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.

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! "
