MSC New Ship Order
MSC Cruises is in discussions with three different shipyards about possibly ordering two more new 1,600-cabin ships, each serving about 3,200 passengers. That potential order would be in addition to the planned delivery of the new Musica in 2006 and another new, yet unnamed ship in 2007. Separately, the line reported that MSC Lirica scored perfect 100 on its latest U.S. Public Health Vessel Sanitation Report.
Re: MSC New Ship Order
MSC negotiating to order two ships.
FORT LAUDERDALE -- MSC Cruises is in negotiations to order two cruise ships that would have about 1,600 cabins each, more than Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager-class vessels.
The line confirmed Monday it is in negotiations with three shipyards for the two-ship order but declined to provide details on the negotiations, including the ships’ expected size.
MSC has six cruise ships currently; two more, the Musica and one unnamed vessel, are on order with Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in St-Nazaire, France, for deliveries in 2006 and 2007.
