Built in 2004 and refurbished in 2015, this 65,591 tons luxury cruise ship carries 2,579 passengers. MSC Opera is equipped to surpass every cruiser’s desire. The children will enjoy Chicco, LEGO, and Namco areas just for them, plus the Doremi Spray Park for fun in the sun. The MSC Aurea Spa is jam packed with places to relax, including the thalassotherapy pool, a Turkish bath, a spa relaxation room, massage areas and a fully equipped gymnasium. Between La Cabala Piano Bar, the Cotton Club, Piazza Di Spagna, Lo Spinnaker Bar, Aroma Coffee Bar and Sottovento Pub, there are plenty of places to relax and have an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink. Byblos Disco and Med Pearl Casino offer thrills for after the sun has set. The by-booking-only dell’opera Theater is a reimagination of theaters on traditional lines. You can also head over to the Internet Point to check up with family at home, or visit one of the many duty-free shops for a souvenir.
