MSC Cruises: the story

MSC Cruises was created in the 1970s. In the beginning, MSC excelled in the transport of goods and containers (the company is the world's second shipowner in this field). In 1987, MSC specializes in cruises and develops its catalog of destinations over the years. Today, the Italian company covers almost the entire globe and thinks big. MSC Cruises offers luxury services, yes, but affordable luxury, which is suitable for everyone, even large families and has plans to expand in the years to come! Along with the arrival of the MSC Meraviglia cruise ship in 2017, the cruise line officially announced the order of four new flagships. Thus, MSC will see its fleet expand by 11 new generation boats. A future full of good news that proves the confidence of the cruise company in the tourism industry, boosted by the good figures of recent years, with an increase in turnover of 10 points between 2014 and 2015.

The MSC fleet

The MSC Cruises fleet is made up of 12 ships, all of which reflect the love and know-how that the Aponte family has for the sea and maritime life. The MSC Armonia has been crisscrossing the waters of the globe since 2000. Its innovative equipment, its 330 m² space dedicated to music and dance, its many play areas for the youngest attract thousands of passengers every year. MSC Divina honors la dolce vita, glamor and cinema. This giant of the seas is 333 meters long and even has a ship inside the ship, the MSC Yacht Club. The MSC Fantasia pleasantly surprises with its relaxing and urban atmosphere at the same time. Espresso bar, restaurants, sports facilities, solarium, this small town 333 meters long accommodates up to 4,500 people (staff members included). MSC Lirica is an essential cruise ship with large and beautiful comfortable spaces. Smaller than the others, it is 274 meters long. The MSC Magnifica is a classic liner with great efficiency that emphasizes the pleasures of life: 5 gourmet restaurants and 12 themed bars are at your disposal. Leisure and well-being also have a prominent place with an impressive aquatic complex and an award-winning spa for the quality of its treatments and services. The MSC Meraviglia lives up to its name! From deck to deck, from fantastic activities to technological discoveries (you will love the virtual sky), cruise aboard a unique liner, which we are all looking forward to in 2017. MSC Musica is a ship of 293 meter long technological cruise that can accommodate around 2300 people. The MSC Opera is a medium-sized ship designed for your relaxation and entertainment: an incredible dance floor, a large shopping area, recently expanded facilities... The MSC Orchestra is a ship full of promise: from well-being to Spa Body and Mind, comfort and elegance in your cabins, an extraordinary gastronomic experience. The MSC Poesia is a creatively designed 294 meter long ship accommodates 2550 passengers and 1039 staff. The MSC Preziosa is a 333 meter long eco-ship that makes you live "Mediterranean style", in a luxurious atmosphere. The MSC Seaside and the MSC Seaview are real maritime feats, coming from a new generation of ships that will never cease to surprise you. Featuring the largest water park at sea (Aquapark), the MSC Seaside will dazzle you with all its cutting-edge technological innovations and its varied range of restaurants and shops. You'll love the 360° ride on MSC Seaview. The MSC Sinfonia is 275 meters long and accommodates 2,679 passengers looking for a unique cruise. MSC Splendida is a destination within a destination. A true small town, the 333 meter long ship will seduce you with the abundance of choices for dining, entertainment and sports.

In 2021, two new liners are inaugurated, namely the MSC Virtuosa and the MSC Seashore. In 2022, the MSC World Europa was launched, marking the inauguration of the new "World" class of ships.

The MSC Euribia, which should be launched in 2023, will be able to accommodate up to 6,700 passengers in its 2,400 different cabins and suites. Passengers will also be able to enjoy the MSC Aurea Spa wellness complex, an oasis of relaxation in the middle of their cruise.

The company has plans to launch other magnificent cruise ships in the near future: The MSC World America which will make its first maiden cruise on April 12, 2025 from Miami.
