MSC Bellissima is the largest ever ship to be christened in Southampton. The ship has more than 10 dining venues, a whole host of incredible facilities (from F1 simulators to virtual reality mazes) and lots of different types of accommodation. Bellissima is capable of holding 5,686 guests – when absolutely full – across 2,217 cabins. Of those, an impressive 1,418 cabins have balconies. There are also 175 cabins made specifically for families, which can accommodate up to 10 people, and interior studios – made for those travelling alone. All cabins also come with Zoe, MSC’s personal digital assistant. Read our guide to some of the different types of accommodation below.
Located in MSC Bellissima’s luxury Yacht Club, where well-heeled guests are looked after by 24-hour butler service. The ship within a ship, which can only be accessed by those staying in the Yacht Club, has 95 suites that offer memory foam mattresses, and a complimentary mini-bar. Yacht Club guests also have access to the Top Sail lounge, for drinks and finger food; the Top Sail restaurant, for gourmet cuisine; and a glorious outside area with cabanas, whirlpools and a buffet.
Spanning two floors, MSC Bellissima’s Duplex suites have a living area downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. The balcony also comes with its own whirlpool – the perfect place to wind down after a day on shore.
Ranging in size from 12 to 22 square metres, the balcony cabins are the most common type of cabin on board – with 1,250 balcony cabins on Bellissima.
Balcony for guests with disabilities or reduced mobility
There are 32 balcony cabins for those with disabilities or reduced mobility and 22 interior cabins. The balconies range in size from 21 to 47 square metres while the interior cabins are 24 square metres. All showers have fold-down seats and WCs have grab rails. The cabin door width is 85.5cm.
There are 628 interior cabins on Bellissima, ranging in size from 12 to 22 square metres.
The cosy Interior studios are built for solo passengers – with only 12 on board. They are all 12 square metres.
Cabin for families
The family cabins offer clever solutions for larger groups. With a double bed, plus a curtained off bunk bed. They are also capable of being connected to another cabin.
There are just 136 Oceanview cabins on board Bellissima. Covering the same amount of space as balcony cabins, they are a great alternative to anyone sailing on a smaller budget.
