MSC Cruises signs letter of intent for new Favolosa ship

Date Posted: 08 Mar 2010
Category:
MSC Cruises is to add a 12th vessel to its fleet following the news that a new Fantasia-class ship will enter service in 2012.

Despite only recently showcasing the MSC Magnifica in Southampton, the liner has signed a letter of intent to introduce the MSC Favolosa, which will feature 1,751 cabins for those looking for a cruise holiday.

Meanwhile, the vessel will measure 333.3 metres in length and be large enough to hold 3,274 passengers.

Furthermore, the Favolosa will adhere to the MSC Yacht Club 'ship within a ship' concept, alongside a total deck redesign, lifts to improve passenger flow, a casino and disco.

MSC Cruises chief executive Pierfrancesco Vago said: "We are immensely proud to announce the signature of a letter of intent for the building of a new ship, MSC Favolosa.

"At a time when many companies are cautious about investing, with this announcement MSC Cruises once again signals the record-breaking extent of its ambition."

Among the destinations that cruise fans can head to on board ships from MSC Cruises are the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.

"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...”
