The new ships these days are always innovating and brining new things on board. The MSC Meraviglia has a formula 1 racer experience, a bowling alley, an XD Cinema, flight simulators, arcades, and a sportsplex where you can play basketball, tennis, volleyball, pickle ball, mini golf, and more !

Kids and Teens have their own private clubs where you can drop your kids off and know they will have a great day. One of my favorite things about cruises is the great rooms and programs they offer for kids. They will run off and be independent so everyone can enjoy their own type of vacation.

Adults can play in the casino or one of the 13+ bars and lounges on board. There are 11 different entertainment areas on board with lounges, clubs, and theater shows! There are 7 different productions available to enjoy on your trip so there is so much amazing and unique live entertainment available.

The ship has a solarium, bridge ropes courses, whirlpools, indoor and outdoor pools and of course, my favorite, water slides!


One thing that doesn't happen on a cruise is going hungry! There are 11 restaurants on board from Butcher's Cut an American Steakhouse to Kaito Sushi & Teppenyani. There are casual dining locations and fine dining options for everything you could want and more. Of course, they also have the huge buffets available as well which are always a favorite. You will certainly always have tons of food and options at your fingertips at any moment of your trip.

Visit the beautiful coastline beaches on the MSC Meraviglia


Set sail from New York City and experience multiple different locations.

Head up the North East Coastline with stops in New England and Canada at historic and scenic landmarks in Boston, Rhode Island, and more. Visit the beautiful Nova Scotia coastline and the charming fishing villages and beaches in Canada or head to tropical destinations like Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Some itineraries will even have stops or overnight stays at their private island Ocean Cay!


MSC Cruises are a great cruise line to choose whether you are going with friends, a family, or just looking for a romantic couple. There is so many different things to do on and off the cruise and it is the perfect vacation if you're looking for fun and sightseeing.
