MSC CRUISES STATEROOMS CATEGORIES
Interior Studio. MSC Cruises is among the few companies that have staterooms for solo cruise lovers. Interior Studio has everything to feel comfortable during your voyage.
Please note that this type of stateroom is available on MSC Meraviglia and MSC Bellissima only.
Interior. It is an excellent option for those who are going to spend a minimum of time in the cabin. Although MSC Cruise Inside cabin doesn’t have a window, it looks very cozy and has everything to provide a good sleep before the eventful day.
Ocean View. If you can't imagine sailing without the beautiful view of the sea but still want to save money for onboard and ashore attractions, you can try this option with the window. Stylish interior and comfortable furniture of MSC Ocean View cabin make you feel at home.
BTW, there are also Ocean View staterooms with a partial/obstructed view. They cost much cheaper.
Balcony. The MSC Cruise Balcony cabin has a private... balcony. Yes, it’s obvious. As obvious as advantages of this category of cruise staterooms. We’re going to devote a separate article to this topic soon, so stay tuned!
But let’s get back to the subject of this review. Balcony Staterooms on MSC Cruises’ liners are very similar to Suites. The only difference as they are smaller in size.
By the way, the company offers several options for big families: you can choose various types of 2 or even 3 connecting cabins to have a memorable vacation with your family of up to 10 travelers.
Now it’s time to talk about the cruise line’s most luxurious accommodation – about MSC CRUISES SUITES. Let’s check their types and features.
Suite. Suite is a more spacious variant of the Balcony Cabin, and this means more private space to have a friendly chat and admire the beautiful scenery.
Please note that some Suites have a panoramic sealed window instead of the verandah. Besides, some Suites are angle rooms.
Suite with Private Whirlpool. How about an own whirlpool right on your verandah. Just imagine yourself relaxing in the soft bathing water with a glass of champagne and admiring the sunset. It sounds inspiring, doesn’t it?
Grand Suite. MSC Cruises’ Grand Suite has separate areas to sleep and to discuss this day and plan the next one. Other amenities include a spacious wardrobe, and the verandah, of course.
BTW, there are several Wellness Grand Suites where guests can not just relax but also keep fit with the help of specialized equipment.
Two-Bedroom Grand Suite. This Suite with 2 bedrooms can become home for up to 5 cruise lovers. Did we mention that it also has 2 bathrooms?
