On the occasion of the MSC Meraviglia delivery in May 2017, Chantiers de l’Atlantique and MSC Cruises announced the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding for 2 ships plus 2 options, due for delivery respectively in 2022 and 2024 for the 1st ones and 2025 and 2026 for the options.
The World Class ships belong to a new class of ships, the 5th one developed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique for MSC Cruises, bringing to 20 the number of ships delivered by the French yard over the last 15 years.
Among the main features developed for these innovative ships, the new LNG propulsion and system of waste management are noticeable. The design implemented by Chantiers de l’Atlantique will allow the passengers first to enjoy an outstanding view over the ocean thanks to the aft Y-shaped structure and also to take advantage of an enhanced comfort thanks to the stem designed specially to increase both stability and aero dynamism.
