MSC Cruises introduces Eataly restaurants on its two newest ships

Eataly, the Turin-based food company with food and restaurants in the U.S., Italy, and Japan launched the first Eataly at sea on MSC Preziosa earlier this year and will debut on MSC Divina when she homeports in Miami this fall offering Caribbean itineraries.

Eataly has 16 locations around the world, including one in Manhattan and another opening this year in Chicago.

The two vessels are the newest additions to MSC’s Fantasia-class ships. The Eataly store in Manhattan has become a popular tourist spot with great restaurants and take-home Italian products.

Now the products go to sea.

Eataly offers around 80 seats in Manzo, the Eataly Restaurant on MSC Preziosa where guests can shop foodstuffs ranging from olive oil to dried pastas, artisanal sweets to wine without chemicals and more. Guests can also learn to prepare foods as well as dine. A smaller, exclusive ultra-high-quality Ristorante Italia features a table d’hote menu nightly with items specially conceived by Eataly chefs.

On MSC Divina, the restaurant will be called Eataly Steak House, the other will retain the Ristorante Italia name.

Rick Sasso, president and CEO of MSC Cruises USA, said “We look forward to delighting customers cruising on the soon-to-arrive MSC Divina with sensational Mediterranean dining and a variety of quality cuisine options.”

Ken Muskat, senior VP of sales & marketing, MSC Cruises USA, said, “We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with such a world-renowned eatery recognized for offering some of the best quality and authentic food experiences available.”
