MSC Grand Voyages

A Grand Voyage is more than an exclusive ocean cruise to some of the most exciting cities and natural wonders in the world. It is also a journey into another dimension and another time. A time where life is measured in moments, not minutes.

While you’re crossing the Atlantic towards the pleasures of the Caribbean, Florida or Brazil, rounding West Africa en route to cosmopolitan Cape Town, savouring the sensations of the Mediterranean, you’ll have oceans of time.

Time to linger in the moment. And time to devote to your interests, exploring the passions that modern life rarely leaves room for. Because a Grand Voyage is more than a voyage of discovery, it is also a voyage of self-discovery.

That’s why you’ll find a diverse program of special events and classes on board, hosted by experts on everything from dancing and cooking to the languages and cultures of our destinations. Not forgetting a full range of entertainment and recreational pursuits for you to get involved in.

So if you’re ready to discover a world of new experiences, now is the perfect time.

DISCOVER A WORLD BEYOND TIME

A Grand Voyage is more than an exclusive ocean cruise to some of the most exciting cities and natural wonders in the world. It is more than a chance to explore new countries and encounter new cultures. It’s also a golden opportunity to dedicate time to yourself, rediscovering the passions that modern life rarely leaves time for.

SAVOUR EVERY MOMENT

Every Grand Voyage is a journey into another dimension and another time. A time where you can live and linger in the moment, where there is no limit to the space you have for yourself and to explore your interests. Because we believe that life should be measured in moments, not minutes. And that every moment should be savoured.
