MSC Cruises has signed a letter of intent with STX France for four new "World Class" ships that will be based on a new, next-generation prototype. 

The four new ships will be in addition to the seven new builds that MSC Cruises already has on order with four Meraviglia and Meraviglia-Plus class ships at STX France and three Seaside class ships at Fincantieri – meaning a total of 11 new cruise ships on order between 2017 and 2026 and an investment plan worth a total of $10.2 billion.
