Launched on 3 June 2017 in the port of Le Havre, in the North of France, the MSC Meraviglia, the largest ship ever built in Europe, has left for her first cruise. The ship, of which we have followed the construction phases, is the new queen of the sea and is the head of the class of two sister ships which also includes the MSC Bellissima. Built in the Chantiers de l'Atlantique of STX France in Saint-Nazaire, in the summer of 2017 the Meraviglia will be positioned in Western Mediterranean and will stop in places full of history and great beauty.

The ship is ready for all seas and all seasons. After the summer of 2017 in the Mediterranean she will reach the Baltic Sea for cruises in Northern Europe and then move to the Caribbean. She offers 6 ports of embarkation in the western Mediterranean, including Genoa, Marseille and Barcelona, ​​as well as other Mediterranean destinations such as Naples, Messina and Valletta (Malta).

Designed to meet all the needs of cruise passengers with its cutting-edge design, this ultramodern and one-of-a-kind unit is 315 meters long, 65 meters high and prepares to accommodate over 5.700 passengers.


The MSC Meraviglia is conceived to be a destination in itself: on board there are four swimming pools, 12 restaurants, 20 bars, two regulation bowling alleys, a Formula 1 simulator and a flight simulator.

But the distinctive element of this cruise ship is the promenade that is located in the center, 96 meters long with the ceiling entirely covered with one LED screen on which enveloping scenographies are projected.

MSC Cruises is the largest private company in the world and with the Meraviglia opens a new class of ships. No more restaurants with two shifts for lunch or dinner, but places that are always open for all guests.

The spacious MSC Yacht Club it is reserved for those looking for luxury and exclusivity. It features duplex suite with personal swimming pool.

On board guests can watch the permanent shows of the Cirque du Soleil at Sea, whose artists perform in a show specially created for the ship's guests.
