It’s been an exciting week for MSC Cruises. Not only has the Mediterranean cruise line just received delivery of its brand new flagship, MSC Meraviglia; but has also just confirmed an order for up to four new World Class cruise ships.
MSC Meraviglia was received this week at Saint Nazaire’s STX shipyard in a ceremony with special guests including the French President Emanuel Macron. Celebrations will continue this week as Meraviglia is christened on June 3rd in La Havre. Italian superstar Sophia Loren continues to bless each MSC Cruises ship and will be godmother to Meraviglia.
Hailed as the eighth wonder of the world, Meraviglia is the largest ship in Europe and features many new and exciting cruise innovations. MSC for Me technology enhances guest experiences with NFC, whilst an exclusive partnership with Cirque Du Soleil* provides avant-garde entertainment onboard.
