Posted by

The largest single expansion planned in the cruise industry comes from MSC Cruises, which has 12 ships on order from 2021 through 2027.

The fastest-expanding cruise line in the world has $11.3 billion invested in 12 new ships, adding approximately 44,496 berths to the company’s fleet.

Of note, the MSC World Europa and her three sisters will be powered by clean-burning LNG, as will another Meraviglia-class vessel, due to debut in 2023.

MSC is also launching a luxury brand, with ships expected to be delivered annually starting in 2023.
