MSC Bellissima

MSC Bellissima is sister ship to MSC Cruises’ MSC Meraviglia and offers modern Mediterranean-style cruise holidays with an enhanced onboard experience. Built in 2017, the second ship from MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia generation possesses innovative technology, extraordinary entertainment, extensive dining options and superb family facilities. One of her fantastic features is ZOE, the in-cabin, voice-activated cruise assistant. Simply say 'OK Zoe', and follow up with just about any question about your cruise.

The heart of MSC Bellissima is the indoor promenade, known as Galleria Bellissima. This spans two decks and houses many great places to eat, drink, and shop. This social hub of the ship is illuminated by a dazzling 260 ft long LED skydome, displaying atmospheric visuals and digital magic. In the evenings the promenade comes to life with street party vibes and lively community spirit.

A restful and comfortable night onboard goes without saying as you will find a wide variety of staterooms and suites with options for absolute comfort, wellness and luxury, as well as family options including connecting cabins to make things that bit easier for those travelling with younger guests.

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 Buffet 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.


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.

Customer reviews for MSC Bellissima

was on the bellissima lovely ship but make sure you are able to see deck plan before you book I wasn,t and the agent pick my room it must have been the worst room on ship under buffet restaurant never slept for the whole week When I complaint on ship was subsidise with 100euros since then I have been intouch with agent and msc complaints no joy Be aware !!!!

Went in this ship October from Barcelona. Never again all I can say food and staff very good. That’s all the positive I have got to say. Ship far to big

Went on 28 June, Beautiful ship, Yes it's noisy in buffet Restraunt, but doesn't spoil your cruise. Food in buffet was fine, but some food such as Chilli, and Pizzas which had bacon, meat was all day, but you can just get something else, but MSC need to take note. Main Restraunt was lovely, you where made too feel special and looked after well. Food choice was about 6 dishes or they would make you something, on request. West end style shows each evening which are free. We had Inside cabin for our first cruise beautiful and room service fantastic staff work hard throughout the ship, long hours, some looked tired, as they work 7 days a week 12 hour days, so give them some understanding and respect. I took a normal 2 piece suite, shirt and tie, but as long as your smart for the main restaraunt you'll be fine. Trips from ship sent really long enough i.e Pompeii, which was only 1.20 mins as we also went to Sorrento, so bear that in mind when planning your trips. Porta Fino is a must go trip. Where going on the same ship beginning of March to Dubai, so it must be good. P.S plenty of sun loungers with plenty of room, but the pool area is a busy place.
