Geneva, Switzerland – May 25, 2022 – An enhanced MSC Yacht Club will be among the new features on board the highly anticipated MSC World Europa when the ship debuts later this year as the first of MSC Cruises’ trailblazing "World Class" ships. The all-new World Class platform boasts future-proof marine and onboard hospitality technologies as well as a ground-breaking and ultramodern design.
The MSC Yacht Club’s innovative “ship within a ship” concept was first introduced in 2008, offering an all-inclusive cruise experience that set a new standard for premium cruising. It offers guests privacy and exclusivity, while still allowing them to enjoy all the facilities a larger ship can offer. MSC Cruises seeks to enrich and enhance that experience with every new ship, meaning MSC Yacht Club guests on MSC World Europa will find unparalleled levels of comfort, along with more public space, expanded outdoor areas, stylish new suites and a futuristic design.
Key Highlights of the MSC Yacht Club on MSC World Europa include:
A totally reimagined sundeck – Guests will have plenty of space spread across two decks to enjoy spectacular sea views from the front of the ship. The lower deck allows them to unwind and sip a glass of champagne from the bar or enjoy a bite to eat from the grill, while the upper deck is home to a private pool and whirlpool where guests can take in the sun from comfortable loungers or one of the stylish private cabanas.
Two brand-new ultra-spacious Owner-Suites – Exclusive to World Class ships, these luxurious multi-room suites total more than 1,600 square feet between indoor areas and the private balcony. The plush accommodations consist of a double bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, a bathroom complete with full-sized imperial bathtub, and a separate living-dining area bathed in light from floor-to-ceiling windows. For the ultimate VIP experience, guests step onto their own spacious balcony with al fresco dining area and whirlpool.
Double-balcony Duplex Suites – Spanning two decks, the Duplex Suites offer a whole floor dedicated to luxurious relaxation with a dining area, lounge and guest bathroom. Heading upstairs, the main bedroom has its own bathroom complete with bathtub. These special duplex suites offer two private sundecks. The lower deck offers a private whirlpool bath, seating, and lounge area, while the upper deck provides sunbathing with comfortable loungers.
Dedicated massage rooms – Guests staying in the MSC Yacht Club will have access to exclusive massage rooms in the cutting-edge MSC Aurea Spa, as well as unlimited use of the thermal area to pamper the days away.
The MSC Yacht Club experience
Key-card access grants those staying in the MSC Yacht Club exclusive access to the private lounge, which serves unlimited complimentary drinks and gourmet canapés. Guests also enjoy access to the private fine-dining restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features an à la carte menu with chef’s specials and a wide choice of gourmet dishes complemented by an extensive wine list.
These elegant spaces, designed with the future in mind, offer uninterrupted panoramic views from the very front of the ship. After relaxing with a glass of champagne to live music, a traditional afternoon tea or after a day exploring ashore, guests can retire to their spacious and beautifully designed suite.
Fully personalized service comes as standard, with access to a 24-hour butler who will quickly get to know each guest’s personal preferences with warm, friendly and unobtrusive service. A dedicated concierge is also on-hand to facilitate any request from dinner and spa reservations to a daily newspaper delivery. No request is too big or too small.
Completing the exclusive feeling is a private sundeck with pool, comfortable sun loungers, shady cabanas and whirlpool. The nearby bar and grill offer a well-deserved cocktail, a glass of bubbly or a light bite.
