MSC Cruises’ Yacht Club is changing the meaning of life at sea

In Partnership with MSC Cruises

Comfort and class are at the helm of MSC Yacht Club, the elite offering from MSC Cruises that affords guests all the perks of a private yacht with the conveniences of a cruise ship. Available on eight of the Geneva-based cruise line’s fleet of luxury ships (including the brand-new Mediterranean-sailing MSC Bellissima, which will be unveiled in March) the MSC Yacht Club first-class experience begins with priority-access boarding. Once settled in your spacious suite — appointed with a marble bathroom, Egyptian cotton bedding and your choice of Dorelan pillows — escape to one of the club’s exclusive venues such as the lounge, restaurant, solarium and the One Pool Deck, where you’ll find a private swimming pool, whirlpool hot tubs, a sundeck and a bar. Of course, special on-land excursions and experiences, formulated especially for Yacht Club members, will be available once docked at your destination, but with all-inclusive dinner and drinks and 24-hour butler service on board, you’ll be hard-pressed to ever disembark. 7-night cruises from $1,109/person. msccruisesusa.com.
