Passengers who book a suite in the MSC Yacht Club, available aboard select MSC vessels, receive exclusive benefits and the highest levels of personalized service. This "ship within a ship" is located at the most desirable part of the vessel, the upper forward decks, and it's comprised of a few dozen well-appointed suites, a private lounge and pool deck and a 24-hour concierge desk. All of this can be accessed only by guests possessing a Yacht Club card key.
Rates for this special category of accommodations include complimentary select wines, spirits and beer in Yacht Club venues. Soft drinks, mineral water and specialty coffees are complimentary as well. Yacht Clubbers also have access to a specialty restaurant reserved just for them, where gourmet, multicourse meals are served nightly.
The royal treatment starts when you arrive at the pier, as a white-gloved butler greets you and walks you through a quick and easy check-in, with no waiting in line. Your butler will see to your every need and comfort during the cruise and can unpack suitcases, take care of laundry requests, shine your shoes, assure that your favorite newspaper is delivered and more.
The Yacht Club concierges will take priority reservations for shore excursions, arrange private tours, make onboard spa appointments and set up after-hours shopping trips in the ship's boutiques.
Yacht Club guests relax in the Top Sail Lounge, which is wrapped in panoramic windows and overlooks the bow of the ship; it's a superb spot for watching an approach to port. Light fare is served here throughout the day, from continental breakfasts to elegantly plated hors d'oeuvres in the evening. The Yacht Club's expansive One Pool deck is a tranquil spot with a pool, Jacuzzis, plenty of loungers, a bar and a small buffet for hot lunches. You'll receive private access to the Aurea Spa, too, where the thermal suite is complimentary.
MSC Yacht Club suites are sumptuously outfitted with Egyptian cotton sheets by Italian linen company Mascioni, your choice of pillows, plush robes and slippers. You'll also find a minibar stocked with complimentary beverages and an interactive television and Nintendo Wii console.
MSC's exclusive Yacht Club Suites start at approximately $1,499 per person for a 7-night cruise and can only be quoted over the phone. Call an MSC specialist at 800-338-4962 with the ship name and sail date.
