MSC Cruises 'go green'

Date Posted: 05 Aug 2008

MSC Cruises has announced that its Fantasia and Splendida ships will be fitted with equipment aimed at conserving energy and protecting the environment.

The vessels - which are being constructed in St Nazaire - are reportedly among the largest ships ever commissioned by a European cruise company and weigh in excess of 133,000 tonnes.

Having been awarded Comfort Class certificates - which reflect "comfort and environmental protection - the vessels boast advanced water treatment systems, climate control cabin monitoring units and energy saving light fittings.

According to MSC Cruises, the hull of both vessels will be painted in Intersleek 900 - a revolutionary substance which enables ships to glide more easily though water and help to reduce fuel consumption.

The cruise line has already received recognition for its environmental efforts and has been presented with numerous awards and certificates, including the Green Planet Award, which is handed to hotels that boast eco-friendly facilities.

As well as the MSC Fantasia and the MSC Splendida, the cruise line's fleet also includes the MSC Opera and MSC Rhapsody.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
