Today Fincantieri delivered the MSC ship to MSC Cruises Seashore, which is the new flagship of the fleet of the company and the largest cruise unit built in Italy. The ship was built in the shipyard of Monfalcone where its twin is currently under construction MSC Seascape that will enter service in the winter 2022.

Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chairman of the cruise division of the MSC group, stressed that "the construction of MSC Seashore is an investment that, on its own, generates a impact on the Italian economy of almost five billion euros and has requested over the last two years the employment of 4,300 workers. In addition, with its entry into service - he added Vago - this new flagship of ours will activate an important economic and employment flywheel, generating a further fallout economic equally significant every year». Vago has recalled that, in total, the investment plan of MSC Cruises in Italy with Fincantieri, «in addition to the three ships already realized, including MSC Seashore, currently provides for the construction of five more units, capable of generating a additional overall economic benefit for the country of over 13 billions.

«MSC Seashore - commented the CEO of Fincantieri, Giuseppe Bono, on the occasion of the award ceremony of the ship - it's the fourth cruise ship we have delivered in Italy during this year still extremely challenging, demonstrating the effectiveness of our system productive and managerial. All these goals, and others that are next, have been achieved successfully and this is not never taken for granted. For this reason I consider this ship the best symbol not only of the recovery for the entire cruise industry, but also the ability of the group to leverage its own skills and its own solidity to fully preserve the own workload."

MSC Seashore will start the inaugural season in the Mediterranean with the classic cruise of the "Six Pearls" which will touch Genoa, Naples, Messina, Valletta, Malta, Barcelona and Marseille.
