MSC Cruises triumphs with four reader’s choice Awards from porthole cruise and travel 2023

Friday, November 17, 2023


MSC Cruises has secured four industry accolades from Porthole Cruise and Travel, a prominent international magazine focusing on cruising, destinations, and onboard experiences. The magazine recognized MSC Cruises in the 2023 Reader’s Choice Awards for the cruise line’s steadfast dedication to environmental stewardship, exceptional on-board entertainment, and outstanding shore excursions.

MSC Cruises earned the title of “Best Eco-Friendly Cruise Line” in the Eco-Friendly Cruise Line category, showcasing the company’s ongoing dedication to sustainability. The recognition is reinforced by MSC Cruises’ achievement of operating the industry’s first net-zero greenhouse gas emissions voyage during the summer, utilizing its latest LNG-powered vessel, MSC Euribia. This acknowledgment reflects the brand’s overarching objective to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

MSC Cruises received the accolade of “Best Cruise Ship Entertainment” for its remarkable on-board productions and spaces. The fleet of 23 ships offers an array of world-class Broadway-style entertainment, family-friendly waterparks, ziplines, swimming pools, and age-specific Kids Clubs catering to babies, toddlers, children, and teenagers. The cruise experience includes unique attractions such as a Formula Racer simulator on board MSC Meraviglia and a ride on ROBOTRON, a robotic arm swinging high above the ocean on MSC Seascape.

Readers chose MSC Cruises’ Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve as the “Best Cruise Line Private Island” in the Private Island category. Situated within a 64-square-mile expanse of protected waters, Ocean Cay is a breathtaking island paradise in The Bahamas that was founded with a strong dedication to the preservation of marine life. The MSC Foundation’s substantial efforts to restore Ocean Cay and lessen the effects of climate change on the nearby ecosystem have resulted in the destination being named a Mission Blue “Hope Spot” in recent times.

MSC Cruises clinched the title of “Best Shore Excursions” in recognition of the brand’s extensive array of adventures available for guests to book. MSC Cruises offers a diverse range of unique experiences, from shipwreck snorkelling getaways to culinary tours and environmentally conscious excursions known as Protectours. Readers have acknowledged MSC Cruises as a premier cruise line for off-ship entertainment. The complete list of this year’s winners is featured in Porthole Cruise and Travel’s November/December 2023 issue.
