MSC Cruises MSC Opera Ship Information

OCG Class
MSC Opera
Year Built2004
Year Last Refurbished2015
Capacity2,150 passengers


Designed as a nod to grand Italian hotels, the interior of the MSC Opera is more opulent than other MSC ships but not oppressively so. Built in 2004, the Opera is a great midsize alternative to today's overwhelming megaships. The Opera carries a mostly European mix of passengers on a variety of Mediterranean, Northern European and South American itineraries.
