This mesmerizing time lapse shows the piece by piece construction of the 167,600 ton, 1,033-foot long MSC Meraviglia cruise ship.
The Meraviglia was built at the STX France shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, the same shipyard where Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas was assembled.
The vessel is part of MSC’s ambitious $10.2 billion investment program and is the first to launch of 11 ships coming into service between 2017 and 2026.
The Meraviglia, which translates to “wonder” in Italian, is sure to amaze with its contemporary design and feature-filled decks. It is the biggest ship ever built by a European-based cruise line able to carry 4,500 passengers at double occupancy.
The Meraviglia will begin service in June of 2017 and spend its first summer sailing the Western Mediterranean.
