Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows created exclusively for MSC Cruises

MSC Cruises has partnered with Cirque du Soleil to offer a unique onboard entertainment experience.

Back in 2013 Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of MSC Cruises, had the vision to take the entertainment offered on board to the next level. Since MSC Cruises always seeks to work with innovative, world-class leaders, it was only natural to approach Cirque du Soleil. 


This partnership with the world leader in live entertainment will see a total of eight original shows produced exclusively for MSC Cruises’ four Meraviglia generation ships. The first two shows are currently available on board MSC Meraviglia and now, two brand news shows are coming to MSC Bellissima starting March 2019. 

Six nights per week, this entertainment experience takes place in the a multi-million euro, custom-made entertainment and dining venue, the Carousel Lounge, where guests will be able to enjoy dinner or cocktails and then enjoy a Cirque du Soleil at Sea performance (not included with the cruise fare. Additional cost applies, unless otherwise stated)

Cirque du Soleil set out to create two very different shows; VIAGGIO and SONOR, each with a unique concept, ambiance, storyline, costumes and make-up.

SONOR will take guests on an auditory adventure, a world of unique sensations and astonishing sounds, whilst VIAGGIO will immerse guests in a poetic adventure into the world of colour, following a painter’s journey into his imagination.
