Gala Night has always been one of the most anticipated events of a cruise with MSC Cruises and this summer the cruise line is relaunching the popular night. Gala Night will once again give guests the perfect excuse to don their favourite elegant outfit and join officers and crew for stylish events and exciting activities throughout the ship. The return of the most extravagant night of the cruise will include special dining experiences, unique performances, exclusive photo opportunities and memorable parties.  

Steve Leatham, Global Head of Entertainment at MSC Cruises: “With a variety of celebratory events taking place throughout the evening, Gala Night is the ideal setting for guests from all around the world to come together, feel special and celebrate – something that we have all dearly missed over the last two of years.”

The relaunch of Gala Night will feature a programme of celebratory events including elevated dining experiences, special spa offerings and photo opportunities that surprise and delight. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Pampering Services and Special Shopping Events – Special spa services will be available on Gala Night for guests to pamper themselves and prepare for the elegant events of the evening. The shops and boutiques on board will also host a Sparkle with Swarovski Glamour event showcasing unique jewelry pieces that will be available for guests to purchase and help commemorate the most extraordinary night onboard. After pampering themselves and dressing up, there will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout the ship for guests, including the chance to get a professional photo as a memento of the evening – either with the Captain or on the glamourous Swarovski stairs.
  • Upscale Dining Experiences – A Captain’s Welcome Cocktail and presentation will kick off the evening, honouring the crew and kicking off a night of celebratory events. After the Welcome Cocktail, a special Gala Dinner menu will be served in the main restaurant, giving guests an opportunity to toast to their waiters. The dinner will include live entertainment, a special dessert offering and a special thanks from the Captain to the dining staff.  
  • Theatre Show and Entertainment – The best production show of the cruise will take place on Gala Night, offering an awe-inspiring event for guests. Along with the show, live music will be available in various venues and activities throughout the ship will be scheduled to complement the evening. In addition to the return of Gala Night, MSC Cruises’ world class daily entertainment options are back in full force, rounding out the cruising experience for all ages.
