Press release -


Named after the ships’ state-of-the-art Aurea Spa and located on the prestigious upper decks, the Aurea Suites comprise 28 luxuriously appointed cabins, each formerly part of the deluxe MSC Yacht Club offering.


Guests who book an Aurea Suite will receive a superb wellness and spa package which includes a welcome cocktail at the spa bar, unlimited access to the Thermal Suite (Turkish bath, spa bath, sauna and relaxation room), a personal appointment with an Aurea Spa doctor, a 30 minute relaxing facial treatment and last but not least, a solarium session.


A stay in an MSC Cruises’ Aurea Suite will be a one-of-a-kind experience. Passengers can relax their mind and revitalise their body whilst discovering some of the jewels the Mediterranean has to offer.


MSC Cruises’ groundbreaking spa and fitness facilities have already made the company a market leader, so much so that at the recent Cruise International Awards, MSC Splendida’s Aurea Spa beat off stiff competition to win Best for Well-Being. Now the company raises the bar still further with the launch of this initiative.


Aurea Suite prices start from £1779 per person on MSC Fantasia for an 11-night cruise including flights and from £1229 per person on MSC Splendida for an 11-night cruise including flights.
