MSC is Recruiting

MSC Cruises is part of the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the world’s second largest container company. The Aponte family has been involved in maritime transport since 1675, and by 1970 Gianluigi Aponte founded MSC in Brussels with the purchase of his first cargo ship called the Patricia. In 1978, Aponte moved the company to Geneva, Switzerland, where it is still headquartered today.

MSC Cruises have called the sea – home for over 300 years. It’s a place of wonder, discovery, and delight. But it’s also a place that needs protection. On an MSC Cruise, our guests don’t just create unforgettable memories, visit incredible destinations, and enjoy the finest hospitality – they also have a chance to make a difference. From our experienced crew members to our engineers, to our expert ship builders, we’re securing the sea’s tomorrow by taking positive steps today. 

MSC Cruises is the world’s third-largest cruise brand as well as the leader in Europe, South America, the Gulf region and Southern Africa, with more market share in addition to deployed capacity than any other player.

We are proud to support communities in need in Africa through a variety of social initiatives. We promote three important social projects in Africa, and we invite our guests to support them through a small donation added to their bill. With our guests’ help, we can make a difference!


Childhood mortality from malaria can be prevented, thanks to the Life-saving mosquito nets provided by UNICEF. Every minute, a child under the age of five dies of a mosquito bite. In Africa, malaria accounts for one in five childhood deaths. Yet it can be prevented.

Studies have shown that when children sleep under insecticide-treated mosquito nets, overall child mortality can be reduced by up to 20 %. It’s worth remembering that an insecticide-treated mosquito net costs less than $6. UNICEF is the world’s largest provider of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, and MSC Cruises is proud to support this program.
