MSC is an Australian cruise line with a distinctly Italian flavour, which is reflected in the ships' décor, menu flavours and service. While cruisers enjoy this continental sophistication, MSC is perhaps better known as an international cargo shipping company. Far removed from their freighter sisters, MSC cruise ships are purpose-built medium size ships that sail to destinations in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America and South Africa, in addition to transoceanic cruises.
MSC has a 12 strong fleet with two flagships, and the emphasis is on stylish sophistication, with no sign of over-the-top or gaudy interiors. Instead, it's simple, elegant and warm. Evening entertainment hints at Mediterranean, and staff are renowned for being exceedingly friendly and welcoming, especially to single cruisers who are made to feel like old friends. MSC places great emphasis on their corporate social and environmental responsibilities and have received industry accolades in recognition of this.
