The second floating hotel, MSC Poesia, docked in Doha Port on the morning of 14 November 2022 to join MSC World Europa, which arrived in Doha Thursday, 10 November 2022, to offer a luxurious hospitality experience to fans of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

The cruise ship MSC Poesia is a modern 4-star floating hotel that offers luxurious services to World Cup fans with a variety of room options ranging from traditional cabins overlooking the sea to rooms with balconies and luxury suites, in addition to multiple dining possibilities and programs and entertainment for all ages.

MSC Poesia houses 1,265 cabins, three swimming pools, a spa and wellness center, a cinema, poolside, tennis and basketball courts, in addition to four dining options, 15 coffee shops and event venues.

Floating hotels are one of several facilities provided by the State of Qatar for fans of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, offering multiple booking and accommodation options throughout the tournament, including apartments, villas, fan villages, and usual hotels.

H.E. Chairman of Qatar Tourism and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker affirmed in statements yesterday that offering accommodation and recreational services on board floating hotels reflects the strenuous efforts exerted to organize the best World Cup in history.

According to the estimates of the MSC Cruises Group, owner of the three floating hotels that will serve the tournament, the capacity of the three cruise ships reach 10,000 beds, and reservations for the first week of the World Cup have reached 100%.

The cooperation between Qatar and MSC Cruises dates back to 2016 when Doha welcomed the Group's first giant cruise ship, MSC Fantasia.
