As reported by the Qatar News Agency (QNA), the MSC Opera, the third cruise ship to serve as a "floating hotel" during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, has arrived at Doha Port.
At 275m in length and 32m in width, the 13-deck MSC Opera can accommodate nearly 2,679 people with 1,075 rooms. 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%.
MSC Opera will join MSC World Europa and MSC Poesia which arrived at Doha Port earlier, to offer a luxurious hospitality experience to fans of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
MSC Opera is a modern 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.
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.
The cooperation between Qatar and MSC Cruises dates back to 2016 when Doha welcomed the Group's first giant cruise ship, MSC Fantasia.
