FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (May 7, 2007) ? If taste is one of life?s not-to-be-ignored components, then a cruise onboard MSC Orchestra is just the holiday for you: a triumph of tastes as only MSC Cruises knows how to prepare!

MSC Orchestra, which debuts May 14, offers the best gastronomic experiences to its guests with its many dishes and quality of the onboard food. From meat that comes from Italian farms to the fresh fruit, all our suppliers are carefully chosen. The bread is baked daily with the expertise and passion of a boulangerie. From the pizza and Focaccia di Recco, to dim sum and the Chocolate Supreme from the onboard Chocolate Bar, the onboard offerings span from Mediterranean dishes to those of the Orient. Wrap yourself in the rich and appetizing ambiance: 187 daily dish choices from breakfast to lunch, from tea time to dinner... the evenings continue with a stream of aromas, colors and tastes!

A thousand and one recipes result in an infinite variety of tastes to entice all the senses. Regional recipes, ethnic dishes and daily specials make up 14 weekly menus and 280 diverse dishes in the main restaurants, Villa Borghese and l?Ibiscus. If you yearn for a ?light? choice there are calorie-controlled options on the menus. Additionally, there is an ?always available?? selection to satisfy everyone. For those with dietary requirements, alert the staff when you book so they can cater to your needs.

? LA CARTE AND BUFFET RESTAURANT - The new flagship MSC Orchestra, just like sister ship MSC Musica, has an exclusive ? la carte restaurant. Onboard MSC Orchestra, it is the Four Seasons Restaurant, decorated with elegant marble rounded off with refined porcelain, crystal glasses and silver tableware.

The midnight feasts will tempt you in every corner of the ship: the guest star on board the cruise is the ?Buffet Magnifico? that takes place on the last night of the cruise and offers a hundred dishes, including crudit?s, nibbles and desserts -  all sculptured and decorated.

SHANGHAI CHINESE RESTAURANT ? If you love Oriental food, the Shanghai Chinese Restaurant is the ideal place. Typical Chinese cuisine can be enjoyed with a 360? panoramic view. Starting with dim sum (a carousel of Oriental starters from various regions in China) to the soups and a choice of four diverse menus:  from Beijing in the north, to the sweeter Cantonese dishes, to the typical Shanghai and the spicy Szechuan. Four types of rice will be offered plus a vegetarian menu and dessert selection, from fried ice cream to rice pudding or a banana spring roll. Wash it down with a cool Tsingtao, the beer with ??almond eyes,? or an aromatic tea, followed by a liqueur.

FEEL GOOD?ENJOY EATING! -  There is no better way to really relax than to indulge in a Balinese body massage, followed by a Pilates class, rounded off with a detox and refreshing tisane or a natural fruit smoothie. Thanks to the Spa Bar, located inside the Body & Mind Spa, nothing is simpler! If you prefer a freshly squeezed vegetable juice as you tan yourself by the pool enjoying the salsa and merengue rhythms, the Vitamin Bar is located by the pool so you don?t lose a single ray of sunshine!

IT?S IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST a world of chocolate! At the Chocolate Bar there is a chocolate fountain, where the chocolate is on ?tap.? This is just the beginning. Bars of chocolate, biscuits and cookies, speared fruit to dip in chocolate or wafers with ice cream and pears covered in warm chocolate? And then the small glasses of ?liquid? chocolate, milk or white chocolate, for an ad hoc elixir. Once you taste the chocolate liqueur, heavenly delight awaits!
