Shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique floats out the MSC World America and commences building the newly titled MSC World Asia.

French shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique has reportedly floated out MSC World America and began constructing the third World-class vessel of the same brand at its yard in Saint-Nazaire, France.

MSC World America was floated out of dry dock on 7 April and will now undergo the final outfitting ahead of its christening at MSC Cruises’ new dedicated terminal at Florida’s PortMiami on 9 April 2025.

The 22-deck-high vessel will accommodate more than 6,700 passengers in more than 2,600 suites and guest cabins and offer more than 40,000 sq. meters of public space.

This will include seven distinct districts with lounges, bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues—all tailored to North America’s passenger source market.

Like MSC World Europa, the first-ever World-class vessel christened in 2022 (November), MSC World America will be powered by LNG and linked to shore power.

It will boast a plumb bow vertically from the waterline and a Y-shaped af, which opens onto an outdoor promenade.

MSC World America is yet another instance of the professional alliance between the firm and the team at Chantiers de l’Atlantique, the firm with whom they have designed five innovative and distinct prototypes — the most recent one being the path-breaking world-class platform, stated Pierfrancesco Vago, executive chair at MSC Cruises.

Chantiers de l’Atlantique has cut the steel for its third World-class vessel, which MSC Cruises disclosed will be called MSC World Asia and have signature design elements, experiences, and features inspired by Asia.

According to MSC Cruises, the cruise vessel will be an “evolution” of the first two world-class vessels, with an even lower carbon footprint.

Vago mentioned that the aim of each vessel is to enhance the environmental technology and new features that improve the experience for the passengers as they design their future holiday experiences.

MSC World Asia proceeds with tradition, and with such an important milestone as steel cutting, they are pleased to confirm that she will offer more advanced features to future-proof marine and onboard hospitality tech and guest experience.

MSC World Asia is due for its delivery in 2026.

Laurent Castaing, the general manager at Chantiers de l’Atlantique, said they are delighted to commence the construction on MSC World Asia.

The third vessel in the world-class sequence will boast cutting-edge tech and be one of the world’s most energy-efficient and cleanest vessels.

She symbolizes MSC Cruises’ and Chantiers de l’Atlantique’s long-term cooperation and dedication toward this environment.
