March 04, 2019

She's here! This March MSC Bellissima launched with a major ceremony in Southampton. Andrea Bocelli, Craig David, Holly Willoughby and more joined the industry to celebrate MSC's second Meraviglia Class ship after big sister MSC Meraviglia. 

Although pretty much identical to Meraviglia, Bellissima, #BeautyAtSea has generally wowed with features such as the LED dome in the Promenade, 12 dining venues, 20 bars and a water park! New features include 2 new Cirque Du Soleil shows. new restaurants including Hola Tapas and MSC Zoe technology in your cabin. Bellissima will cruise around the Mediterranean in 2019.

Hot off the press we're hearing that MSC Cruises have announced the latest Seaside Class ship...the steel cutting of MSC Seashore has started and we'll all get to see her when she arrives in 2021! 

This won't just be a Seaside class ship, but will in fact be a Seaside EVO environmentally advanced ship, slightly bigger, slightly more staterooms and with some new features but building on the success of MSC Seaside & MSC Seaview! 

Obviously the detail on new features is scarce at this stage but we'll bring you all the news when we have it! 


November 22, 2018

There are just 100 days left before MSC Bellissima is christened in Southampton and MSC have marked the occasion with some new images and revealed a couple of new features to look forward to! 

The most interesting perhaps is the introduction of personal digital assistant Zoe...the worlds first digital cruise assistant (think Alexa). Zoe will operate in 7 languages and will answer the most common cruise queries from the comfort of your stateroom! There will be 2 brand new Cirque Du Soleil shows as well as a host of new West End style shows to enjoy in the theatre. 

There will be a new Grand Canyon themed waterpark called Arizona Aquapark, an impressive new Sports Bar and a new Tapas themed restaurant from Michelin starred chef Ramon Freixa called HOLA! 

We suspect there is more to be announced here leading up to March 19 so watch this space! For more of the new images check the MSC Media Gallery now...

If any Premier League club was going to partner with a cruise line it had to be ChelSEA wasn't it? But last week the pun became real as MSC Cruises made a fantastic announcement that they had agreed a multi million partnership with Chelsea Football Club. 

From now until 2021 when you see Chelsea on TV or even in person at Stamford Bridge you'll see the familiar MSC logo on the pitchside advertising, there'll be digital advertising which will feature Chelsea's players, you can expect Chelsea memorabilia onboard ships starting with MSC Bellissima. Speaking of Bellissima there may even be a player or two involved in the christening in March 19. 

The move is a fantastic one and MSC are to be congratulated for bringing cruise to a new audience that would not 'traditionally' have been associated with cruise. This will further help break down those misconceptions about cruising....there is a cruise line for everyone and if you're a Chelsea fan it seems that MSC are yours!! 


October 22, 2018

In the last few days the worlds fastest growing cruise line MSC Cruises announced that they are entering the world of Ultra luxury cruising alongside the likes of Silversea, Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn et al.  

It is something of a surprising move but MSC will launch 4 ships each at approximately 64,000 tonnes each with approximately 500 staterooms each! The experience will be something like MSC Yacht Club so if you've experienced that you'll have an idea of what to expect...think 24 hour butler service, 24 hour conceirge service, 24 hour room service with all inclusive gourmet food and drinks in your luxury suite with lavish fixtures and fittings! 

The first ship will launch in 2023 with 1 ship a year in the 3 years following... it will be interesting to see what impact they make on the ultra luxury market! Would you cruise ultra luxury with MSC?
