MSC chooses composers theme for MSC Virtuosa’s decks
March 7, 2020

In less than eight months the new MSC Cruises’ flagship MSC Virtuosa will officially enter in service.

MSC Virtuosa, currently under construction at Chantier de l’Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire, France, is the fourth ship of the innovative Meraviglia generation and the second of the Meraviglia-Plus class, an enriched project with more cabins, more public space and some new features, like a longer Galleria, iconic Mediterranean Promenade with an 98.5-metre-long LED sky under which guests can enjoy a varied entertainment programme as well as being able to shop, eat and drink.

MSC Virtuosa’s 14 public decks will follow the common theme of composers. Among the renowned names we can see the main Italian opera composer Giuseppe Verdi, Claude Debussy, the first Impressionist composer and Richard Wagner, one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era. MSC has dedicated one deck also to Ennio Morricone, who composed over 400 scores for cinema and television, in particular the latest two MSC global brand campaigns.

Here are the names.
