Stateroom 16018 will be located in the exclusive MSC Yacht Club and according to Cruise Arabia & Africa will be worth more than AED1-million.


The introduction of the Swarovski Crystal Stateroom builds on the long-time partnership between MSC and Swarovski. The Swarovski Crystal staircases in the atrium’s of MSC’s ships have become one of the line’s most defining features.

MSC Cruises’ Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago described the collaboration as a “symbol of sophistication on board MSC Cruises ships”.

“Every element has been carefully chosen to add elegant touches and complement the design with 700,000 crystals used to embellish the space,” he said.

This includes crystallized furniture, such as the bedside tables, sideboard and coffee table.


The new stateroom will be installed aboard MSC Bellissima in mid-November, just before she repositions to Dubai for the winter cruise season.

MSC Bellissima will cruise roundtrip from Dubai on 7-night itineraries in the Arabian Gulf from November until March, 2020, when she will reposition to China. The ship is the largest cruise vessel ever to homeport in the city.
