Four megaships ordered for MSC

Date Posted: 06 Apr 2016
Category:
MSC Cruises have released details of a signed letter of intent with STX Shipyard in France for not one, not two but four new LNG powered megaships.

The new ships will represent a new “World Class” generation of cruise ships for MSC, the first of which is expected for delivery in 2022.

The new class of ships will be LNG-powered, utilising natural gases and minimising environmental impact. Weighing more than 200,000 tons and comfortably accommodating up to 5,400 passengers at double occupancy.

“The new MSC Cruises’ World Class prototype will feature – amongst other highly innovative elements – a record-breaking, futuristically-conceived design that will make the ship a truly unique place to be at sea, whilst maximizing the open air space available to guests.” - said MSC Cruises Executive Chairman Pierfrancesco Vago of the new ships.

Dates of arrival span 2022-2026 with more details to come.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
