MSC VIRTUOSA

MSC Virtuosa’s namesake comes from the word virtuoso, meaning someone highly skilled in any field of activity, and so MSC Virtuosa was named to pay homage to the skill and expertise of the MSC Cruises architects and shipyard partners at Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique who designed and built this innovative class of ships. This new cruise ship is one of the two largest in MSC Cruises’ fleet, along with her sister ship MSC Grandiosa, boasting an impressive array of guest features all coming together in perfect harmony to deliver the ultimate cruise vacation experience. 
 

MSC Virtuosa to perform her maiden voyage around the British Isles with embarkation ports in Southampton and Liverpool, plus in Scotland with Glasgow’s cruise port at Greenock.
All departures, including mini cruises, are available to UK residents only of all ages both vaccinated and unvaccinated.
