Jacques Van Staden, Vice President of Food & Beverage, MSC Cruises, said: “We are always looking to anticipate the next big thing in food & beverage and with MSC Euribia, we wanted to offer venues that are unlike anything we have ever done before. The same culinary quality and exceptional service that define our offering will remain at the heart of the experience but will be brought to new heights. We want to offer our guests something to talk about, something to marvel at and something to remember, long after their cruise has ended. Whether this be through new recipes, venues or engaging storytelling, our food & beverage offering will set your taste buds alight.”
MSC Euribia will offer ten unique dining venues, including five speciality restaurants and five main dining spots, as well as 21 varied bars and lounges. Among these, new concepts to the fleet include:
NEW! DISCOVER THE WINEMAKER’S JOURNEY
The immersive and digital Helios Wine Bar invites the next generation of wine lovers to discover the story behind their favourite glass of wine. Seated at state-of-the-art multi-touch tables activated by digital coasters, guests will have the opportunity to dive into the history, grape varieties, wine-making regions and more, learning everything there is to know about the drink in their hand. Providing something for everyone, the venue will offer a variety of 96 featured wines that are sure to delight all guests.
For those feeling peckish, a selection of food pairings will be on offer, at a special display, including cheeses, cured meats, finger food and nuts to complement each glass.
Throughout the cruise, the location will also play host to Masterclasses for guests to expand their knowledge further and come back home with more than just souvenirs, they’ll have gained experience as wine connoisseurs.
NEW! FRENCH BISTRO MEETS STEAKHOUSE
Le Grill is an elegant new speciality restaurant that offers the quality, flavour and panache that French dining is known for. The new culinary destination is the quintessential French Brasserie centred around shared dishes, such as seafood platters, caviar and chargrilled aged and dry aged Black Angus beef from Meat by Linz. The elegant locale will propose traditional dishes such as Caesar salad, traditional onion soup, moules frites, blue lobster and fresh tagliatelle, roasted Rockefeller oysters, Dover sole Meunière and a selection of mouth-watering French desserts.
A new frontier of flavour to discover, amplified by the perfect pre-dinner bar right outside Le Grill, that gently flows between dessert, live music and fine art right next door, giving the feeling that guests have stepped onto the streets of Paris.
NEW! NEW FLAVOURS IN FAMILIAR LOCATIONS
Kaito Teppanyaki & Sushi Bar is a mainstay speciality restaurant on MSC Cruises’ ships, offering the flavours of the Far East and featuring two teppanyaki grills to delight and entertain.
