MSC Cruises’ MSC Magnifica to undergo lengthening and refurbishment

MSC Cruises’ MSC Magnifica's new water park

MSC Cruises’ MSC Magnifica is to undergo major refurbishment that will lengthen the ship by 23mtr, adding an additional 7,000 sqr mtr of space.

This will create 215 extra cabins, a new water park, a redesigned kids’ area, plus additional features such as two new restaurants and a shopping area.

The cruise lines’ four Lirica-class ships underwent a similar refurbished programme in 2015 as part of a €130m project.

Green initiatives

The ship will also be installed with a selective catalytic reduction system and advanced wastewater treatment system. To help reduce emissions while in port, the ship will be fitted with shore power capability.
