Thanks so much for posting these.  Looking forward to additional information being released.  This line look very promising.

 

I have had friends have not so good experiences with MSC, so I am very interested to see how this new line is received.

There will be three distinct MSCs with these new ships:  Explora, Yacht Club, everything else.

Correct.  And there's no comparison between Explora, Yacht Club, and the ordinary MSC experience.  World's apart.

So true!... And now MSC has:

 

1) A baseline mainstream experience (regular MSC).

2) An above premium experience within the mainline ships (YC)

3) An advertised as true luxury experience; even though arguably such a travesty one; IMHO...

 

...But they have nothing as a middle the road premium line on the likes of Princess/X on their catalogue!... It will to be interesting to see where this will end up on the next years to come!...

 

Have a nice day!...
