MSC Cruises’ Meraviglia is to appear in a new hour-long TV series, Building Giants, on More4 on Monday May 7 at 9pm.
The hour-long episode was filmed at the STX France shipyard and will follow the 5,700-passenger ship’s construction, the installation of 2,200 cabins, and the installation of the longest LED Sky Screen ever built on a ship.
MSC Meraviglia was the first of the line’s next-generation ships to enter service last June as part of a €10.5 billion investment.
Sister ships MSC Bellissima and MSC Grandiosa, are also being built at STX France shipyard.
MSC Cruises UK and Ireland managing director Antonio Paradiso said: “To have MSC Meraviglia as one of the featured builds in this popular programme is a testament to the world-class naval architects and engineers that build our ships.
“The show recognises how we are really leading the way in the design and build of modern ships for the future and we are proud we to showcase this process to a UK audience.
“This also shows the appetite that exists in the UK for the cruise industry and we are delighted to once again feature in a popular TV series that helps to demonstrate what makes our brand so unique.”
