MSC Cruises is set to feature seven different live productions onboard its newest ship MSC Euribia, which will depart on its maiden voyage on 8 June 2023 from Copenhagen, Denmark.
The newbuild is the fifth ship in the line’s Meraviglia class and will offer a range of entertainment in both its Delphi Theatre and Carousel Lounge.
The Delphi Theatre will offer a seven-day programme of stage shows including ‘Circus 1920’, which MSC Cruises says will feature “death-defying” performers, and ‘Generation Rock’ that will showcase sounds from rock legends such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Kiss, AC/DC and Journey.
Guests will also be able to watch ‘Illuminicty’, a show set within a video game, as well as fictional Las Vegas showroom ‘Jukebox L!ve’ and ‘Song Book – Ed Sheeran’, which will celebrate the life of British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran with dancing, acrobatic and singing buskers performing to a playlist of his best hits.
Furthermore, guest entertainers, musicians and acrobats will showcase their collective talents alongside a resident cast in the ‘Variety’ show, which will change according to the destinations that the ship visits. A ‘Guest Entertainer’ show will be the seventh live production.
The Carousel Lounge is designed as a multi-functional space with both indoor and outdoor areas and will host a range of leisure activities from day to night, including tables games, ballroom dancing and live music. MSC Cruises’ newest entertainment concept Big Band at Sea – a group of 19 in-house musicians and singers – will host three live performances each night at the Carousel Lounge. Each show will be themed around different genres of music including swing, jazz, rock, disco and musicals, and visiting guest acts will join to perform one-off concerts.
The Carousel Lounge also has two covered terraces where guests can enjoy food and drinks throughout the day.
“We are so excited to announce our fun-filled entertainment offerings on our much-anticipated new flagship, MSC Euribia,” said Steve Leatham, global head of entertainment at MSC Cruises. “Entertainment is a fundamental part of MSC Cruises’ guest experience and we’re always looking for new, engaging ways to delight our guests of all ages. We strive to create exceptional and immersive concepts combined with varied entertainment programmes to ensure that our guests will remember their cruise as the ultimate holiday experience.”
