Every evening, Red Velvet offers a different menu to celebrate an Italian region with its typical cuisine and most renowned wines.

Il Cerchio d'Oro Restaurant


Il Cerchio d'Oro restaurant, on the ship's stern, features a breathtaking panorama which inspired the theme of transparency and light used in the restaurant design. This restaurant offers an assorted Mediterranean menu, including light choices and options that are always available, to satisfy those who know what they want each day.

L'Etoile Restaurant


L'Etoile, the private restaurant at the exclusive service of MSC Yacht Club members, provides guests with a gourmet dining experience principally inspired by the Italian and French culinary traditions. Refined ingredients such as foie gras, truffles and scallops combine with delicacies such as quail eggs, guinea fowl and pigeon breast to create dishes that are both sophisticated and minimalistic. The sparing use of decoration serves as foil to highlight the scrupulously selected raw ingredients.
The restaurant offers a connoisseur wine list of some fifty superb Italian, French and Spanish wines, including Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Millesime, Soldera Case Basse Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG and Chateau Figeac Saint Emilion Premier Grand Cru. Ably assisted by the expert Head Wine Waiter who is always in attendance, MSC Yacht Club guests can choose the perfect accompaniment to the chef's creations, exploring some of the finest wines in the world.

The full-view kitchen completes the traditional atmosphere of this restaurant.

Fun

The fun is never-ending by day or night.

Italians are known for l'arte di vivere - the art of living and enjoying life. And so you will discover an endless array of pleasures and fun activities onboard.

Perhaps you'll begin with an invigorating yoga class, volleyball game, tennis or miniature golf. Stop by the Internet Cafe or international library while the kids enjoy the fun of our complimentary youth program that includes art, dancing and games for kids of all ages. Enjoy shopping in our onboard boutiques, or enrich your mind with an Italian lesson.

When evening arrives, la notte magica - the night is magical. Inspired entertainment brings standing ovations for our unique brand of exotic theatricality. We offer different shows in our theater each night, such as passionate flamenco dancers from Spain for a touch of the Mediterranean.

Your enchanted evening continues with dancing in our disco and live performances throughout the ship, from a classical string quartet to jazz and piano. Or have fun singing along to your favorite Italian songs. And in the European gaming tradition, we invite you to try your luck in our casino. Then end your evening with a romantic stroll on the pool deck where le stelle brilliano luminose - the stars shine bright.
