The MSC Seaview is slightly behind schedule, and will now be delivered on June 4, forcing the cancellation of a preview cruise scheduled June 7 through 10.
While a nearly 4,000-strong team at the Fincantieri shipyard is working 24/7 around the clock to finish the ship for her inaugural season, she will now require a few extra days of final fitting,” MSC Cruises said.
MSC said that the inauguration ceremony will no longer take place in Civitavecchia, the port city for Rome. Instead, the ceremony will be moved to Genoa, where the ship is scheduled to take its initial cruise on June 10.
Following delivery, the Seaview is scheduled to cruise in the Mediterranean this summer. It will move to South America for the 2018-19 winter season.
