MSC reveals the new YC crystal suite on board MSC Bellissima

MSC Cruises announced today that MSC Bellissima would now feature the world’s first crystal cabin adorned with glittering Swarovski crystals. The Swarovski staircases have been an iconic feature of MSC Cruises’ ships for more than ten years and with this new collaboration with Swarovski on board MSC Bellissima, this sensational cabin will bring a touch of extra sparkle and glamour to MSC Cruises beautiful flagship.

MSC Cruises modern and innovative ships are distinguished by the brand’s signature European style demonstrating a skillful use of marble, crystal and glass to create iconic design features. The collaboration with Swarovski spans more than ten years, when in 2008 the first iconic Swarovski staircases were unveiled on MSC Fantasia. Since then, the staircases have become a stand-out design feature on board eight ships in the fleet, including MSC Bellissima and are arguably the most photographed spot on the ship.

MSC Cruises’ Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago described the collaboration as a “symbol of sophistication on board MSC Cruises ships.”

The new crystal cabin will be situated in the MSC Yacht Club, the premium ship within a ship concept and will be recognisable thanks to a crystallised number on the outside of the cabin door. Every element has been carefully chosen to add elegant touches and complement the cabin design with 700,000 crystals used to embellish the space, including crystallized furniture, such as the bedside tables, sideboard and coffee table. The wall sconces have been specially designed, offering stunning lighting throughout the cabin. Even the walls have feature a touch of glamour, with beautiful coral artwork sparkling with crystals.

In addition to the new cabin and the 96 breath-taking steps with more than 61,000 crystals from Swarovski on board MSC Bellissima, other details include crystal detailed wallpaper in the MSC Yacht Club and a crystallized Active Panel illuminated by custom LED with 500,000 crystals per sqm built into the design of the Champagne Bar to add an extra touch of refinement to the sophisticated bar on deck 7.

The new crystal cabin developed in collaboration with Swarovski and De Jorio Design is sure to become a coveted addition to the all-inclusive MSC Yacht Club where guests can eat, drink, swim and sunbathe in a lavish, private club atmosphere while enjoying access to all the recreation opportunities offered throughout the ship. With 95 exclusive suites located in the prestigious foredecks of the ship and 24-hour butler and concierge service, the area serves as the perfect haven for guests to pamper themselves throughout the cruise.

The cabin will be available from mid-November.
