Ship Facilities


MSC Bellissima offers a great range of dining options. The traditional main restaurant has a daily-changing menu featuring Mediterranean-centred cuisine using seafood, fine cuts of meat, and vegetarian options. The 24-hour Marketplace has a fabulous selection of breakfast foods as well as lunch and dinner, and is available any time of day should you need a little energy boost! In addition, for something a little fancier, there are some great speciality restaurants:

  • L'Atelier Bistro offers delectable French cuisine
  • Hola! Tapas is a warm and friendly option serving tasty Spanish dishes
  • Butcher's Cut is your classic American-style steakhouse
  • Kaito Teppanyaki Restaurant & Sushi Bar has a great menu of delicate Japanese foods


MSC Bellissima’s entertainment programme is one of the best at sea with a wide variety of exciting things to see and do. Ideal for family holidays, cruisers of all ages will be able to find something to suit their pace while onboard.

The Carousel Lounge hosts spectacular entertainment twice nightly through an exclusive partnership with Cirque Du Soleil. Cirque Due Soleil has introduced two exclusive shows called Valerlia – Love in Full Colour- and SYMA- Sail Beyond Imagination. Valerlia is an intriguing show that unfolds into a futuristic twist whilst SYMA is a story about a sailor. The shows are specifically for guests onboard MSC Meraviglia generation ships, meaning they have the added treat of being the only cruise ship guests to experience these shows.

The ship’s TV Studio and Bar broadcasts live games and talent shows throughout the ship, also transforming into a live music venue hosting comedy, karaoke and more. For after hours, the Attic Club is a stylish venue for a nightcap or even a dance off if you don’t fancy going to bed yet.


Children aged from 1-17 are well catered for with dedicated kids clubs, secure spaces and age-appropriate activities. Babies can enjoy activities and games in collaboration with Chicco, kids from 3-11 can have fun with LEGO® and teens will find their own hangout space with games and a disco.

However, If the sun is shining and you're itching to be outside and spend some time together as a family, enjoy playing with your loved ones in the Aquapark splashing around in the swimming pools.

Things to do


When it comes to how to spend time onboard, MSC Bellissima leaves little to be desired. Deck 16 is the place to be for all things active, with a fantastic range of fun games to try such as:

  • F1 Simulator
  • Arcade
  • VR Mazes
  • Bowling Alley
  • Interactive 4D Cinema

There is also a sports bar found here, and a SportsPlex where guests can take part in sports like basketball and football.

On the other hand, if you want to spend your free time chilling out, you can pass the hours sunbathing with a book from the library, safe in the knowledge that a cocktail is never too far away. Be sure to find time to wander through the onboard shops, where you can pick up some great souvenirs and luxury items. Jean-Philippe Chocolat & Cafe is one especially popular boutique, selling fine chocolates to take home or to indulge in at the cafe.

Spa and fitness

The MSC Aurea Spa provides a tranquil place for ultimate relaxation onboard. This Balinese inspired spa offers a range of signature treatments to pamper the body and soul.

Good health and fitness can be achieved in the MSC Gym by Technogym® with state of the art Technogym® equipment for cardio and strength training. Fitness classes and training programmes are also available if you’d rather exercise in a group.

MSC Bellissima also features the MSC Yacht Club onboard. Find out more about the MSC Yacht Club by reading our blog - Is MSC Cruises’ Yacht Club Worth it?
