MSC Cruises’ recently launched flagship MSC Bellissima will introduce a new Crystal Cabin, featuring multiple design elements adorned with Swarovski crystals.
The MSC Cruises brand signature is European style, using a combination of marble, crystal and glass in design features. The company’s Swarovski staircases, first introduced on the MSC Fantasia in 2008, have become an iconic feature of MSC Cruises’ ships. The company says these are some of the most photographed spots on its eight ships. The new Crystal Cabin concept on the Bellissima extends the design and branding collaboration between the two companies.
MSC Cruises’ executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago described the collaboration as a “symbol of sophistication on board MSC Cruises ships”.
MSC says that 700,000 crystals were used to embellish the Crystal Cabin space, including in crystallised furniture, such as the bedside tables, sideboard and coffee table.
Crystal-embellished wall sconces have been specially designed for this cabin, and coral artwork sparkling with crystals is mounted on the walls.
The 96 crystal steps on the MSC Bellissima feature more than 61,000 Swarovski crystals. Other sparkly details include crystal-detailed wallpaper in the MSC Yacht Club and a crystallised Active Panel illuminated by custom LEDs with 500,000 crystals per square metre built into the design of the Champagne Bar on deck 7.
The new Crystal Cabin was developed in collaboration with Swarovski and De Jorio Design.
The new MSC Bellissima Swarovski Crystal Cabin – number 16018 – will be available for booking from mid-November 2019 and is located in The MSC Yacht Club, a premium section located in the foredecks of the ship where guests can eat, drink, swim and sunbathe in a private club atmosphere. It includes 95 suites and comes with 24-hour butler and concierge service.
