As Qatar gears up to the welcome football fans for FIFA World Cup 2022, traditional ground accommodation will be complimented with high-end MSC Cruises sea-based cabins. MSC Opera will become a cruise ship hotel in Doha working in cooperation with Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy. From November 19 to December 19, MSC Opera along with MSC World Europa and MSC Poesia will be docked at Doha Port, providing the perfect starting point to easily reach Qatar stadiums. The elegant cruise liner offers 1,075 passenger cabins, from traditional and ocean-view cabins to balcony cabins and luxurious suites. When not attending a football game, guests can enjoy a variety of lounges and entertainment venues, including the ultra-glamorous La Cabala Piano Lounge, the magnificent Teatro dell’Opera theatre for Broadway-style shows, a range of restaurants, a spa, gym, swimming pools and whirlpools located throughout the ship’s nine decks. This new accommodation opportunity for visitors to Doha can be booked for a minimum of two nights through MSC Cruises or through a preferred travel agent.
