The first of these new ultra luxury cruise ships is scheduled to debut in 2023. A new ship will be launched each year until 2026. With the addition of these new ships, MSC Cruises will be adding a total of 17 new cruise ships by 2027.

The four luxury ships will feature, amongst other, the best and latest environmental technology and other cutting-edge maritime solutions at sea. They will also showcase highly-innovative design as well as introduce ground-breaking options for guest comfort and relaxation.

Pierfrancesco Vago, MSC Cruises’ Executive Chairman, gave the following statement about the cruise line entering the luxury cruise market: “It is off the back of the great success of our ship-within-a-ship luxury concept that our guests asked us to enter into the ultra-luxury segment, as a natural evolution of the MSC Yacht Club. These ships will be able to offer unique itineraries, thanks to their size, and the guest services will be taken to another level, including our personalized MSC Yacht Club butler service, available 24/7.

  1. Unfortunately, I am booked for MSC Seaside, December 29th-2019, after a bad experience on MSC Fantasia, where my wife an I lost our flight in Barcelona after Ship arrived almost 2 hours late, to get off the Ship was a chaos, screaming, pushing each other, as I NEVER saw in any of the 51 Cruise we did so far. Worse Cruise Line is denying to refund our second tickets we had to get at Barcelona Airport.
    Service on MSC Fantasia was very poor, I could not use the internet I did pay almost $100.00, to have signal I had to go to the balcony, or to a public are.
    At dinner, where the 2 time we went there, if table set-up was complete, was a ‘miracle”, or knife was missing or fork, etc, and waiters take too long to serve butter, for example. On Reception desk People was very impolite, etc.
    Again, as a Travel Agent, I do NOT recommend to any o my Clients and after this voyage on Seaside, I will NEVER AGAIN cruise on MSC Ships.
