MSC Cruises has taken delivery of its new flagship, MSC Virtuosa.
MSC Cruises’ newest fleet member MSC Virtuosa was constructed at Chantiers de l’Atlantique in Saint Nazaire. MSC executive chairman Pierfrancesco Vago, took delivery.
The new flagship for MSC Cruises will enter service for the summer season from 16 April, with four Mediterranean cruises of three, four and 10-nights before moving to its new homeport of Kiel to sail Northern Europe itineraries from 8 May.
MSC Virtuosa is sister ship to current flagship MSC Grandiosa and is the 18th ship in the MSC Cruises fleet.
It will feature a:
- 91.8-metre LED sky dome
- 101-metre-long promenade like those on other Meraviglia-class vessels
- the world’s first humanoid bartender at sea
“My family and I could not miss this opportunity to welcome in person the newest member to our fleet. The delivery of MSC Virtuosa at such a challenging time for our industry symbolises how as a family company we continue to look at the longer term and build our future.”
