MSC Cruises To Retire the MSC Melody.

MSC Cruises has announced that the MSC Melody will be removed from the MSC fleet almost immediately. When I checked the website tonight, the ship has been removed.

The MSC Melody was one of the building blocks for the MSC cruise fleet when she was first introduced in 1997.

Built at  C.N.I.M. in France for $100m, the 35,143gt MSC Melody has capacity for just over 1,000 passengers in 532 cabins.

She began her career as the Atlantic for Home Lines in 1982 and ran many years on the New York to Bermuda run. She later was sold to Premier Cruises and sailed as the Starship Atlantic from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas. In 1997, she joined the MSC Fleet sailing on her maiden voyage on May 1, 1997.

The MSC Melody has faithfully served MSC Cruises but has been outclassed by larger ships, featuring many balcony cabins, atriums and other popular amenities.

MSC Cruises said it will be contacting passengers booked on summer cruises to offer them alternative choices.

 The MSC Melody is reportedly available for sale.
