Meraviglia is the lead ship of MSC’s new Vista generation vessels with the then later MSC Bellissima in 2019 each of which will have a passenger capacity of 4,500. In that respect, the Vista class will rank ninth in the world. Meraviglia was delivered on June 2017, and she’s operating initially in the western Mediterranean. She will call on ports such as Malta, Barcelona, Marseille, Genoa, Naples, Messina, Citaveccia, and Palermo, in her inaugural season. Meraviglia has a promenade with a long LED roof, a water park with 3-4 water slides and a Himalayan rope course. The ship’s entertainment includes a theater and a Cirque du Soleil show in its own theater at the back of the ship. The ship also features over 10 restaurants and a bellemese spa named the MSC Aurea Spa. In the fall of 2019, she will reposition to Miami, sailing to the Caribbean as part of a North American expansion program by MSC.
