   August 28, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

The newest vessel in the MSC Cruises fleet scheduled to launch in November, MSC Grandiosa, will host the first fine art experience onboard a cruise ship in the world.

The immersive art & dining experience featuring “Degas Danse Dessin” is aiming to bring passengers closer to the world of fine art via a spellbinding exhibition of Impressionist art.

Sheltered in a purpose-built installation within the L’Atelier Bistro at the heart of the vessel’s Mediterranean-style Promenade, Edgar Degas exhibition is the first-ever curation of the unique collection onboard a cruise ship.

The Danse Dessin series features 26 studies of dance and movement and was previously exhibited in popular international museums and galleries. Degas’ work encapsulates the soul of romantic Paris, fitting within the setting of the French Bistro on MSC Grandiosa. It will offer an immersive experience for passengers with 5 videos running alongside the artwork.
