MSC Cruises has taken delivery of its new flagship Msc Virtuosa at Chantiers de l’Atlantique di Saint-Nazaire.

The vessel, the 18th in the Msc Cruises’ fleet, will enter service on April 16th, 2021 for the summer season, with four Mediterranean cruises of 3, 4 and 10 nights departing from Genoa – the company’s homeport worldwide – and then moving to Kiel (Germany), where it will begin its Northern European itineraries.

“The delivery of MSC Virtuosa at such a challenging time for our industry symbolizes how as a family company we continue to look at the longer term and build our future,” said Pierfrancesco Vago, Executive Chairman of the company.
