Health and Safety Protocols
MSC has historically maintained high hygiene standards on all their ships, with rigorous cleaning and sanitisation prior, throughout and at the end of each cruise. We have further enhanced these procedures both with respect to public spaces as well as guest cabins and crew accommodations.
High traffic areas on ships are frequently sanitised with thorough cleansing and using a hospital-grade disinfectant. Key areas, which include public venues and toilets, are sanitised hourly and undergo a fogging process at night.
Guest cabins are cleaned twice a day. Once in the morning with thorough cleansing and wiping using a hospital-grade disinfectant and a further second cleaning for the most exposed surfaces, including telephones and remote controls, in the afternoon.
One of the best ways to stay healthy is to keep your hands clean. Handwashing stations and hand sanitisers are widely available around the ship. MSC has increased the availability of hand sanitiser stations and enforce hand cleansing at all onboard food and other venues.
All MSC Cruises’ ships are equipped with a well-resourced Medical Centre that is supervised by the ship’s doctor and other medical personnel and which provides a range of medical services for everyone on board.
MSC's medical staff are fully qualified and experienced medical professionals who all follow World Health Organization COVID-19 Recommendations for Healthcare Providers, as well as the recommendations of various health authorities.
Guests who suffer from flu-like symptoms are obliged to stay in their cabin and should contact the onboard Medical Centre as soon as possible. MSC's professional medical team will take care of them there and follow a clear protocol.
FOOD HYGIENE PRACTICES STANDARDS
Guests should wash their hands before entering any of the onboard food venues. There are handwashing stations and sanitiser at the entrance and exit points, with dedicated personnel to ensure that as guests utilize them.
ENTERTAINMENT RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
- There is frequent cleaning and disinfection of all recreational equipment, toys, games and Kids’ Club facilities (after every use), plus frequent open deck sanitisation of outdoor furniture, sports equipment, pool and aquaparks.
- Spa and gym facilities are sanitised after every use.
CREW MEMBERS PRACTICES STANDARDS
- MSC ensures that all crew members follow strict health and safety preventive measures.
- Crew members undergo a daily health check by the medical staff, and if any symptoms, they are not allowed to have any interactions with Guests.
- Crew members follow proper hand washing practices before, during, and after work duty, and wear protective garments, if required.

The MSC Virtuosa is very big with extra decks of rooms. The overall theme of music is evident in the artwork and various main dining room names. The major public event areas are similar to smaller ships with some extra venues such as a water par and large children's, teen areas.. The water park with its three slides is well designed and suitable for all ages There are two swimming pools and numerous hot tubs with water jets; outside and under a moveable roof. There is no adult only swimming area. The interior room was spacious and comfortable with room enough for dressing and sitting at the small desk. The bath was equally comfortable.Housekeeping was excellent. Dining was excellent in the main dining room or buffet. The menus always had plenty of options and focused on a variety of themes, cultures and tastes. Special requests were often made available if possible.There were several special evenings labeled optional Elegant or White night. The assigned early dining time worked well for attending later shows and events. But there were times we chose to eat in the MarketPlace Buffet later to accommodate special events such as the optional Carousel show. Entertainment in the theater was a variety of dance and song by the ship's cast and a few solo performances of comedians and singers. Each evenings show lasted about 35 minutes. Not all the bars and lounges had evening entertainment. Some were limited to specific hours. There was always some themed party from 10 PM on. During the day there were plenty of exercise events, a few trivia and an arts and crafts event along with retail shop events. Each port was fairly close to the city to walk to or a shuttle was provided.
