When MSC officials were at the STX France yard in Saint-Nazaire on Wednesday, they didn't just pick up their new ship. They ordered two more with options for two additional ones. These won't be Meraviglia clones; they will be the latest in cruise ships: the 2022 World-class model - with the high-tech engine - and whitewalls.
As you may have noted by the model year, MSC (and passengers) will be waiting awhile to ride these beauties. The two under firm order will be delivered in 2022 and 2024, with the options being for 2025 and 2026.
The complete story appeared in the June 1 edition of Cruise News Daily.
