WORLD CLASS MSC takes delivery of Meraviglia

MSC Cruises took delivery of the latest next-generation cruise ship built by STX France, and the two companies signed a new memorandum of understanding firming up the order of four mega cruise ships which are to become MSC Cruises’ World Class.

The World Class ships will be equipped with a completely new generation of LNG-powered engines and a waste-water treatment system.

Each will feature 2,760 staterooms and a maximum occupancy of 6,850 guests, the highest passenger capacity in the global cruise fleet.

The vessels, which will be delivered in 2022, 2024, 2025 and 2026 will have a length of 1,083 ft. and 154 ft. of beam.

The World Class’ futuristic “Y” shape structure will enable panoramic sea views and increase the proportion of balcony cabins. The ships’ G bow (vertically positioned at a 90 degree angle) has been designed to improve stability, hydrodynamics as well as to enhance guest comfort.

Other guest-centric innovations include family-friendly villages, a panoramic aft, and a glass pool lounge.

The announcement of the World Class was made as MSC Cruises officially took delivery of MSC Meraviglia. During the ship’s flag ceremony, which pays tribute to centuries-old maritime tradition, the Company’s newest flagship received her official flag and blessings for good fortune.

MSC Meraviglia is due to set sail towards the Port of Le Havre for her christening ceremony on June 3.
