New MSC Ships Going Green

MSC Cruises' MSC Fantasia and MSC Splendida are being constructed with a strong commitment to the environment. The new ships are being constructed with Comfort Class to safeguard the environment while offering guests optimal comfort. Features of the environmentally sound ships include advanced water treatment systems, energy saving guest rooms and public spaces, which conserve electricity, and stateroom monitoring systems, which continuously control temperature and maintain steady levels without unnecessary energy use. MSC Fantasia is scheduled to debut in fall 2008 with MSC Splendida to follow in spring 2009. (DE)
