What is our preferred perks included in the Yacht Club?

Here is a snapshot of what we prefer about the Yacht club experience.

Priority Boarding

It is great not to have to wait in any queue when boarding or disembarking the ship. The priority embarkation, check-in and check-out make the experience seamless.

Privacy and fewer people

A lot of the comments we get is the resistance to cruise on big ships due to the crowd. Been part of the MSC Yacht Club Members take care of this.

The Yacht Club is a great way to combine the advantage of a large resort ship (entertainment & speciality restaurants) with the perks of privacy of a small luxury ship (like the one pool, private restaurant and dedicated butler service)
