A new cruise ship is heading our way, built to host more passengers than ever before.
MSC Cruises announced plans for its new World Class ships – which will carry a maximum of 6,850 guests and boast 2,760 cabins – at a ceremony in France’s Saint-Nazaire last week, with an artist’s rendering of the ship showing that she’ll be quite a sight to behold.
The 200,000–ton vessels, the first of which will be delivered in 2022, will have room for 70 more passengers than the current record-holder, Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, which has a capacity of 6,780.

The World Class’ futuristic ‘Y’ shape structure will enable sweeping panoramic sea views, according to its manufacturers, SFX France, as well as increase the proportion of balcony cabins.
Described by MSC as being the world’s ‘most modern and technologically advanced cruise ships’, their bows have been designed to further improve stability and hydrodynamics.
