Smart casual wear is required for the evenings, and men are usually asked to wear a jacket and tie.

The dress of the day, as decided by the Captain, is published in the Daily Program each day.

This sign of appreciation, valid on all ships in the MSC Cruises fleet is of course optional. Therefore, passengers may freely decide whether to increase or decrease it, communicating their decision to the Accounting Office before 22.00 of the last day. This Office is at your disposal for further information. For your convenience, should you give no indication to change the amount; the sum will automatically be debited to your final extras account.
