This is the Only Place You Can See Cirque du Soleil at Sea

Cirque du Soleil has been charting new entertainment territory since it began and it's changed what we think of as 'circus' shows.

You may have been lucky enough to go to a Cirque du Soleil shows on land.

But there's only one place you can see the innovative, extraordinarily talented Cirque performances at sea.

European-based cruise line MSC has exclusively partnered with the French-Canadian Cirque to provide cruise guests with one-of-a-kind, internationally-renowned entertainment on board.

Cirque du Soleil is creating shows you'll only be able to see on MSC Cruises. A total of 8 original shows are in the works for MSC's four Meraviglia-class ships launching through 2020. You'll want to sail on all four ships as the shows will show the full range of Cirque's imagination with a different concept, ambiance and storyline, original soundtrack, staging and costumes.

The first 2 shows have already launched on the MSC Meraviglia: Sonor and Viaggio. 

Sonor is an auditory adventure, whose unique rhythms, sounds and sensations, bold music and immersive projections sweep dancers, acrobats and characters along to the beat. 

Viaggio is a poetic exploration of color, following the story of an eccentric painter into his imagination.  As he works his art, compelling motifs, textures, and majestic acts bring his canvas to life for a riveted audience. These creative and expressive Cirque du Soleil performances had to be designed specifically to work in the unique, ship-board environment that challenged the creators and performers. They are held on MSC in a venue just as unique as the shows themselves.
