Letter of intent for two prototype cruise vessels

The new prototype is the result of a long development process, conducted in the framework of STX’s ECORIZON ® programme, leading to the creation of a new generation of ships that are cleaner, more efficient and more technologically advanced, MSC said. They will be water-emission free, while their hull and propulsion system will be optimised for better energy efficiency. The installation of scrubbers will allow for fumes to be neutralised and CO2 emissions to be in accordance with the latest international maritime regulations, the Italian-Swiss cruise company further noted.
The two units will be 315m long and 43m wide and have a gross tonnage of about 167,600 tonnes.
In 2,250 passenger cabins and nearly 820 crew cabins, each vessel can accommodate 5,700 passengers and 1,536 crew members. Among the new features of the ships there will be specially designed cabins for families and an “extended” MSC Yacht Club.
Once the financial package is secured the contract is binding and construction of the two vessels will commence in the spring of 2015. The delivery is scheduled for 2017 and 2019, respectively.

The shipping company MSC Cruises and STX France have signed a letter of intent for the construction of two new cruise ships, with an option for two more.
