Michael Springer, CEO MS6
80 Artists on a week long cruise, accompanied by a distinguished audience from all five continents.
Our tailor-made trips with world-famous artists and orchestras draw an international audience to Europe. Every two years. Sea & Music with the Vienna Philharmonic, taking place every two years, is our absolute highlight.
Owner and CEO MS6
High points of our trips are the great concerts on land, for example in the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, the Elbphilharmonie of Hamburg, the opera house of Glyndebourne in England, the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg or the Palau de la Musica in Barcelona to name but a view of our concert locations.
„We know that there is a huge connection between the listeners and the Viennna Philharmonic Orchestra, on board this is extremely validated.“
„Trips like these are about overcoming the invisible wall between the podium and the audience.“
„If I knew that the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra was rehearsing in Vienna and I could come and watch, I would ride my bike all the way from Berlin to Vienna. Here on the ship I can do that right after breakfast.“
„I think it is beautiful to travel this way and experience a pleasant surprise every day.“
„One sees the members of the Orchestra from a very private point of view and has the opportunity to chat about music. This exchange creates the great excitement of these trips.“
Also for the artists, our concert journeys are a very unique experience.

The meet and Greet with the artists and stars is a highlight on the Sea & Music Cruise..
Exclusively for the guests of the Sea & Music Cruise, Zubin Mehta conducts the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in the outstanding Teatro Goldoni.
Ramon Vargas recounts how he experienced the cruise and the contact with the guests during Sea & Music 2016.
„We never miss any of the rehearsals or chamber music concerts on board! Recognizing the famous faces from the brochure, it brings us very close to the musicians.“
„For me it is a very special experience to be so close to an orchestra like the Vienna Philharmonic. There's no need to talk about their quality - bit it is extremely rare and even more special to be able to listen in on their rehearsals.“
„But we also see how music is made, how it comes into existence, from the very best musician here, who also has to rehearse.“
„I experience this cruise, with tis musical programme, as something very special. To deliver a journey like this with such an enormous level of quality is absolutely fantastic.“

MS6 Partner, Mexico
Experience unique European cities up close. The land excursions are an integral part of our Sea&Music cruises. They allow our guests to enter new countries and cultures, and see them from a personal perspective.
„This is our first cruise and it is wonderful! The combinations of a fantastic ship, concerts, music and everything! Even the weather is great. We throughly enjoyed it!"
„When we saw the brochure, we said: Let's go on this cruise! Otherwise we will never come to the Vienna Philharmonic. We will never get tickets for the new year's concert, but we watch it every year."
„It is a true joy to visit all those places accompanied by an orchestra with such an important history. Wonderful things are thus connected, which normally you cannot experience. “
"We are used to travel from city to city, normally at high speeds. Here we take in more impressions, watching the landscape pass by.“
