MSC- The details on its new “Inclusive Experiences” structure

MSC OperaMSC Cruises has launched its “Inclusive Experiences”, a new pricing structure that lets guests choose more of what they want included in their cruising experience.

There are four category choices: Bella, Fantastica, Aurea, and MSC Yacht Club.  (Pricing within these categories ranges from la carte to all-inclusive, depending on the vacationers choice.)

The line invites it’s passengers to consider what they want most from their cruise, then make their category choice based on these questions:

  • Do you want to keep things simple?
  • Are comfort and flexibility your main goals?
  • Is your dream cruise all about relaxation and pampering?
  • Or privacy and exclusivity?

North American passengers (these options have already been rolled out in Europe) can begin booking with these thoughts in mind almost immediately… reservations starting Sept. 23, 2014, and sailing as soon Oct. 18, 2014 will have the “Inclusive Experiences” option.

Here is how the line itself describes each category (contact your agent for specific pricing):
