MSC Grandiosa, the newest ship in the MSC Cruises fleet set to launch in November, will host the world’s first fine art experience on board a cruise ship. The immersive art and dining experience featuring “Degas Danse Dessin” aims to bring guests closer to the world of fine art with a spellbinding exhibition of original Impressionist art.
With each new ship that MSC Cruises launches, the company aims to elevate the guest experience with new and unique elements that cannot be experienced anywhere else at sea. On board MSC Grandiosa, the Italian cruise line is bringing the world of fine art and technology together to create a one-of-a-kind entertainment offering exclusively for guests, bringing them closer to the world of art.
Housed in a purpose-built installation within the chic L’Atelier Bistro, at the heart of the ship’s Mediterranean-style Promenade, the Edgar Degas exhibition is the first curation of this unique collection on board a cruise ship.
The Danse Dessin series presents 26 studies of movement and dance and was previously exhibited in major international galleries and museums.
Degas’ work encapsulates the soul of a romantic Paris, truly fitting within the setting of the new French Bistro on board MSC Grandiosa. It will also offer an immersive experience for guests with five videos running alongside the artwork detailing details of Degas’ work and life.
MSC Grandiosa will become the new flagship in the MSC Cruises fleet when she launches in November and the state-of-the-art ship will offer a richness of experiences for every guest from world-class entertainment with brand new Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows, a wide choice of international dining options, new activities for families through to an enhanced MSC Yacht Club.
MSC Grandiosa will become the second MSC Cruises ship to feature ZOE, the world’s first virtual cruise personal assistant and new updated to the innovative MSC for Me digital innovation programme, helping guests to get the most out of their cruise holiday.
