Speciality Dining
Whilst sailing on an MSC cruise, you’re never short of opportunities to sample delicious cuisines from across the world. And the variety of mouth-watering food being served across our many restaurants means that our cruises provide gastronomic experiences not to be missed. Serving a variety of options, the specialist restaurants onboard will take you around the globe, from the Mediterranean to Asia, and from steakhouses to seafood. The best way to guarantee your amazing culinary experience is to book onto a dining package, available now with a discounted pre-board rate.

New restaurants
The Butchers Cut will be serving up all prime cuts, bold wines from the new world, and punchy cocktails aboard MSC Preziosa and MSC Divina from the 20th April, and will arrive on MSC Fantasia by 12th May. Highly satisfied customers drove the decision to introduce the restaurant to more ships in the MSC fleet.

MSC Preziosa will be sailing around European ports from Norway to France during the summer season of 2019. As the ship sails all over Europe, guests will experience what an MSC cruise is all about with a packed range of entertainment and dining options available. By winter 2019, it will have relocated to the Caribbean, and guests will be able to soak up the winter sun. The MSC Preziosa joined the fleet in 2013 and can accommodate 3,500 passengers.

MSC Divina
is set to sail the Mediterranean this summer before relocating for the winter to cover destinations in Cuba and the Caribbean. The ship boasts a real stone piazza and is designed to show guests the elegance and glamour from the golden age of cruise lines. The ship was named Divina to honour the godmother to all MSC ships, Sophia Loren.

MSC Fantasia will serve Mediterranean routes in the summer of 2019 but come the winter will be in South America, taking her guests to the vibrant cities of Rio De Janeiro and Buenos Aires.

MSC Meraviglia
has taken a slightly different approach to our other ships. One of the new speciality restaurants arriving onboard is the Ocean Cay, a fine dining fish restaurant created by world renowned chef Ramon Freixa, with only be 32 seats. We would strongly recommend pre-booking! The other culinary marvel coming to MSC Meraviglia is HOLA! Tapas. Also created by Ramon Freixa, he has woven his two Michelin star magic into the Spanish-style spot. MSC Meraviglia is spending the summer months taking guests across the globe as part of MSC Grand Voyages, crossing oceans to allow the guests to explore a whole range of exotic locations. By the winter, MSC Meraviglia will be transporting winter sun seekers across the Caribbean.

The wide variety of speciality restaurants available throughout the MSC fleet ensures there is a whole range of cuisines to choose from, with scintillating dishes making eating in a speciality restaurant an experience not to be missed. Guests are available to pre-book a table before arriving onboard and, given their popularity, booking ahead is strongly recommended to ensure you can enjoy this fine dining.
