MSC Virtuosa’s namesake comes from the word virtuoso, meaning someone highly skilled in any field of activity, and so MSC Virtuosa was named to pay homage to the skill and expertise of the MSC Cruises architects and shipyard partners at Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique who designed and built this innovative class of ships. This new cruise ship is one of the two largest in MSC Cruises’ fleet, along with her sister ship MSC Grandiosa,  boasting an impressive array of guest features all coming together in perfect harmony to deliver the ultimate cruise holiday experience. Two brand new Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows or the first humanoid robotic bartender at sea are just few of the innovations on board of MSC Virtuosa, one of the most environmentally advanced ships at sea.
