Double milestone for MSC

Two of the cruise line's under-construction ships have reached major construction anniversaries.

MSC Cruises and Chantiers de l’Atlantique have begun construction on the newly named MSC World Asia, which is due in 2026.

World Asia will become the fourth LNG ship to join the MSC fleet, and will deliver one of the lowest carbon footprints in the cruise industry.

She will be fitted with shorepower connectivity, and smart technology will be used through the vessel to ensure energy and water use is kept low.

World America is another example of the incredible professional partnership between us and Chantiers de l’Atlantique with whom we have designed five distinct and innovative prototypes – the most recent being the ground-breaking World Class platform,” MSC Cruises Executive Chair Pierfrancesco Vago explained.

“With each and every ship we strive to improve and enhance not only the environmental technology but also new features that enrich the experience for the guest as we design for the future holiday experience.”

MSC also announced its second World-class ship, MSC World America, has floated out, and has entered the final phase of construction, readying for her naming ceremony in Miami on 09 April 2025.

The float out took place on Sunday at the shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, with World America’s naming ceremony followed by a celebratory sailing to Ocean Cay MSC Marine Reserve, MSC’s private island in the Bahamas.
