Earlier this month MSC Cruises confirmed that they are retiring their smallest ship in the fleet, the 1,062-guest MSC Melody. First launched in 1982, the MSC Melody has been part of the MSC fleet since 1995, when she was originally purchased as the Starship Atlantic and given a complete overhaul.
According to a statement from the cruise line, “The decision to withdraw one of its first and most traditional cruise ships reaffirms MSC’s focus on cutting-edge service and reflects the company’s continued desire to offer travelers the highest standards in product innovation and the maximum in comfort, elegance and technology across the entire fleet.”
Passengers who were already booked on the vessel are being rebooked on other ships in the fleet.
