MSC Cruises have been expanding rapidly over the past decade. Their brand of mass-market cruises on fresh, modern ships really seems to have struck a chord, and MSC Magnifica is just one of the many newbuilds they have added to their fleet over the past decade.
One of four Musica-Class ships, MSC Magnifica was built in France, and entered service in March 2010. Marginally larger than her sister ships, she has a length of 294m, a tonnage of 95,100 and accommodates up to 3,605 passengers and 1,027 crew.
I took the following photos as MSC Magnifica departed Bergen this afternoon.
