Default New Ship Details-Musica

MSC Cruises announced that its new Musica, debuting as the line's newest flagship in spring 2006, will feature Art Nouveau, Art Deco and 1930s architecture, as well as the Italian design familiar to MSC's other ships. Currently under construction at Chantiers de L'Atlantique in France, the vessel will be the largest of MSC's fleet. It will feature 1,300 passenger cabins, serving 2,550 passengers and offer more than 242,000 square feet of public area. Eighty-five percent of the staterooms will be outside accommodations and 65 percent of staterooms will have balconies. One highlight of the ships will be a three-deck waterfall in the central foyer, where guests can be entertained by a piano suspended, by means of a transparent crystal floor, above a pool of luminous water.

MSC Cruises to debut the sound of Musica in '06

FORT LAUDERDALE -- The Musica, which will be MSC Cruises’ largest ship when it debuts next spring, will sail from Port Everglades during the fall and winter 2006-2007 season, the line said.

The 89,000-ton Musica will carry 2,550 passengers, nearly a thousand passengers more than the line’s current North American-based products, the Lirica and the Opera.

The Musica is currently under construction at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in France and will be delivered in spring 2006.

It will sail in the Mediterranean before crossing to Fort Lauderdale in fall 2006.

The idea of Art Nouveau is appealing especially if they can capture the beauty of the original as seen in many of the buildings of Paris, Prague and Budapest.
The Art Deco xould be wonderful especially if as in the wonderous Empire State Building iin New York.
Although it seems odd to mix to sucj stronf design influences in one cruiseliner.
However the idea of three storey waterfalls, luminous pools and transparent crystal floors is really tacky. With a capital "T"!
MSC is a class act they do not need cheap (that cost a fortune) gimmicks.
