MSC Cruises announced a long-term partnership with Cirque du Soleil. A new show will be created onboard its new Meraviglia class cruise ships.
The show will be performed inside the ships' purpose-built 450-seat Aft Lounges, each of which includes a 200-seat restaurant.
The Cirque du Soleil productions will take place six nights a week during sailings, with two performances each night.
MSC Cruises has four Meraviglia project ships in the pipeline with the first – MSC Meraviglia – currently under construction at the STX shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France.
Further Meraviglia project ships are scheduled for delivery in 2019, 2020 and 2022.
