Are there special menus for gluten-free guests or for those with food allergies/intolerances?
Guests with a food intolerance and/or allergies must inform MSC Cruises of their needs via the Special Needs Form and, once on board, confirm their requirements at Reception-Guest Service and/or with the Maître d’hôtel.

MSC Cruises has obtained a certification from Bureau Veritas to provide gluten-free menus worldwide (food code: 20 ppm) in the main restaurants of MSC Divina, MSC Fantasia, MSC Magnifica, MSC Meraviglia, MSC Musica, MSC Orchestra, MSC Poesia, MSC Preziosa, MSC Splendida.
On Lirica class guests can find only pre-packaged gluten-free snacks such as, biscuits, croissants, sponge cakes and muffins. Once MSC Seaside, MSC Seaview and MSC Bellissima are launched, we will complete the certification process with Bureau Veritas that will allow us to offer gluten-free menus on these ships as well. Please check availability of gluten-free menus at time of booking.
Pre-packed Kosher meals and high-quality Halal products (beef, lamb and poultry) are available if requested at least two months before departure.
Can I bring my mobility scooter on board?
Yes, you can. Scooters must be stored and batteries recharged in your stateroom (avoiding to connect when using the hairdryer). Keep in mind that the scooter minimizes the available space within your stateroom.
Due to safety considerations, wheelchairs and scooters cannot be stored in the corridors. Your personal scooter should be able to fit in a standard stateroom with a limited entry doorway (58 cm/22.8 in. on MSC Divina and MSC Armonia, 68 cm/26.7 in. on MSC Lirica, MSC Sinfonia and MSC Opera, 62 cm/24.4 in on the others). If your scooter is larger than the dimension reported for your chosen ship, you should book a handicapped (H) stateroom or rent a smaller scooter. Segways and other similar vehicles cannot be operated on board. They shall be confiscated and can be taken off the ship to be used while in port.
