MSC Cruises Reveals Concepts For The Two New Cirque Du Soleil Shows Exclusively On Board MSC Meraviglia

MSC Cruises revealed the names and concepts for the two exclusive Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows that will be performed on board MSC Cruises' new next-generation flagship, MSC Meraviglia.


The long-term partnership between MSC Cruises and Cirque du Soleil will set new standards in live entertainment at sea. The world leader in artistic entertainment will create a total of eight original shows exclusively available on MSC Cruises' Meraviglia generation ships, coming into service between June 4, 2017 – with MSC Meraviglia – and Fall 2020. "We are committed to creating unique opportunities that elevate the guest experience to new heights and, for this, we work with innovative, world-class leaders in their sector. It was thus only natural that, when it comes to entertainment, we would look to partner with Cirque du Soleil," said Gianni Onorato, Chief Executive Officer of MSC Cruises.

 “Today we are delighted to reveal the concepts and inspiration behind the Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows that will soon premiere on our new flagship MSC Meraviglia. By creating two different shows for each of the four Meraviglia and Meraviglia-plus generation ships, we will make available exclusively to our guests something new and exciting with each ship’s launch. Moreover, these shows will be a true first at sea,” added Onorato. “After years of hard work, our team is very excited to unveil the names and visuals of the two first productions of our partnership with MSC; two concepts very different from one another, both showcasing Cirque du Soleil’s ‘savoir-faire’,” explained Yasmine Khalil, President of 45 DEGREES, Cirque du Soleil’s events and special projects company. “Guests of MSC Meraviglia are definitely in for a treat!”
