The second ship in MSC's new line of ocean-liners, the Meraviglia-generation, will be launched during Spring 2019. The ship will be called "Bellisima", and will have similar facilities to the MSC Meraviglia, such as waterslides and a full-sized bowling alley.
Breaking news: All bookings before the 31st July 2017 on the MSC Bellissima will be given a free "Cirque du Soleil at Sea dinner & show experience".
MSC Bellisima will operate from three home ports, Genoa, Barcelona and Marseille. Seventy-five percent of the cabins will have balconies. Gianni Onorato, chief executive officer of MSC Cruises, stated that "MSC Bellisima is a name that embodies the beauty and the magnificence of this entire next generation of MSC Cruises ultramodern mega-ships."
MSC plans to release up to eleven next-generation cruise-liners, between 2017 and 2026: so far the only other ship that has been named is the MSC Meraviglia, which launches during June 2017.
