MSC Cruises Confirms Option for Two More Cruise Ships

Geneva-based cruise giant MSC Cruises has confirmed orders for two more cruise vessels to be built by STX France’s shipyard in Saint Nazaire, according to the cruise company.

The announcement was made during the coin ceremony for the MSC Meraviglia, held at the shipyard on Monday

The deal for the two Meraviglia Plus class vessels is worth a total of EUR 1.6 billion (USD 1.74 billion). The new vessels join the company’s existing order for two Vista class cruise ships, previously signed with STX France in April 2015.

The two Meraviglia Plus class ships are expected to join the company’s fleet in October 2019 and September 2020.

Featuring a length of 331 meters, the new vessels will be able to carry almost 6,300 passengers.
