If you like bling, then this is the cabin for you!
Since 2008, the Swarovski staircases have been an iconic feature of the MSC fleet. The world’s largest privately-owned cruise line is taking things one step further announcing that their newest flagship, MSC Bellissima, would now feature the world’s first crystal cabin.
The cabin will be adorned in 700,000 dazzling Swarovski crystals including crystallized furniture, such as the bedside tables, sideboard and coffee table. The wall sconces have been specially designed, offering stunning lighting throughout the cabin. Even the walls have a touch of glamour, with beautiful coral artwork sparkling with crystals.
The new crystal cabin will be situated in the exclusive MSC Yacht Club, the premium “ship-within-a-ship” concept and will be recognizable thanks to a crystallized number on the outside of the stateroom door to set it apart from the other cabins. The cabin in question 16018 won’t be ready until mid-November.
MSC Cruises’ modern and innovative ships are distinguished by the brand’s signature European-style demonstrating a skillful use of marble, crystal and glass to create iconic design features.
The collaboration between MSC and Swarovski spans more than a decade, when the first iconic Swarovski staircases were unveiled on the MSC Fantasia. Since then, the staircases have become a stand-out design featured on a number of MSC ships and are the most photographed spot on the ship.
Swarovski, like MSC Cruises, is a family company with a history of more than 120 years and is renowned for designing, manufacturing and selling the world`s highest quality crystals. Both companies share a passion for elegance, craftsmanship, innovation and the close-knit spirit that only family companies can foster.
MSC Cruises’ Executive Chairman, Pierfrancesco Vago described the collaboration as a “symbol of sophistication on board MSC Cruises ships.”
The new crystal cabin developed in collaboration with Swarovski and De Jorio Design is sure to become a coveted addition to the all-inclusive MSC Yacht Club and will bring a touch of extra sparkle and glamour to the seas.
Get ready to be bedazzled!
