Default MSC Orders new ships

MSC Cruises orders two ships from Alstom

SAINT-NAZAIRE, France -- Mediterranean Shipping Co. will build two cruise ships for its MSC Cruises brand, Alstom said Monday.
The contract calls for two 2,550-passenger cruise ships, with an option for a third vessel, which will be designed for cruising in the Mediterranean and Caribbean markets. The ships will be delivered in June 2006 and in spring 2007.

Patrick Bossier, president of Alstom's Marine sector, said the deal results from "fruitful cooperation" between MSC and the yard, and added Alstom's marine division "will continue to grow on the medium- to long-term."

Alstom, which operates the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard here, did not have another ship order on the books beyond the MSC Cruises' 1,760-passenger Opera, which will be delivered in May. It also constructed the Opera's sister ship, the 1,530-passenger Lirica.
