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?
