Two MSC cruiseliners and a tropical island beach

MSC Bellissima Cruises

The second ship in MSC's new line of ocean-liners, the Meraviglia-generation, will be launched in March 2019. The ship will be called "Bellissima", and will have similar facilities to the MSC Meraviglia, such as waterslides, a full-sized double bowling alley and an 80-metre long LED ceiling. Something new will be the voice-enabled AI assistants in each cabin, which passengers can ask questions (e.g. what excursions are available) or tell to do things (e.g. play music); and which are fluent in 7 languages (Brazilian Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Mandarin and Spanish). Over time the voice assistants will be installed in all the ships in MSC Cruises' fleet.

A view from the deck of the MSC Bellisima

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.
