GENEVA — MSC Cruises’ new Flexi Dining concept will be available first to guests onboard MSC Meraviglia and MSC Seaside and will include a range of dining packages that can be booked prior to the cruise, meaning agents can earn more commission for pre-paid packages.
Key features of the new dining concepts include:
- Guests can pre-select a time slot for their evening meal, with the ability to change it at any point during their cruise. Available first on MSC Meraviglia (debuting June 2017) and MSC Seaside (December 2017).
MSC’s Classic cruise dining experience will still be available, with a choice of two seatings each evening. In addition, MSC Yacht Club guests will continue to benefit from free-time dining in the dedicated MSC Yacht Club restaurant, with the option of reserving a table in advance. Casual dining venues are available for all guests 20 hours a day.
- New specialty dining options onboard MSC Meraviglia will include the Kaito Teppanyaki restaurant and Butcher’s Cut American steakhouse, along with sweet treat venues like Jean-Philippe Chocolat & Café, an open chocolate atelier, and Jean-Philippe Crêpes & Gelato. New specialty dining options onboard MSC Seaside including the Asian Market Kitchen by Roy Yamaguchi and the Ocean Kay seafood restaurant.
Both MSC Meraviglia and MSC Seaside will feature restaurants with open kitchens, following the trend in restaurant design. Selected restaurants on MSC Meraviglia and MSC Seaside will also feature a Chef’s Table, a dining concept designed for those seeking a true gastronomic experience, says MSC.
- Partnerships with World Class Chefs like celebrity chef and pan-Asian pioneer, Roy Yamaguchi, and award-winning pastry chef, Jean-Philippe Maury.
