One of the highlights of MSC Virtuosa‘s onboard entertainment will be the two brand new Cirque du Soleil at Sea shows, created exclusively for MSC Cruises’ guests. MSC Virtuosa gives guests the best experience with its expanding digital offer, spearheaded by MSC for Me and our digital cruise assistant, Zoe.
