MSC Cruises: Construction on new ships is "advanced"

Date Posted: 14 Feb 2008
Category:
MSC Cruises has provided an update on the progress of its four new ships which are currently being built in a shipyard in France.

According to MSC Cruises, construction on new vessels MSC Poesia and MSC Fantasia is at an "advanced" stage.

MSC Poesia is now almost ready for her christening, it is claimed, which is scheduled to take place on April 5th in Dover.

Meanwhile, MSC Fantasia is due to be christened later in the year in Naples in the month of December 2008.

"Now, with MSC Poesia, we are offering a unique five-star product, lavishing special attention on our guest," commented Pierfrancesco Vago, chief executive officer of MSC Cruises.

Once completed, the four new ships will boast between them 5,824 staterooms capable of accommodating 14,000 passengers.

The other two ships currently under construction are MSC Splendida, set to join the fleet in June 2009, and MSC Magnifica scheduled for completion in 2010.

What our customers say

"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...”
