Swiss-based cruise line MSC Cruises has an international presence with passengers from all over the world embarking on its ships each year. MSC Cruises has 19 ships in its fleet, with the 6,297-passenger ship MSC Virtuosa having launched this year, following on from the Meraviglia-class ships Bellissima and Grandiosa, which were welcomed in 2019. The cruise line has ambitious plans for expansion, having announced that it will be entering into the ultra-luxury market with four new vessels, each catering for 1,000 guests. The first of the new generation of MSC ships will come into service in the spring of 2023 and the venture will have its own brand name, yet to be unveiled. MSC Cruises will also be launching the first of four LNG-powered World-class ships in 2022.
MSC Virtuosa, ship details
MSC Virtuosa’s namesake comes from the word virtuoso, meaning someone highly skilled in any field of activity, and so MSC Virtuosa was named to pay homage to the skill and expertise of the MSC Cruises architects and shipyard partners at Les Chantiers de l’Atlantique who designed and built this innovative class of ships. This new cruise ship is one of the two largest in MSC Cruises’ fleet, along with her sister ship MSC Grandiosa, boasting an impressive array of guest features all coming together in perfect harmony to deliver the ultimate cruise holiday experience.Full ship details
