MSC Cruises to partner with Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

The collaboration will give cruise passengers a fully integrated F1 experience

As part of MSC Cruises global partnership with Formula 1, the line has unveiled its hospitality offering for the race weekend experience at this year’s Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, taking place from 24 to 26 November 2023.

The new collaboration will provide a fully integrated Grand Prix experience that will bring the trackside thrills of the final race of the season on board MSC Virtuosa, one of the line’s most modern cruise ships.

A range of different packages are available, starting with a cabin-only option for those who already have race tickets, or a cabin and Grandstand ticket option, combining accommodation, race tickets and exclusive insider access with F1 experiences. 


All packages are on a half board basis (including breakfast and evening meal) and include complimentary Wi-Fi and transfers to and from the track.

MSC Cruises CEO Gianni Onorato said: “Through this exclusive hospitality offering we are bringing together the very best of two worlds: Formula 1 and MSC Cruises. 

"By collaborating, we are integrating the incredible atmosphere at the track with the incredible experience on board our ships to create an unrivalled and truly memorable race experience for fans of all ages.”
