MSC Meraviglia Delivered

MSC Cruises officially took delivery of the MSC Meraviglia yesterday (May 31) in France.

During the ship’s flag ceremony, which pays tribute to centuries-old maritime tradition, the company’s newest flagship received its official flag and blessings for good fortune.

At 171,598 GRT and with a guest capacity of 5,714 (4,488 double occupancy), Meraviglia is both the biggest ship to ever be built by a European ship owner (MSC) and the biggest to come into service this year.

Following a christening ceremony in Le Havre on June 3, Meraviglia will start its inaugural season sailing the Western Mediterranean, calling at Vigo (Spain), Lisbon (Portugal), all the way to the Mediterranean, calling in Barcelona (Spain), Marseille (France) and eventually Genoa (Italy).
