MSC Monterey - Old
Stylish sophistication sets the tone on this intimate and friendly liner as she pampers her guests with deep pile carpets, gleaming brass rails, polished mirrors and tropical greenery. From the casual elegance of the Cafe de Paris to the Galleried Art Deco Show Lounge to the superb Split-level Restaurant, the emphasis is on gracious living.

Cabin decor is light and airy with soft carpets, quilted coverlets and ample wardrobe and drawer space. Small in size but big in amenities, there is lots to do on deck. As night falls the MSC Monterey assumes an air of quiet refinement with live music in the Palm Court Lounge and glittering nightlife all around.


As night falls the Monterey assumes an air of quiet refinement. Sip a pre-dinner cocktail in the elegant Palm Court Lounge with live piano music in the background.

Experience flavors and aromas from an authentic Mediterranean cucina. The dominant feature in Itallian cuisine is home cooking - from amare, cooking with love. Like our warm service, the spirit of our cuisine is always hospitable.

Experience the zest of flavors and gainety of colors of the Mediterranean - garlic, olives, basil, red pepper and tomatoes--in traditional family recipes. Taste signature pasta dishes - Dumplings Sorrento and Fettuccine Alfredo to Linguini with Clams or Pesto. Don't overlook the seafaring favorites - appetizers of shrimp cocktail and smoked salmon, entrees of lobster and fresh fish - or the filet mignon and prime rib, grilled to perfection.

Wine connoisseurs will savor the selections or cap dinner off with a cappuccino or espresso. Afterwards, dessert! From Italian treats of tiramisu and cannolis to your favorite cakes, pastries and tarts della mama!
