What is Included in the MSC Yacht Club?

However, there's still even more to MSC Yacht Club. In addition to all these exclusive onboard perks, Yacht Club guests visiting Ocean Cay – MSC Cruises' private island and one of the best cruise line private islands out there right now – can enjoy even more added extras. These include a concierge and towel service, access to private cabanas and a private Yacht Club beach, access to the exclusive Ocean House restaurant, unlimited drinks, and more. An entire area of this Caribbean resort is dedicated to Yacht Club guests, and you'll get an even more premium experience from the moment you arrive on the island.

Which Ships Have the MSC Yacht Club?

While available on most MSC Cruises ships, MSC Yacht Club is not available on every ship in this cruise line's fleet. So, if you're looking forward to taking advantage of everything on offer and enjoying a Yacht Club experience, it's worth checking whether the ship you're sailing on actually offers this unique upgrade.

One of the Yacht Club's biggest selling points, and really why you should consider it ahead of your next cruise, is the suites available exclusively to MSC Yacht Club guests. Accommodation within the MSC Yacht Club is lavishly appointed, beautifully designed, and incredibly spacious.

Within the staterooms, you’ll find everything you need for a truly relaxing night’s sleep including Egyptian cotton sheets, memory foam mattresses, a Dorlean pillow menu, and other opulent amenities guaranteed to impress. And, with a butler on hand 24 hours a day, your holiday will be relaxing from the moment you arrive on the ship.

Do You Get Free Drinks with MSC Yacht Club?

Top Sail Lounge, MSC World Europa

Can you upgrade to MSC Yacht Club onboard?

Yes, and it comes with a room change, too. When booking your cabin or suite, you can opt into MSC Cruises' Upgrade Programme. With this, you will be able to bid on any available cabins of a higher tier – including MSC Yacht Club suites – ahead of your cruise and try your luck at getting an improved experience at a discount. This isn't always available, as it depends on how many available cabins and suites there are on your sailing, and it's a bidding process, so you're not guaranteed an upgrade if you're eligible.

How much does MSC Yacht Club cost?

This entirely depends on the cruise you enjoy, as prices for MSC Yacht Club suites depend on the duration and destinations of your cruise as much as they do the ship you're on. So, while looking at the latest MSC cruises as an example, a three-night European cruise in an MSC Yacht Club Interior Suite can cost around £750 per person, meanwhile a 14-night cruise to the Canary Islands can cost anywhere from £6,000 per person upwards.

Is the MSC Yacht Club Worth it?

Well, that depends on what you're looking for and how much you're willing to spend to get it. Of course, by opting for a MSC Yacht Club suite, there's a higher cost attached than your standard cruise fare. However, the benefits speak for themselves and they're well worth looking into if you're after a more premium, upscale cruise experience.

Top Sail Lounge on MSC World Europa

With exclusive access to specialty restaurants and other-wise private parts of the ship, the MSC Yacht Club is fantastic if you're looking for an experience with fewer crowds – avoiding the hustle and bustle of the main dining buffet is never a bad thing in any case, after all. Lending itself, though, to the feeling of serenity and luxury away from the busyness of the rest of the ship, the benefits you can reap with the MSC Yacht Club are just as important as the experience itself.
