Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri delivered the largest cruise ship built in Italy, MSC Seaview, to MSC Cruises on June 4 in Monfalcone.
Featuring over 153,000 gross tons and a length of 323 meters, MSC Seaview is the largest and most technologically advanced ship ever to be designed and built in Italy, according to the shipbuilder.
With its sister ship MSC Seaside, delivered last November, this is the second ship to be built by Fincantieri for MSC Cruises in 6 months.
“The vessel will be one of the more innovative ships at sea, also when it comes to the environmental technology that it will feature,” Fincantieri said.
It will comply with the highest international standards but will also receive the “Green Star 3 Design” notation from the international classification society RINA, in addition to the main Class notations.
“We will remember MSC Seaview, without doubt, as an authentic undertaking. Just six months ago, in fact, we celebrated in this same yard the delivery of the largest ship ever built in Italy, MSC Seaside, a revolutionary prototype. Today we are repeating this success with its sister ship,” Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, said.
