MSC Cruises officially took delivery of its new flagship MSC Seaview. The delivery ceremony took place in the presence of Gianluigi Aponte, the ship owner as well as Founder and Executive Chairman of MSC Group. Also present at the ceremony were Pierfrancesco Vago (Executive Chairman MSC Cruises), other members of the Aponte and Aponte-Vago families, Giuseppe Bono (CEO Fincantieri), as well as other regional and local authorities and dignitaries.


Hot on the heels of MSC Seaside coming into service at the end of 2017, MSC Seaview is ready to start sailing her inaugural season in the Mediterranean. The ship represents a key highlight for 2018 as she is the one MSC Cruises new-build coming into service this year, the second ship to be built by Fincantieri, the 3rd ship to be completed in just 12 months, and the 15th ship to join the MSC Cruises global fleet.


The ship with her iconic design and generous outdoor public spaces will be a game changer for guests who want to make the most of the sun and outdoors, whilst enjoying the sea during their cruise experience. She will sail in the Mediterranean for her inaugural summer season and in South America for the winter season, hence further strengthening the company’s position in two markets in which MSC Cruises is the leading cruise brand.
