Brief description:
MSC GRANDIOSA is the third Meraviglia-class of ship to enter MSC Cruises’ fleet and the first of three Meraviglia-plus ships. Grandiosa has successfully completed her first intensive systems tests at sea during a three-day trial in the Atlantic Ocean at the end of August.  In relation with her sisterships (Meraviglia class) MSC Grandiosa offers even more public space than her sister ships, along with a series of exciting innovations. The ship will next receive her finishing touches at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint Nazaire, France before being officially delivered to MSC Cruises on Oct. 31-2019.
MSC Grandiosa will introduce new MSC for Me features such as improved pre-planning capabilities. On-board packages and shore excursions can be booked through the MSC for Me app and added to personal agendas. Passengers can purchase a special Bluetooth MSC for Me wristband with individual location mapping, a pay service that is being introduced in addition to the Kids Locator launched in 2017.
MSC Cruises has announced that its new Grandiosa will introduce two new major and important onboard environmental advances to complement a wide range of existing environmental technologies across the company’s entire fleet: a state-of-the-art Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and next-generation Advanced Wastewater Treatment (AWT) system. The SCR system will help reduce nitrogen oxide by 90 percent through advanced active emissions control technology, according to the company. The ship will also be fitted with a next-generation AWT system. Through very fine filtration, wastewater from MSC Grandiosa will undergo a comprehensive purification process that transforms it to near tap-water quality, MSC said.  This will also allow MSC Grandiosa to be certified to operate in delicate environments such as the Baltic Sea and Alaska. The ship will also have a shorepower plug, MSC said, as well as an exhaust gas cleaning system.
