Have you ever been on a cruise? MSC Cruises is giving residents and visitors in Qatar a chance to visit any of their two cruise ships currently docked at Doha Port

Embark on the MSC World Europa or the MSC Poesia with exclusive day pass access! The day pass will allow you to board the ship for the day and enjoy all the facilities and attractions offered onboard.

MSC World Europa

From her sleek interior design and 13 dining venues – to her thrilling entertainment offerings, the onboard experience on the MSC World Europa is like no other cruise ship.

Relax in the scenic Panorama Lounge, experience the excitement of the futuristic Luna Park Arena or lose yourself in the iconic Kinetic Dome. Experience a world of cuisines with brand new concepts that include the Chef’s Garden Kitchen – the first hydroponic garden at sea; the Mediterranean fish restaurant La Pescaderia; a new onboard microbrewery; and a Gin bar where you can learn mixology.

The ship also features some of their signature favourites, like the American-style steakhouse and the Latin American street food-inspired Hola! Tacos & Cantina, the Kaito Teppanyaki & Sushi bar, and the ship’s renowned buffets.

There’s something for everyone on board, from waterpark to bumper cars and street performances. And with seven swimming pools spread across the ship, including one with a sliding roof, there’s always space to relax by the water and pool deck.

For families with children, the award-winning MSC Kids Club features state-of-the-art facilities inside a dedicated area of the ship, with a range of kids’ clubs and tailor-made programmes for every age group.

MSC Poesia

The MSC Poesia is an innovative cruise ship. Step aboard and you’ll enter a refined world of comfort, from the spectacular foyer waterfall to the Zen Garden, authentic Japanese Sushi bar and opulent MSC Aurea Spa wellness centre with steam room, sauna and divine massages to pamper body and mind – the perfect place to unwind.

The ship offers all the resort amenities you could wish for, including three swimming pools, four whirlpools and a giant poolside cinema screen. Kids and teens are equally well-served with their own clubs and parties, a dedicated Stone Age and Dinosaur Play area, stunning video games and even a DJ disco!

The gourmet cuisine onboard brings you specialities from around the world but retains its Mediterranean heart, rooted in the values of the Italian slow food movement. With MSC, every succulent dish is freshly prepared with care by skilled chefs and prime ingredients.

The varied lounge bars also offer refreshing drinks – original and authentic – from the Grappolo d’Oro wine-tasting bar to the Mojito cocktail bar and the ‘sumptuous’ cigar room.

Day Pass

The Day Pass for any of the two cruise ships is only QAR182 and includes access to MSC World Europa or MSC Poesia, and all their public facilities and attractions onboard, plus a variety of dining options. Food and drinks are payable on board.
