High-Tech MSC Seascape Launched in New York City!

MSC Cruises has officially welcomed the brand new, innovative and dazzling MSC Seascape to its fleet.

MSC Seascape was launched and named at the Manhattan Cruise Terminal in the Big Apple, New York City, witnessed by more than 3,000 esteemed guests. New York will be MSC Seascape’s homeport in April 2023, where the fantastic new ship will sail from to a number of North American ports. 

At the launch event, guests were treated to a spectacular performance by international singer-songwriter Matteo Bocelli, plus a gourmet gala dinner and performance by international Grammy Award winner singer/songwriter Ne-Yo.

MSC Seascape was blessed virtually by her Godmother, movie icon Sophia Loren, and the traditional cutting of the ribbon to name the new ship was conducted by the daughter of Gianluigi Aponte, MSC Group’s founder and executive chairman, Alexa Aponte-Vago. 

One of the highlights of the past 20 years has been to officiate the christening of MSC Cruises fleet not only because the Apontes have become like family to me but also because MSC has always occupied a special place in my heart. 

Let me bless the MSC Seascape, her great crew and all her passengers.
