The MSC Virtuosa and and F1 race car race toward Abu-Dhabi

MSC Cruises has partnered with Formula 1 to offer race fans a high-end Abu Dhabi Grand Prix hospitality package on board the MSC Virtuosa. Literally the best of both worlds, if you ask us.

The MSC F1 collaboration promises a unique race weekend with accommodation on one of the line’s most popular cruise ships. Covering the final race in the F1 2023 calendar (November 24-26), the ship will double as a hotel throughout the race weekend while docked in the Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal.

All of the MSC Virtuosa’s amenities will be race tuned, including its various restaurants and bars, two theatres, spa and gym, shopping mall and five swimming pools.

A range of different packages are available, combining accommodation, race tickets and exclusive insider access with mouth-watering F1 Experiences. There’s also a package for those who already have their race weekend tickets.

There’s the option of deluxe suites or cabins, all with half board, complimentary Wi-Fi and transfers to and from the track. The Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal is just a short drive from the circuit, which should make getting to and from the track a breeze. 

You can opt for the Grandstand ticket option, or a premium F1 experience, including all-inclusive hospitality, including access to the famed Paddock Club, a pit lane walk, guided track tour on a flatbed truck, and Formula 1 driver appearances.

If you want to extend your stay for sightseeing, you can, as the MSC Virtuosa will be in port November 23 to 27.   

The ship is also planning its own themed festive atmosphere for guests with various activities, parties and entertainment, as well as a dedicated kids’ programme.

In 2022, MSC Cruises signed a multi-year deal to become a Formula 1 Global Partner.   

Stefano Domenicali, President & CEO of Formula 1, said, “With luxurious accommodations, exclusive insider access, and the convenience of all-in-one race packages, we’re confident that this partnership will make the race weekend truly unforgettable.”
