The Thrill of World-Class Live Shows

The Thrill of World-Class Live Shows

Every night of your voyage with MSC Cruises can transport you into another world. A world that moves and enthrals. A world of glamour and imagination, music and spectacle. The world of MSC Show Time!

MSC Sinfonia boasts some of the best entertainment at sea. During your cruise, no two shows are the same. MSC Sinfonia’s large theatre ensures that each spectator has a comfortable, ‘front row’ quality seat. Guests can attend one of the two nightly seating plans, which are identical to the restaurant service seating plans. The performances are repeated twice each evening between 8:30 pm and 11:00 pm. Performance attendance is free for passengers on all ships and for all on board performances.


With 80 different original productions performed across the futuristic Broadway-scale designer theatres on every ship in our fleet, you can be sure to find a show you’ll love. In fact, every cruise offers at least 6 different shows -even on a 7-night cruise - featuring innovative world-class and standing-ovation productions created by accomplished Artistic Directors, Choreographers, Set Designers, Costume Designers and Lighting and Sound Engineers, together with gifted singers, dancers, acrobats and artistes from every corner of the world, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France, Italy, Kenya, Mongolia, Spain, Russia, the UK, Ukraine and Zimbabwe. How’s that for an international all-star cast?

Please note that for MSC Lirica, MSC Opera, MSC Sinfonia, MSC Armonia access to the theatre for the evening shows is by booking only (not needed for the other ships). 

There are three quick and easy ways to book: connect to the free onboard wi-fi network with your smartphone or tablet, use the touch screens on different decks of the ship, or ask at the Reception.

In addition, guests on MSC Meraviglia have the unique opportunity to see the original shows by Cirque du Soleil.
