world.
This futuristic venue is much more than just a bar. It's a themed immersive entertainment experience for all guests. As you sip a cocktail and gaze out of the portholes across the galaxy, Rob and his human colleagues will transport you to an exciting new dimension.
The futuristic space experience comes to life at the MSC Starship Club, travelling in the solar system and beyond, letting the Guests discover exciting new planets. You will experience how futuristic onboard and ashore activities will look like on MSC’s unique Space Cruises, creating a compelling and holistic experience.
Meet Rob, your humanoid robotic bartender
Exclusive to MSC Virtuosa, Rob is highly sociable and loves interacting with people. Not only can he mix a range of signature cocktails and countless personalized ones, exactly as a human bartender would do, he also speaks 8 languages, and enjoys entertaining guests with jokes, riddles and space facts. If he's in the mood, he may even show you his dance moves!
Rob is indeed at the centre of the space-themed lounge with a futuristic atmosphere created by digital screens, holograms, Space Dashboard interactive table and other lights, sounds and special effects. Futuristic content will be displayed all around, showing a glimpse of the future of space cruises. The entire area will offer a theatrical and immersive experience as Rob’s skills and emotional responsiveness combined with waiters and bartenders dressed as if they’ve just stepped out of a sci-fi movie, will create a continuously engaging performance in the area.
Choose a signature cosmic cocktail or create your own
As the first fully themed bar on board a MSC Cruises ship, the MSC Starship Club naturally serves its own signature selection of specially created "cosmic cocktails". You can even create your own customized drink using a variety of top-quality ingredients and choosing among 3 different mixing methods: build, stir or shake.
All cocktails in the MSC Starship Club are served in custom-designed futuristic glasses, which you can take home as a special souvenir of your journey through space, free of charge.
