Is MSC Cruises launching a luxury fleet?
According to reports in the Italian press the mainstream
brand is close to placing an order with Fincantieri, with the intention of
entering the ultra-luxury cruise market. The move would be a big departure from
the mainstream cruise industry’s desire to build bigger ships.
The four-ship order would have combined capacity of just
over 3,000 passengers, meaning each ship would carry around 750 passengers
Reports in The Medi Telegraph claim the order is imminent, however MSC Cruises is yet to confirm the plan
