MSC confirms talks for post-Panamax ships

April 25, 2005 - MSC Cruises confirmed it is in negotiations with shipyards for two large vessels of 1,600 cabins each.

‘Discussions are on-going with three different shipyards for post-Panamax ships for 2008 and 2009,’ MSC Cruises USA president and ceo Rick Sasso told Seatrade Insider. Sasso declined to specify the yards or other details.

Last month, Seatrade Insider reported that Chantiers de l’Atlantique was developing a 3,000-plus passenger ship design for MSC Cruises, citing an unnamed source at the French yard.

Chantiers is currently building a pair of 90,000gt vessels for MSC. Delivery for MSC Musica is scheduled for early June 2006, while the MSC Orchestra will follow in April 2007.
